NXP LPC8xx Low-Power ARM® Cortex®-M0+ Microcontrollers

NXP's LPC800 Series  packs a lot of versatility in a low-power, low pin count, entry-level 32-bit, ARM® Cortex®-M0+ based microcontroller. Operating at CPU frequencies of up to 30MHz, the LPC800 series supports up to 32KB of flash memory and 8KB of SRAM. The peripheral complement of the LPC800 can include a CRC engine, four I2C-bus interfaces, up to three USARTs, up to two SPI interfaces, one multi-rate timer, self-wake-up timer, and state-configurable timer with PWM function (SCTimer/PWM), a DMA, one 12-bit ADC and one analog comparator, function-configurable I/O ports through a switch matrix, an input pattern match engine, and up to 29 general-purpose I/O pins.

New! Embedded Artists LPC812 MAX Experiment Kit has been created as a guided tour to learn embedded programming with the mbed framework and the NXP's LPC800 microcontroller family with Cortex-M0+ cores. The experiments are performed on a breadboard for maximum flexibility and ease of use.

Smartphone Quick-Jack Solution

NXP ARM LPC800 Smartphone Quick-Jack Solution adapts the standard 3.5mm stereo audio jack found on most iOS or Android smart devices into a self-powered data port and provides a universal interface for external sensors, switches, and other external devices. This flexible solution gives both consumer and industrial product designers a simple, plug-and-go way to get data into an endless variety of control, monitoring, data collection, maintenance, medical, and entertainment applications. The Smartphone Quick-Jack Solution includes a small PCB with an NXP LPC812 microcontroller, an energy harvesting IC, a miniature joystick, and an expansion header.

LPC812 is an ARM Cortex M0+ MCU that manages the data transport, encoding/decoding data using the Manchester algorithm to be exchanged over the audio channels. The board's expansion header makes it easy to connect myriad sensors (such as temperature, humidity, wind, heart rate, and accelerometer), switches (lights and power), HMI devices (keyboards and game controllers) or other devices that collect or log data from a variety of sources.

An energy harvesting circuit utilizes the right audio channel to draw power from the smart device to power the Quick-Jack board and attached sensors. The onboard joystick can be used to demonstrate a UI implementation, with results displayed by an application on the connected smartphone or tablet. The supplied example App for Android phones and iPhone displays joystick position and temperature and can turn devices on the Quick-Jack board on and off.
