2,250.00 2,000.00


  • An on-board NXP’s LPC2148 microcontroller with ARM7 architecture.
  • A power jack for an external power supply from 8 to 16V AC/DC.
  • Alternatively the board can be powered through the on-board USB connector.
  • A 16×2 Character LCD interface operating in 4-bit mode. A potentiometer to vary the contrast of Character LCD.
  • A 3.5mm audio jack to connect the D/A output of microcontroller to a speaker or headphones.
  • Standard JTAG connector to support programming/debugging of LPC2148 microcontroller.
  • An on-board crystal of 12MHz to clock the microcontroller to up to 60MHz with internal PLL.
  • A push button to hardware reset the MCU.
  • A push button used in combination with RESET button to enter ISP mode.
  • On-board buzzer with selectable input to generate various audio frequencies.
  • Two DB9 connectors to implement RS232 communication using the on-chip UART0 and UART1.
  • An on-board crystal of 32.768kHz and a battery backup for on-chip Real time Clock.
  • A socket to plug-in Digi’s 2.4GHz XBEE RF transceiver.
  • Four Push Buttons to provide digital input to selected GPIO pins of the microcontroller.
  • Eight on-board user programmable LEDs on selected GPIO pins with an option to disable them using a jumper.
  • A connector for 4×4 Keypad interface.
  • A connector to plug-in distance measurement sensors such as PING Ultrasonic Sensors.
  • An I2C based EEPROM.
  • The microcontroller can be programmed using the on-chip serial bootloader using the RS232-0 port.
  • A socket to plug-in SPI based 3-axis accelerometer.
  • Variable Analog Input using potentiometer using one of the three user selectable channels.
  • Socket for interfacing temperature sensor such as LM35.
  • On-board USB connector interfaced to on-chip USB peripheral of LPC2148 for USB based communication.
  • A Breakout for all the pins present on the microcontroller.
  • A Well-documented top and bottom side for easy hardware troubleshooting.

The development board can be powered using the mini-USB connector on-board, hence removing the need for additional external power adapter.
You need a serial port on your workstation to flash the microcontroller. Most of the Laptops today do not come with a serial port. You can use a USB-Serial Converter in this case.
