The LPC11U68 LPCXpresso board with NXP®'s LPC11U68 Arm® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller is designed to make it as easy as possible to get started with your project.
The LPC11U68 LPCXpresso board is the correct development board to use for evaluation of the LPC11E6x devices. All other LPC11Exx devices should use the appropriate LPC11Exx development boards as found on their respective product information pages.
LPCXpresso is a low-cost development platform available from NXP supporting NXP's Arm®-based microcontrollers. The platform is comprised of a simplified Eclipse-based IDE and low-cost target boards which include an attached JTAG debugger. LPCXpresso is an end-to-end solution enabling embedded engineers to develop their applications from initial evaluation to final production.
Note that you may need to install the Link2 drivers before connecting the board on a Windows platform (available on nxp.com). If you have installed LPCScrypt or are using LPCXpresso 7.8 or later then the drivers will already have been installed.
As supplied, (JP1 - no jumper fitted, JP2 – jumper fitted across 1-2, JP3 - no jumper fitted), the built in LPC-Link2 based debug probe works as a plug and play debug probe with the LPCXpresso IDE. The first time you start an LPCXpresso debug session, a compatible debug firmware image is downloaded to the debug probe allowing you the debug the onboard target MCU.
A number of other debug firmware images are available for the built-in debug probe to enable its use with other toolchains. These images are programmed into the flash memory of the LPC43xx MCU used for the debug probe using LPCScrypt
Images available include:
CMSIS-DAP for mbed. For use with mbed, this version of firmware includes mass storage boot (for drag and drop loading of firmware to the target), but does not support trace in the LPCXpresso IDE. Please refer to the Mbed site for the latest firmware image.
