LPCXpresso™ Board for the LPC54100 family of MCUs

The LPCXpresso family of boards provides a powerful and flexible development system for NXP's Cortex-M MCUs. The LPCXpresso54102 board with NXP's LPC54102 low power microcontroller is designed to make it as easy as possible to get started with your project.

LPCXpresso™ is a low-cost development platform available from NXP supporting NXP's ARM-based microcontrollers. The platform is comprised of a simplified Eclipse-based IDE and low-cost target boards which include an on-board debug probe. LPCXpresso is an end-to-end solution enabling embedded engineers to develop their applications from initial evaluation to final production.

The LPCXpresso54102 on-board debug probe’s flash memory is pre-programmed to support the CMSIS-DAP protocol, or can be configured for DFU boot to use the Redlink protocol (optimized for LPCXpresso IDE). Alternatively, an external debug probe such as LPC-Link2 can be used by simply connecting it to the board via the P1 connector and powering the board via the secondary usb connector. The LPCXpresso54102 board can be used with development tools from NXP partners including Atollic, Keil, IAR, Mentor Graphics and Rowley using the CMSIS-DAP protocol option. Refer to our partners for details on using their tools with the board.

LPCXpresso54102 is fully supported by the free LPCOpen Software Development Platform for NXP Microcontrollers, which provides drivers and examples in source code for rapid product development.
