Industrial reference design board FDI IRD-LPC1768-DEV

The NXP LPC1768 Cortex-M3 microcontroller based industrial reference design (IRD) is optimized to save development time in typical industrial control applications.

Detailed Description

Its modular format uses a base, core, and application board configuration for added flexibility. The kit is preconfigured to work with Keil uVision3 development environment, and example code for converting your ARM7 application to NXP Cortex-M3 LPC176x microcontroller series devices. Using NXP’s cost effective Cortex-M3 microcontrollers as the basis for each platform means that designers can create competitive, highly differentiated products at a lower overall cost. The application board plugs directly into the base board via a common application connector and software configures the system for plug-and-play operation.
