This LPCXpresso is for the LPC1347
- 72MHz ARM Cortex-M3 MCU with 64 KB flash and 12 KB SRAM
- Full-Speed (12Mb/s) USB 2.0, with ROM-based drivers for USB HID, MSC, CDC and DFU
- Built in USB bootloader makes it easy to update the flash on any PC (no extra HW or SW required!)
- 4KB internal EEPROM
- 12-bit 500k sample/s ADC, 4 HW timers, 2 SPI ports, I2C, and USART
Looking for an affordable general-purpose, USB-enabled MCU that packs a lot of punch in a small package? The LPC1347 is an excellent choice with a highly efficient ARM Cortex-M3 core at up to 72MHz, 64KB flash and 12KB SRAM. What makes it stand out in the crowd of small M3 MCUs? It has built in ROM-based USB drivers that make it relatively easy to implement USB, but more importantly it includes a super-handy USB bootloader that makes the device appear as a USB Mass Storage device with 64KB flash. To update your firmware, just drag and drop your binaries files onto the flash drive, reset, and voila … your device is programmed! No extra HW, no special software, and no worries about being able to de-brick your device in the future!
In traditional Adafruit fashion, though, we wouldn’t just throw something fun at you and say ‘have at it!’. KTOWN has put together a completely open source code base for the LPC1347 (and it’s Cortex M0-based cousins the LPC11U24 and LPC11U37) that makes it easy to get started with this board and MCU from the command-line (using a Makefile), or with several modern IDEs (NXP’s free LPCXpresso IDE, Rowley Associates Crossworks for ARM, The free cross-platform CodeLite IDE, as well as experimental project files for Keil). The code base also includes drivers for a lot of popular Adafruit sensors, like the ADXL345, the BMP085, some OLED and graphic displays, and lot of other goodies!
If you’re new to ARM, and need a bit of hand-holding to get started, this is probably the board you want to pick up: its got that nice built in USB boot-loader, lots of example code, GCC support and a debugger built in.
