    Kit Overview


    Embedded Artists' LPC12D27 QuickStart BoardLPC12D27 QuickStart Board lets you get up-and-running quickly with NXP's Cortex-M0 LPC12D27LPC12D27 microcontroller. This evaluation board offers many features that ease your learning curve and speed up your program development.


    The center of the design is the LPC12D27LPC12D27 MCU with integrated segment LCD controller from NXP. The LPC12D27 are ARM Cortex-M0 based microcontrollers for embedded applications featuring a high level of integration and low power consumption. The ARM Cortex-M0 is a next generation core that offers system enhancements such as enhanced debug features and a higher level of support block integration.


    The LPC12D27LPC12D27 is a dual-chip module consisting of a LPC12D27LPC12D27 single-chip microcontroller combined with a PCF8576DT/2,118PCF8576DT/2,118 Universal LCD driver in a low-cost 100-pin package. The LCD driver provides 40 segments and supports from one to four backplanes. Display overhead is minimized by an on-chip display RAM with auto-increment addressing. The LPC12D27LPC12D27 operate at CPU frequencies of up to 45 MHz and include 128 kB of flash memory and 8 kB of data memory. All pins of the LPC12D27 are directly accessible via JP1-JP4. These connection points are placed around the LPC12D27 chip on the board.


    The board also features a SWD interface for LPC12D27LPC12D27, i.e., debug interface. It is the new and smaller footprint standard ARM debug connector. It has 2x5 pins in 50 mil pitch. There are also pads, J2, for the older and bigger debug connector standard, the 2x10 pos, 100 mil pitch shrouded IDC connector. If needed, this connector can be mounted.


    Key Applications: White goods, Portable medical devices, Lighting control, Thermostats, Alarm systems, etc.
