LPCXpresso18S37 Development Board

The LPCXpresso family of boards provides a powerful and flexible development system for NXP's Cortex-M MCUs.

The LPCXpresso18S37 board has been developed by NXP to enable evaluation of and prototyping with the LPC4300 family of MCUs, and features the LPC18S37 in its 100 PIN BGA package option.

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 attached SWD debugger. LPCXpresso is an end-to-end solution enabling embedded engineers to develop their applications from initial evaluation to final production.

LPCXpresso IDE supports programming and debugging LPCXpresso boards using the on-board CMSIS-DAP debug interface, or with an external debug probe such as LPC-Link2. LPCXpresso18S37 is ready for use with the LPCXpresso IDE. An external debug probe can be used by simply connecting it to the board via the P1 connector and powering the board via the J3 USB connection
