mbed LPC1768 board


The mbed LPC1768 is based on the NXP LPC1768, with a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 core running at 96MHz. It includes 512KB FLASH, 32KB RAM and lots of interfaces including built-in Ethernet, USB Host and Device, CAN, SPI, I2C, ADC, DAC, PWM and other I/O interfaces. The pinout above shows the commonly used interfaces and their locations. Note that all the numbered pins (p5-p30) can also be used as DigitalIn and DigitalOut interfaces. Here is the pinout of this board

The development process is simple you just need to visit https://developer.mbed.org and sign up, there is an online compiler in which you can create new projects. There are many nice features of the compiler so don’t be fooled into thinking becaus eit is online that is not powerful, I like the ability to search through many libraries and code exampels and easily import these into your projects. The compiler supports many other boards.

You compile and build your code and a bin file is created, if you have your mbed LPC1768 connected you will see this as a drive on your pc, drag the bin file into this and that will be uploaded to your board.
