Embedded Artists' LPC4088 Experiment Base Board makes it possible to get up-and-running quickly with the LPC4088 QuickStart Board. This base board adds several expansion connectors to the LPC4088 QuickStart Board and makes it especially easy to connect displays to the board.

mbedmbed Enabled The LPC4088 QuickStart Board is mbed Enabled- meaning that the board take full advantage of the mbed platform! The LPC4088 QuickStart Board is the most advanced mbed enabled board to date - it is the most integrated, has most memory, has graphical possibilties and high speed!

LPCOpen LPCOpen is a extensive number of libraries created by NXP to give a quick start. The platform uses common APIs that work equally across all NXP microcontroller families. It supports the common development tool chains; uVision from Keil/ARM, Embedded Workbench from IAR, and LPCXpresso IDE from NXP.Embedded Artists has created an LPCOpen port for the LPC4088 QuickStart Board.

There is a core driver library containing three important sections:


  • Chip Driver Layer - Peripheral drivers for the microcontroller
  • Board Layer - Board specific functions and low level setup code
  • Examples - Chip family specific examples for peripherals, interfaces and libraries.

LPCOpen also contains some important larger program packages/libraries, like FreeRTOS, LWIP (TCP/IP stack), USB driver and graphical library - all together with bigger project examples.
