LPC3250 Developer's Kit v2

Embedded Artists' LPC3250 Developer's Kit lets you get up-and-running quickly with the LPC3250 OEM Board. The LPC3250 OEM Board is equipped with NXP's ARM926EJ-S based LPC3250 microcontroller suitable for applications that require high performance, high integration, and low power consumption.

The Kit is perfect for running Linux with its large on-board RAM and Flash, network and graphics capabilities.

Focus on your value-added application by using this Developer's Kit as your prototyping platform. It includes the software components needed to get up-and-running with your software development on day 1.

When you are finished with prototyping and/or evaluation you can easily transfer your application and the OEM Board into production.

Product Change Note (PCN)


Sample Software Disclaimer

  • NXP's Common Driver Library (CDL) framework has been used to develop a number of sample applications for the LPC3250 OEM Board. The main IDE is Keil's MDK-ARM which is the only one being tested by Embedded Artists. NXP's CDL package also supports CodeSourcery GCC and IAR Embedded Workbench.
  • ADC - an example using interrupts to measure ADC channels 0, 1 and 2
  • Ethernet - A polled Ping application that illustrates the usage of the Ethernet interface
  • Kickstart - A simple bootloader stored in block 0 of the NAND flash loading an application stored in block 1 an onwards.
  • LCD - An application using NXP's SWIM library to draw some color bars on the QVGA LCD display
  • NAND Programmer - This application programs the NAND flash with the kickstart application in block 0 and a second application, for example, the S1L application in block 1 and onwards.
  • RTC An example using the Real-Time Clock to generate TICK events
  • S1L - A more complex bootloader that allows you to load applications from several sources such as the NAND flash, serial port or MMC/SD card.
  • SD/MMC - A sample application using the memory card interface
  • SLC NAND - An application that is using the Single-Level NAND controller to read and write data to the NAND flash.
  • SPI NOR - This application illustrates how to read and write data to the NOR Flash.
  • Timer - A simple example using the timer interface
  • Touch Screen - This application first runs a calibration sequence and then uses NXP's SWIM library to let you draw on the display using the touch screen.
  • UART - A simple example illustrating how to use the UART
