IAR Systems offers development kit for NXP LPC1227 microcontroller


The IAR KickStart Kit for LPC1227 from IAR Systems includes a development board with an ARM Cortex-M0 based LPC1227 microcontroller, peripherals and connectors, an IAR J-Link Lite debug probe providing SWD debugging, software development tools and board support packages for various RTOSes.

The company believes this to be the world's first commercial starter kit for the ARM Cortex-M0-based LPC1227 microcontroller. Cooperation between NXP and IAR Systems during the development project has led to the IAR Systems starter kit being the first to the market.

Included in the kit is a code size limited version of IAR Embedded Workbench, a set of development tools for building and debugging embedded system applications using assembler, C and C++. It provides a completely integrated development environment that includes a project manager, editor, build tools and the C-SPY debugger.

The kit includes:

  • LPC1227, 64 pin, ARM Cortex-M0
  • IAR J-Link-Lite for ARM debug probe
  • Standard 20-pin JTAG connector and small 9-pin SWD connector
  • Power up the board through J-Link, or external power adapter (not included)
  • Small LCD
  • User button
  • Wake Up button
  • Reset button
  • User LEDs
  • Power LED
  • Analog trim wheel
  • Buzzer
  • Prototyping area (approx 32 x 12 holes)
  • UART routed to DB9 connector
  • UXT connector
  • RoHS compliant

IAR KickStart Kit for LPC1227 is priced at $129 EUR/$169 USD. It can be bought online at www.iar.com/eshop.
