New NXP V3 LPC Xpresso development boards from element14 for faster evaluation-to-production

More choice and flexibility to easily add more functions to projects via compatible shields


element14 has announced the addition of three new NXP development boards in the LPC Xpresso family to its extensive portfolio of technology products, which includes the biggest range of development kits available globally from one single source.

These new LPC Xpresso V3 boards are part of an established and popular toolchain featuring the power of LPC microcontrollers based on ARMs Cortex-M cores. The boards are able to work with most existing LPC Xpresso accessories and Arduino compatible shields to enhance functional capabilities, offering more versatility for applications in motor control, power management, white goods, RFID readers, embedded audio applications, industrial automation, and e-metering.

David Shen, Group Chief Technology Officer at Premier Farnell said, “We are excited to work with NXP to add these new Xpresso V3 boards to the highly popular LPC Xpresso ecosystem.  With the built-in debug probe, PMOD and Arduino connectors as well as an additional row of expansion port pins, these boards offer a rich hardware and software experience for rapid prototyping of products based on the LPC8000 and LPC4300 dual-core microcontrollers.”

LPC Xpresso 18S37 -  ARM Cortex MCU development board offers evaluation and prototyping opportunities for the LPC1800 LPC MCU family; it features an ARM Cortex-M3 core running up to 180MHz

Both LPC Xpresso 4337 and 43S37 ARM Cortex MCU development boards offer evaluation and prototyping opportunities for the LPC4300 LPC MCU family; it features dual ARM cores (M4F and M0+) running up to 208MHz

Both the 18S37 and 43S37 include an AES hardware encryption engine for protecting data communications and application code in required in multiple applications including IoT.

The LPC General Purpose Shield Board works with V2, V3, and MAX LPCXpresso MCU development boards to provide easy access to several commonly used peripherals like LCD dot matrix display, user LEDs and 5 position joystick, inertial and temperature sensors and more. Join the discussion at

The NXP LPC Xpresso boards are available from Farnell element14 in Europe (priced from £12.35), Newark element14 in North America (priced from $25.00), and element14 in Asia (priced from S$35.18); details are available at
