LPCXpresso Experiment Kit

The LPCXpresso Experiment Kit has been created as a guided tour to learn embedded programming with NXP’s LPC1000 microcontroller family with Cortex-M0/M3 cores from ARM. The experiments can be performed on a breadboard for maximum flexibility and ease of use. It is also possible to solder the components to a printed circuit board (pcb) and learn soldering at the same time.

Working with breadboard experiments or Soldering all componnets to pcb

The kit requires an LPCXpresso LPC1000 board. This must be bought separately. There is a kit bundle available at reduced price (with the LPCXpresso LPC1115 board).

All experiments are based around the LPCXpresso LPC1115 board (LPC1114 board is also ok to use). Some more advanced experiments with Ethernet and USB requires the LPCXpresso LPC1769 board.


The kit is perfect for:

  • professionals that want to learn the LPCXpresso evaluation boards and the LPCXpresso IDE.
  • students and hobbyists that want to learn more about embedded program development and programming microcontrollers.
  • University professors that want to have an education platform. The extensive experiment manual can be used as-is or as a base for developing lecture-tailored experiment.
