NXP为LPC系列控制器新设计的集成开发环境,由Code Red 设计,有windows和linux版本。


LPCXpresso's IDE (powered by Code Red) is a highly-integrated software development environment for NXP's LPC microcontrollers, which includes all the tools necessary to develop high-quality software solutions in a timely and cost effective manner. LPCXpresso is based on Eclipse with many LPC-specific enhancements. It also features the latest version of the industry standard GNU tool chain with a proprietary optimized C library providing professional quality tools at low cost. The LPCXpresso IDE can build an executable of any size with full code optimization, and it supports a download limit of 128KB after registration.

Development Boards

The LPCXpresso target boards, jointly developed by NXP, Code Red, and Embedded Artists, include an integrated JTAG debugger, so there's no need for a separate JTAG debug probe. The target portion of the board can connect to expansion boards to provide a variety of interfaces and I/O devices. The on-board JTAG debugger provides a high-speed USB to JTAG/SWD interface to the IDE, and it can be connected to other debug targets such as a customer prototype. Users can also use the LPCXpresso IDE with the Red Probe JTAG adapter from Code Red.

The LPCXpresso Development Board


The JTAG/SWD debugger portion of an LPCXpresso board is called the LPC-Link™. The LPC-Link is equipped with a 10-pin JTAG header, and it seamlessly connects to a target via USB (the USB interface and other debug features are provided by NXP's ARM9 based LPC3154 MCU). Cutting the traces between the LPC-link and the target will make the LPC-Link a stand-alone JTAG debugger. This enables the LPCXpresso platform to be connected to an external target and used to develop for a wide variety of NXP's Cortex-M0, Cortex-M3, and ARM7/9 based applications.
