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.
