LPCXpresso Motor Control Kit

Note: This product is replaced by the LPC1549 LPCXpresso Motor Control Kit.

The LPCXpresso Motor Control Kit makes it possible for you to get started with motor control prototyping immediately.
It is a platform for low voltage motor control based on NXP’s MCUs. With this universal platform it is possible to control BLDC, BLAC, stepper and dual brushed DC motors.

This kit has been jointly developed with NXP.

This kit is compatible with LPCXpresso LPC1114 (included in kit), LPCXpresso LPC11C24, LPCXpresso LPC1343 and LPCXpresso LPC176x. It is not compatible with mbed.
