    • Starter Kit for NXP LPC1857 MCU (Includes ULINK-ME Debug Adapter)
    • Starter Kit for NXP LPC1857 MCU (Includes ULINK-ME Debug Adapter)


    The Keil MCB1857 Evaluation Board enable you to create and test working programs based on the NXP LPC1850 family of ARM Cortex™-M3 processor-based devices. The MCB1857 Evaluation Board ships with the LPC1857 device that is a superset of several other device variants of the LPC18xx microcontroller series. The MCB1857 board contain all the hardware components required in a single-chip LPC device-based system.

    The MCB1857 Evaluation Board (MCB1857) and Starter Kit (MCB1857UME) includes the MDK-ARM Lite Edition Tools. These tools help you get started writing programs and testing the microcontroller and its capabilities. Sample applications that run on the MCB1857 evaluation board, and a Quickstart guide are included.

    The LPC185x/3x/2x/1x are ARM Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers for embedded applications. The ARM Cortex-M3 is a next generation core that offers system enhancements such as low power consumption, enhanced debug features, and a high level of support block integration.

    The LPC185x/3x/2x/1x operate at CPU frequencies of up to 180 MHz. The ARM Cortex-M3 CPU incorporates a 3-stage pipeline and uses a Harvard architecture with separate local instruction and data buses as well as a third bus for peripherals. The ARM Cortex-M3 CPU also includes an internal prefetch unit that supports speculative branching. The LPC185x/3x/2x/1x include up to 1 MB of flash and 136 kB of on-chip SRAM, 16 kB of EEPROM memory, a quad SPI Flash Interface (SPIFI), a State Configurable Timer (SCT) subsystem, two High-speed USB controllers, Ethernet, LCD, an external memory controller, and multiple digital and analog peripherals.

    Note: MCB1857UME Starter Kit includes ULINK-ME Debug Adapter
