Future Seminar in a Box featuring LPC4088

Future Electronics has brought together a series of complete evaluation solutions based on NXP Semiconductors’ most popular microcontrollers. Each ‘Seminar in a Box’ includes an MCU evaluation board, product data sheet, and technology presentations with links to LPCWARE to provide access to NXP’s software libraries.

The LPC4088 Experiment Base Board with NXP's LPC4088 microcontroller is designed to make it as easy as possible to get started with your project and get up-and-running quickly with the LPC4088 QuickStart Board. This base board adds several expansion connectors to the LPC4088 QuickStart Board and makes it especially easy to connect displays to the board.
