LPC800 series develeopment tool

I just get my hands on this board courtesy of Element14.

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.

LPC810 features:

  • 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.
