    • Consumer and computing products
    • Building automation, industrial control, and energy-efficient smart appliances with UI
    • Automotive accessories
    • Medical devices


    LPC4300 Microcontrollers- ARM Cortex-M4F and Cortex-M0 coprocessor core ideal for:

    • High-throughput applications requiring fast data-handling peripherals
    • High-speed digital and/or analog data acquisition
    • Smart meters, embedded audio, industrial automation, industrial control, telematics, white goods, power management, point-of sale devices, medical devices, and automotive accessories


    Security features for protecting data communications & application code

    LPC ARM microcontroller models designated with “S” have security features ideal for applications where data transfer and system code must be secure like private data transfer over public networks and internet of things applications.
    • Hardware-accelerated AES-128 encryption engine for fast bulk encryption
    • Encrypted and hardware-randomized AES keys stored in two 128-bit non-volatile OTP memories prevents cloning
    • True random number generator for unique key creation
    • Boot ROM drivers supporting secure boot of authenticated, encrypted firmware image
    • Code read protection (CRP) prevents unauthorized access to internal Flash


    LPCXpresso IDE

    The LPCXpresso IDE is a comprehensive, highly-integrated Eclipse-based IDE software development toolchain with many enhancements to simplify development with Cortex-M based LPC microcontrollers. The LPCXpresso IDE also integrates an ever-growing set of specialist tools such as pin mux configuration and state configurable time (SCT) for developers to reduce development time.
    • Complete C/C integrated development environment for Windows, MacOS and Linux
    • Industry-standard GNU toolchain with many Eclipse plugins available and supported
    • Fully featured debugger supporting JTAG and SWD interfaces
    • Standard Newlib and optimized, small-footprint embedded C library unique to LPCXpresso
    • Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS) libraries and source code
    • Device-specific support for LPC Cortex-M-, ARM7-, and ARM9-based MCUs
    • No assembler required with Cortex-M based MCUs
    • Available in free and Pro versions


    LPCOpen software and drivers support

    LPCOpen is a free of charge, extensive collection of software libraries (drivers and middleware) and example programs that enable developers to create multifunctional products based on LPC microcontrollers.

    • Access to key middleware elements like graphics object libraries, networking stacks and USB
    • Extensive set of examples to illustrate core driver library functions and middleware like I²C, UART, SPI, and GPIO interfaces, USB, Ethernet and graphics libraries.
    • LPCOpen libraries are RTOS agnostic and can be used with a simple control loop. Examples are also included in each software download package for use with FreeRTOS.


    Expand capabilities and functionality with add-on boards already available

    Building on the Xpresso platform with additional capabilities, the LPCXpresso V3 series boards are compatible with most Arduino UNO R3 boards, offering a wide range of choices for prototyping and building proof of concept designs.

    The LPC General Purpose Shield Board offers easy
    access to several commonly used peripherals to a
    range of LPCXpresso V2, V3 and MAX boards.
