Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the SWD/JTAG interface (J8/J10) on the LPCXpresso Base Board?

It is possible to use J8/J10 but it is unsupported.

Page 4 of the schematic contains components that are not normally mounted. The design has the possibility to create a standalone LPCXpresso base board with integrated MCU (LPC1343), instead of always having to connect a LPCXpresso target board to the base board. J8/J10 was added for this purpose. It is however also possible to remove the LPC-Link side of the LPCXpresso target board and solder J8 and/or J10 to the base board to get a standard SWD/JTAG interface.

Please note that it is NOT possible to use J8/J10 with the LPC1769 LPCXpresso Board (EA-XPR-003) since the SWD/JTAG signals are not available on the expansion connector.
