Development board combines best of mbed/Arduino/LPCXpresso
NXP has announced the LPC800-MAX mbed/Arduino development board.
Based on the company's LPC812 microcontroller, which is sampling now, the board combines mbed, LPCXpresso and Arduino connectivity, allowing users to choose and work with their favourite elements from each environment.
"The LPC800-MAX will open a new world of possibilities, as it allows users to pick the parts they like from the mbed, LPCXpresso as well as the Arduino eco systems, and use them together or however they choose," said Henrik Flodell, tools and embedded ecosystem manager, NXP.
"Whether you're an enthusiast, a maker with a creative project idea, or a professional developer working on a commercial product design, the LPC800-MAX board provides flexibility and access to best in class tools, as well as strong community support around the world."
The board is due for release this April. Key features include on board debug via the mbed usb interface, CMSIS-DAP and usb serial on an LPC11U35, Arduino compatible connectors on the top of the board and standard mbed and LPCXpresso connectors on the bottom.
