LPC Solutions: Applications-in-a-box solutions

Simplify Design, Reduce Time-to-Market, and Lower your Risk!

Need a head start on design? Our complete “application-in-a-box” solutions provide proof of concept for MCU-based applications, reduce programming and testing, and get you from evaluation to final product design faster than ever.

The LPC microcontrollers ecosystem

We get you up and developing in minutes, not hours, and on world-class development platforms. The LPC software ecosystem offers advanced yet low-cost ways to evaluate and develop with LPC MCUs and, because the entire Cortex-M portfolio works with a single MCU toolchain, you can use a familiar set of tools no matter which LPC family you choose. Our software libraries, in combination with world class solutions from our software and hardware platform partners, save you time and free you to focus your attention on what sets your product apart.

Development tools

Toolchains are the cornerstone of MCU software development, and we recognize that one size does not fit all needs. NXP’s tool offerings are complemented by our third-party partnerships to help us tailor our offerings for specific applications, so you always get the best options for developing and debugging software on your chosen LPC MCU.

LPCOpen software platform

LPCOpen is a comprehensive set of RTOS-agnostic, LPC family-specific libraries that give software developers quick access to key product features. It includes chip- and board-level device drivers, plus protocol stacks for TCP/IP (LWIP) and USB devices and hosts. Two graphics libraries (SWIM and SEGGER emWin), let you choose to minimize footprint or implement full-featured graphics. Available as a free download from, LPCOpen includes examples using FreeRTOS and Micrium μCOS-III for most devices, and lets you build common APIs with Keil, IAR, and LPCXpresso toolchains.

With over 1,000 active members and hundreds of useful threads, LPCware is THE place to find resources and connect with other LPC designers. This technical site includes tutorials, software and driver packages, schematics, tools, FAQs, tips, and more. Connect and collaborate with other LPC developers today at

Third party partners

We also work with middleware solution providers, building on our powerful LPCOpen software platform to integrate their code and create highly optimized and differentiated design solutions. That gives you more ways to save time, so you can focus on the features that set your product apart.

Development Tools - Continued


The mbed platform provides free software libraries, hardware designs, and online tools for professional rapid prototyping of products based on ARM microcontrollers. The platform includes a standardsbased C/C++ SDK, a microcontroller HDK with supported development boards, an online compiler, and online developer collaboration tools. NXP and ARM partnered to introduce the first mbed board based on the LPC1768, and the portfolio now includes options for the LPC11U24, LPC800, and LPC1114, along with an ever-growing list of application-specific offerings from our third-party partners. Visit for more information.

LPCXpresso IDE

This powerful, highly-integrated software development environment provides everything needed to develop high-quality applications. Building on its Eclipse foundation, the free edition of LPCXpresso adds many enhancements that simplify development. It features the industry-standard GNU toolchain, and lets you use a proprietary C library based on the standard Newlib library. The Pro edition supports unlimited code downloads and includes one year of email-based support from our own LPCXpresso experts.

LPCXpresso development boards

Designed for rapid prototyping and evaluation, these inexpensive boards work with the LPCXpresso IDE. Debug can be done using the integrated probe or an external one, and each board can act as a debug probe for other targets. The latest LPCXpresso boards include Arduino Uno and Pmod™ connectors and free pads for easy prototyping.

LPC-Link2 debug probes

LPC-Link 2 is an extensive, standalone debug probe that is pre-programmed to support LPCXpresso. Using a variety of downloadable firmware images, including SEGGER J-Link and CMSIS-DAP by ARM, it works with development tools and IDEs from Keil, IAR, and others. As part of the LabTool kit, available from Embedded Artists, and add-on board turns LPC-Link 2 into an oscilloscope or a logic analyzer.
