Farnell kindly offered me to test and review the new microcontroller in mbed family, the NXP LPC11U24.

mbed microcontrollers are designed for rapid prototyping:


  • run a microprocessor (ARM Cortex) with all the required components;
  • connect to PC via USB for firmware uploading;
  • have a breadboard friendly shape (DIP win 40 pins).


Since a few weeks, the new model NXP LPC11U24 is available in addition to the older NXP LPC1768 (on the right):

You can find a detailed comparison matrix here.

NXP LPC11U24 has the following hardware features:


  • low power ARM Cortex M0 microprocessor running at 48MHz;
  • 32Kb of flash memory, 8Kb of RAM memory;
  • 30 GPIO;
  • peripherals: 2 SPI, I2C, UART, 6 ADC e USB device.


I received from Farnell the original packaging, which contains:

  • the microcontroller;
  • an USB cable;
  • a card with pins’ description;
  • a sticker;
  • a sheet with “getting started” instructions.
