We've been working on making the flagship member of the LPC800 series more accessible to more users than ever before, and are delighted to announce the LPC845 Breakout Board is now available from our distribution partners and also direct from! Setting a new price point for a fully featured, debug enabled platform, this board includes CMSIS-DAP compatible debug and a VCOM port in a very compact yet flexible form factor. Of course it can be used with MCUXpresso IDE, Keil, IAR and other popular tools.


MCUXpresso SDK based examples are available now, and you will have seen some examples of interfacing to MEMS sensors, LDRs, SPI displays and a UART GPS module already on this site, all using commonly available from Adafruit and distributors.


Keen LPC user Kevin Townsend has been working on some other, more complex projects that he's posted on his github and on ... an I2C co-processor for Raspberry Pi and today a fun smart Jenga block. He tells me he has another project one the way next week, so keep a look out for that!


We hope you enjoy this new board and, as always, we love to hear what you think and what you create!
