Getting Started with the MCU – THE MUSIC VIDEO!

Getting Started with the MCU – THE MUSIC VIDEO! This is for the lpc1768 which is the big daddy to our lpc1343. nxp makes great chips! We just got lpc1343 boards back in stock!


Lpc1343 Lrg-1

BACK IN STOCK – MicroBuilder LPC1343 (ARM Cortex M3) – v1.6. The LPC1343 is a low-power, 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 microprocessor designed specifically for embedded devices. This is a fully assembled version of the LPC1343 Reference Design from talented Parisian designer, Microbuilder. No soldering required (female header pins are pre-soldered onto the board), this devboard is ready to go out of the box.

Please note that while there are some great introductory getting-started tutorials for this board, its best used by those with microcontroller experience. If you’ve played with AVR or PICs and are intrigued by the low cost and ultra fast 32-bit ARM Cortex M3 series, this is the dev board to get! If you’re just getting started with microcontrollers and electronics you should check out the Arduino which is very beginner-friendly.

In addition to publishing the schematics and layout files, MicroBuilder has written a full software library for the LPC1300 family. This allows you to quickly get started with all on-board peripherals, so you can focus on your own application functionality. The software library includes complete GCC-based startup code and details on setting up an ARM development environment using open source tools. Along with a standard Makefile, project files for the open-source CodeLite C/C++ IDE and the commercial GCC-based Crossworks for ARM are provided.

Within minutes, you’ll be using the USB interface for printf() debugging, reading from the analog inputs using analogRead(), tweaking pins without having to look up registers, etc. and best of all no ARM or JTAG programmer is required! The chip comes with a built in USB bootloader that appears as a very small disk drive. To reprogram, simply press the Bootload button and drag your new firmware file into the USB drive that appears. Then press Reset and your code is running. Is that cool or what?

Check it!

  • Power the board via the 2.1mm DC jack (6-12V) or the mini-B USB connector (5V). There’s an onboard 3.3V regulator (LT1113)
  • Debugging LED on pin 2.10 and SWD connectors for programming and debugging
  • Open source toolchain (GPL) and software library (BSD)
  • USB 2.0 HID and Mass Storage support built right into the ROM
  • 32K of flash, 8K of SRAM…running at 72 MHz
  • Built-into-ROM USB bootloader works with any computer and OS
  • Full Speed USB, TTL UART, SPI and I2C interfaces
  • Up to 42 General Purpose I/O (GPIO) pins with configurable pull-up/pull-down resistors
  • 8 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter pins
  • Four general purpose counter/timers with a total of four capture inputs and 13 match outputs
  • Programmable WatchDog Timer (WDT)
  • System tick timer for ez timekeeping
  • LPC1343 datasheet has a lot of information about this chip

We don’t include a power supply, USB cable or proto-board…but we do toss in some bumpers.

In stock and shipping!
