    Kit Overview

    The LPCXpresso Base BoardLPCXpresso Base Board makes it possible for you to get started with experiments and prototyping immediately. It is designed for the LPCXpresso Board (with multiple targets LPC176xLPC176x, LPC1343LPC1343, LPC1227LPC1227, LPC11C24LPC11C24, LPC11U14LPC11U14, LPC1114LPC1114, and more to come) and the mbed module from NXP. Note that the LPCXpresso Base BoardLPCXpresso Base Board is delivered with two pin lists. These pin lists must be soldered onto the LPCXpresso target board before it can be used with the LPCXpresso Base Board. The LPCXpresso Base Board can also be used together with the mbed module. The mbed module already has pin lists, so no special preparation is needed for this module.


    The board has been design in cooperation with several Universities in order to also be suitable for training and education situations. The many on-board peripherals easy your learning curve and speed up your program development. Those peripherals include accelerometer, I2C-EEPROM, SPI-Flash, 5-key Joystick, 7-segment Display, Light Sensor, OLED Display (including simple Graphics Library, PCA9532 (LEDs), RGB LED, Rotary Switch, Temperature Sensor, UART2 (I2C/SPI to UART, SC16IS752IPW,112SC16IS752IPW,112).


    The following LPCXpresso Boards can be plug into this Base Board directly. For more information about LPXpresso Boards, click here.PNG

    Supplied Development Tools


    LPCXpresso IDE: Includes best-in-class C programming environment with advanced features such as syntax highlighting, code folding, click-through links to definitions and declarations. The optimized GCC compiler and C libraries for the Cortex-M0 enables users to develop high-quality software solutions quickly and cost-effectively. The IDE features several LPC-specific enhancements and is simplified for 8/16 bit users with NXP’s proprietary interface which employs a single perspective view, enabling a seamless interconnect between code development & debugging. The latest version of the IDE is always downloaded from the LPCXpresso website.


    LPC-Link Debugger: The LPC-Link is equipped with a 10-pin JTAG header, and it seamlessly connects to a target via USB (the USB interface and other debug features are provided by NXP's ARM9 based LPC3154 MCU). Cutting the traces between the LPC-link and the target will make the LPC-Link a stand-alone JTAG debugger. This enables the LPCXpresso platform to be connected to an external target and used to develop for a wide variety of NXP's Cortex-M0, Cortex-M3, and ARM7/9 based applications.The LPC-Link debug probe can also be disconnected from the target and used directly with the customer’s own design using the on-board 10-pin JTAG/SWD header. The LPC-Link uses the LPC3154 as an ARM9-based debug engine, providing an HS USB interface for accelerated code download and faster debugging experience.
