I have connected and programmed a LPCXpresso11u68 (OM13058) but do not see an associated USB COM port.  Does the LPCXpresso11u68 have this feature?  If so, where is it documented?

Thank you,

Mark

I started with the link on the package for the LPCXpresso11U68 board:  LPC 32-bit Arm-based Microcontrollers|NXP 

This links to processor selection information and no information for this particular board.  Eventually I found a video which showed which USB port to connect.  "Target" or "Link"?  Usually debuggers connect to a target.  Wrong, "Link" is used for debugging.

MCXXpresso could not locate a debugger even with "MCXXpresso IDE LinkServer (inc. CMSIS-DAP) probes) checked.

The Windows 7 Device Manager shows "CMSIS-DAP" by NXP under HID devices.

Eventually I tried the "LPC-Link 2 Configurator Tool" and updated CMSIS-DAP.  It still didn't work.  Then I programmed the Segger J-Link image and MCUXpresso detected it and programming/debugging was possible.  Just no UART access.

It looks like maybe CMSIS-DAP supports a UART but Segger J-Link does not.  Eventually I discovered LPCScrypt v1.8.2 which says that it is the "recommenced" tool for programming the latest versions of CMSIS-DAP and J-Link firmware for LPCXpresso V2/V3 boards (although it does not mention LPC11).  I was able to program the board with CMSIS-DAP.  MCUXpresso still doesn't see the board. 

 

So Plan B is to program with Segger J-Link and solder to the board.

Hi Mark Johnson,
Thanks for your reply.
In my testing, the LPCXpresso11U68 board is able to be enumerated as a HID+CDC composite device no matter be programmed with CMSIS-DAP or J-Link firmware when it connects the PC host.

Hi Mark Johnson,
Thank you for your interest in NXP Semiconductor products and for the opportunity to serve you.
Before answering your question, I was wondering if you can introduce the testing process, it can help me to figure it out.

Have a great day,

TIC
