Software Platform and Development Tools

A comprehensive software platform has been created for the LPC4088 Display Module.

The on-board debug interface allows you to get started immediately with program development.

Free on-line mbed-compiler, free LPCXpresso IDE or Keil/ARM uVision IDE can be used for program development.

Three different graphical packages can be used:

  • SWIM - a free and simple framework from NXP.
  • TouchGFX - enabled modern, Smartphone look-and-feel user interfaces on resource-limited embedded systems. 
  • emWin - a high-performance library with a free version for NXP microcontrollers.

mbedmbed Enabled

The LPC4088 Display Module is mbed enabled - meaning that the board takes full advantage of the mbed framework.

  • The mbed Software Development Kit (SDK), which is an open source C/C++ microcontroller software platform designed for a suitable level of hardware abstraction to simplify MCU programming.
  • The mbed Compiler is a online IDE that is tightly integrated with the mbed SDK and Developer's Website (develop.mbed.org, see below).
  • The mbed Hardware Development Kit (HDK), which is an interface design that provides simple USB drag-n-drop programming and CMSIS-DAP debug interface for the LPC4088 microcontroller.
  • The mbed.org community, with extensive documentation in the form of handbooks, cookbooks, project pages, User Forums for getting help and advice from other mbed users, etc.
