We have three of the new devboards as prizes, thanks to Farnell element14, which are worth £17 each. Enter the compo »
The boards are aimed at NFC-related prototyping – for applications such as smart home gateways, motion control, wearables and robotics – and the LPC8N04 requires a minimal number of external components.
The LPC8N04 contains multiple features, including multiple power-down modes and a selectable CPU frequency of up to 8MHz, for ultra-low power consumption.
- Arm Cortex-M0+ core running up to 8 MHz
- Nested Vectored Interrupt Controller (NVIC)
- Arm Serial Wire Debug (SWD)
- 32 kB flash, 8 kB SRAM, 4 kB on-chip EEPROM
- Up to 12 General-Purpose I/O (GPIO)
- Programmable Watchdog Timer (WDT)
- Real-Time Clock (RTC) Timer
- NFC/RFID ISO 14443 type A interface
- Serial I2C-bus supporting full I2C-bus specification and Fast-mode with a data rate of 400 kbit/s
- SPI/SSP interface
- The LPC8N04 can also be powered from the NFC field
- Activation via NFC
- Temperature sensor with +/- 1.5°C accuracy from – 40°C to 85°C
- Compatible with MCUXpresso IDE and other popular toolchains (incl. IAR and Keil)
The closing date is 30 April 2018. Note, also, that you do have to supply some details to Farnell element14 to enter the prize draw.
