Cortex-M0 LPC1200 Xpresso Board

Powered by the smallest, most energy-efficient Cortex-M0 core, the LPC1200 provides compelling solutions for industrial control. The series includes up to 128 KB Flash and 8 KB SRAM

The LPC1200 extends NXPs 32-bit ARM microcontroller continuum and targets a wide range of industrial applications in the areas of factory and home automation, such as white goods, motor control, power conversion and power supplies. It also expands NXPs Cortex-M0 microcontroller offering with a wide range of Flash memory sizes. LPC1200 customers can now choose the exact Flash memory size they need, ranging from 32KB to 128KB in increments of 8KB. The LPC1200 product platform is specifically designed with flexibility and customization in mind, making it particularly suitable for a wide variety of energy-efficient system and power management requirements. For example, in advanced washing machines, the LPC1200 can control the motor systems, handle the user interface, monitor system power consumption, and manage off-board communications in a simple, integrated and energy-efficient solution. Its high current GPIO can directly control TRIACs without the need for external transistors, further reducing footprint and costs.
