Embedded Artists LPCXpresso Developer's Kit

LPCXpresso Development PlatformThe LPCXpresso Development Platform is an embedded platform that is primarily focused on delivering highly deterministic real-time behavior in a wide range of power sensitive applications. The platform is optimized for cost sensitive MCU and mixed-signal devices.

The platform allows the insertion of the NXP LPC11xx, based on the ARM Cortex-M0 processor, the smallest, lowest power and most energy-efficient ARM processor available. The small silicon area, low power and minimal code footprint of the processor enables us to achieve 32 bits performance at an 8 bits price point, bypassing the 16 bits devices.


The applications of this platform include:

  • Automotive Control Systems.
  • Motor Control Systems.
  • White Goods market.
  • Wireless and Wired Sensor Networks.
  • Mass Storage Controllers.
  • Printers.
  • Network Devices.
  • Smart metering.
  • Human interface devices.
  • Industrial control.
  • Consumer products.
  • Medical instrumentation.

The platform is also capable to handle the NXP LPC13xx and NXP LPC 17xx an ARM Cortex-M3 processor based on the set instruction compatibly and the common pin out offered by some of the silicon manufacturers. The ARM Cortex-M3 is the industry-leading 32 bits processor for high deterministic real-time applications and has been created to develop high-performance low-cost platform.
