Embedded Artists' LPC11U35 QuickStart Board lets you get up-and-running quickly with NXP's Cortex-M0 LPC11U35 microcontroller. The small sized board offers many features that ease your learning curve and speed up your program development.
Download code to the board by using:
The USB-ISP mode where the board will enumerate as a USB Mass storage device on a Windows PC. Just copy the compiled binary file to the storage device.
Use the free LPCXpresso IDE/Debugger together with, for example, an LPC-Link, a 10-pos IDC Ribbon cable and connect to the SWD interface (10-pin JTAG connector) on the board, see figure below. This allows you to both download and debug code on the board.
Use a debugger and JTAG adapter of your choice which supports the Cortex-M0 ARM core and more specifically the NXP LPC11U35 microcontroller. You might need an adapter such as the 10-pin to 20-pin JTAG Adapter Kit between your JTAG solution and the target board.
The LPC11U35 QuickStart Board is an mbed Platform- meaning that the board take full advantage of the mbed platform!
What is mbed?
The mbed Software Development Kit (SDK), which is an open source C/C++ microcontroller software platform designed for a suitable level of hardware abstraction to simplify microcontroller programming.
The mbed Compiler is a powerful online IDE that is tightly integrated with the mbed SDK and Developer's Website (mbed.org, see below).
The mbed Hardware Development Kit (HDK), which is an interface design that provides simple USB drag-n-drop programming and CMSIS-DAP debug interface for the microcontroller. Note that the HDK is not fully implemented on this board. Only the USB drag-n-drop programming is implemented.
The mbed.org community, with extensive documentation in the form of handbooks, cookbooks, project pages, User Forums for getting help and advice from other mbed users, etc.
Some mbed information:
mbed.org website - this is the official mbed community website. It contains a lot of documentation with many different topics and angles on the information.
Explore mbed - a four segment presentation of the mbed platform: Explore - Getting Started - Prototype - Production
Handbook - gives an overview of the platform with all features.
Cookbook - a wiki for publishing user-controbuted libraries and resources.
