Testing the Nuvoton NuTiny-SDK-M0564 – development tool for the M0564 series microcontroller.
The M0564VG4AE is a Cortex-M0 microcontroller which can run at up to 72MHz, features 85 I/O pins, 256 KB Flash, 20 KB SRAM, 4KB ISP ROM and 2 KB SPROM(Security Protection ROM).
The 161 pages datasheet can be downloaded from here: http://www.nuvoton.com/resource-files/DS_M0564_Series_EN_Rev1.00.pdf
The whole Development Package can be downloaded from http://nuvoton.com/NuMicroDVD/
The archive contains some useful AppNotes, drivers for Keil and IAR, CooCox BSP, Datasheets and some useful stand-alone programs like ClockConfigure Tool, NuMicro PLL Generator Tool.
The next steps are: install and configure Keil, add packs, CMSIS… etc.
For Arduino Fans there is a NuMaker Uno Board based on NUC131 – another Cortex M0 ARM – https://direct.nuvoton.com/it/numaker-uno
LPC800 series develeopment tool
It’s amazing. Simple and efficient.
The small pin number is compensated in a great way: The Switch Matrix – it connects 6 pins to any available internal module.
Of course, programming can be done in bootloader mode, where every pin is reassigned according to the original layout.
- ARM Cortex-M0+
- Switch matrix for flexible configuration of each I/O pin function
- 2 USART interfaces, 1 SPI controller and 1 I²C-bus, with pin functions assigned through the switch matrix
- Self Wake-up Timer (WKT) clocked from either the IRC or a low-power, low-frequency internal oscillator
- CRC engine
- Boot ROM API support: boot loader, USART and I²C drivers in ROM, power profiles, Flash In-Application Programming (IAP) and In-System Programming (ISP)
The debugging options supported are SWD (10 pin connector), JTAG boundary scan and Micro Trace Buffer (MTB).
The quickest/cheapest programming method is via
spi*ISP (6 pin connector) with a USB/Serial cable.

The mbed Comes in two flavors: CortexM3(NXP LPC1768) and CortexM0(NXP LPC11U24).
- 1 ethernet port
- 3 serial ports (Rx/Tx)
- 2 SPI ports
- 2 I2C ports
- 6 Analog INs or 5 Analog INs + 1 Analog Out
- 1 CAN Port
- 6 PWM out
- 1 USB port (D+, D-) and the main USB-mini Port as a serial terminal
- 4 blue LEDs
Connected to USB shows up a 2MB FAT-FS storage with a preloaded web page which connects and autenthicates the user to the mbed.org website where resides the Free Online C Compiler and all other help pages, manuals, code examples, community contributed programs and libraries.
