NXP V3 LPC Xpresso development boards, in distribution

April 09, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Farnell element14 has added three NXP development boards in the LPC Xpresso family; the LPC Xpresso V3 boards are part of the toolchain hosting LPC microcontrollers based on ARM’s 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 such as motor control, power management, white goods, RFID readers, embedded audio applications, industrial automation, and e-metering.

The distributor comments that, 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 such as LCD dot matrix display, user LEDs and 5-position joystick, inertial and temperature sensors and more.
