NXP extends links to LPCXpresso ecosystem with LPC-link 2

Apr 25, 2013

NXP Semiconductors today introduced LPC-Link 2 – the first standalone debug adapter of its kind, which can link a variety of popular IDEs (integrated development environments) to any microcontroller development board. The LPCXpresso-IDE, developed by Code Red Technologies, works out of the box with LPC-Link 2. In addition, several firmware images are available for LPC-Link 2 which make it compatible with other tools, including the popular SEGGER J-Link and the CMSIS-DAP debugger designed by ARM.

"LPC-Link 2 provides embedded developers with unprecedented flexibility and choice, enabling them to connect their favorite IDEs and development tools to nearly any type of board, at a very low cost," said Henrik Flodell, tools and embedded ecosystem manager, microcontroller business line, . "With close to 100,000 LPCXpresso boards shipped so far, we're very excited about the introduction of LPC-Link 2 and how it will help to expand the LPCXpresso ecosystem even further."

Firmware images of SEGGER J-Link and the CMSIS-DAP debugger can be downloaded for free from LPCware.com and loaded via a user-friendly DFU (device firmware update) tool. The LPC-Link2 is powered by an NXP LPC4300 series microcontroller, and includes a standard 10-pin JTAG/SWD connector; a 20-pin JTAG/SWD/ETM connector; and analog, digital and serial expansion headers, making it a highly extensible platform.

"The J-Link emulator has become a de-facto standard when it comes to debug technology for . With more than 100,000 J-Links sold to date, its broad platform support and popularity make it an ideal companion for the LPC-Link 2 platform," said Rolf Segger, of SEGGER. "The J-Link software provides exceptionally fast flash download speeds, and also allows LPC-Link 2 to be used with any major tool chain, including free GDB-based ones. It is fun to work with."

The LPC-Link2 is available for ordering immediately from NXP as OM13054 for a recommended price of $20.00. NXP will also discuss the LPC-Link2 in a technical session at DESIGN West 2013, "Kickstarting your NXP embedded development with LPCXpresso," which takes place on Thursday, April 25 at 11:45 am Pacific Time in booth no. 1523.
