The Low-power Application Kit (Oryx) with NXP's LPC11U37 ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller has been designed to make it as easy as possible to get started with Cortex-M0 and low-power designs.
The board demonstrates low-power design techniques both in hardware and software. Includes an extensive user's manual and many sample applications.
The LPC11U37 has 10 kB SRAM, 128 kB Flash, 4 kB E2PROM, USB 2.0 Full-Speed Device, SSP, I2C, UART, ADC, etc.
On-board embedded debug interface, powered by LPCXpresso technology. LPCXpresso is a low-cost development toolchain available from NXP. The toolchain supports ARM-based LPC microcontrollers and includes a free Eclipse-based IDE and low-cost target boards combined with a JTAG debugger. Designed for simplicity and ease of use, the LPCXpresso technology provides software engineers a quick and easy way to develop their applications from initial evaluation to final production.
This board is an enhancement of the Oryx Board - Ultra Low-Power Reference Design for Mobile Applications from Arrow. Developed in close cooperation with NXP and Arrow.
The Oryx is one of four large antelope species. It prefer near-desert conditions and can survive without water for long periods - very low-power operation... just like this kit!
Even in full operating mode, the Low-power Application Kit (Oryx) consumes only 42mW (3.0V, 14mA) and as low as 20uW (3.0V, 6.6uA) in power-down mode.
There are multiple possibilities to control the power consumption of the board.
