The LPC812 MAX Board combines the features of the LPCXpresso, mbed, and Arduino environments. The board is designed in partnership with mbed and developed by Embedded Artists.

The board is an easy to use ARM Cortex-M0+ rapid prototyping board that bring together the best of three platforms:

  • LPCXpresso support - The LPCXpresso IDE support programming and debugging the board using the on-board CMSIS-DAP interface, no LPC-Link is needed. The LPCXpresso connector on the board is compatible with existing baseboards.
  • mbed support - When connected to a PC, the board will show up as a mass-storage device. Firmware images placed on it will be written to the LPC812 after a power cycle, same as today's mbed boards. The board will also show up as a CMSIS-DAP compatible device allowing users to develop and debug code using any compatible €off-line€ toolchain, such as the ARM-MDK. The mbed SDK has been ported to the board, and it is supported by the on-line compiler.
  • Arduino support - Arduino is a popular hobbyist platform, with a standardised set of expansion connectors. The Arduino connectors on the LPC812 MAX board are compatible with the Arduino Uno pin out for compatible shields.
