IAR ADK for LPC214

IAR Systems has announced the second product in its recently launched family of development kitsthe IAR Advanced Development Kit (ADK) for LPC2148. This kit is also the first that targets an ARM7 device.

This new ADK has been designed to offer the necessary components for professional product development and debugging on the LPC2148 MCU from NXP. The integrated package offers an suitable entry point for high-level developers, and enables a seamless migration for developers already familiar with NXP MCUs and with the intuitive IAR Embedded Workbench IDE.

The ADK for LPC2148 comprises a BaseLine version of IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, with 512Kbyte code generation capability and support for the LPC2100 family of MCUs from NXP; an IAR Development Board fitted with a LPC2148FBD64 device; an IAR J-Trace ETM/Trace probe with 2Mbyte trace buffer; a trace cable and JTAG USB cable. The availability of trace debugging through ETM offers the benefit of being able to trace bugs that are difficult to detect by other means, and thus speeds the development of more complex applications that are enabled by the ARM7 core.

Commented Joe Yu, marketing director of NXP Semiconductors, "This complete suite of hardware and software tools packaged in a powerful and attractive kit will definitely help developers get up to speed at once and utilize the full capacity of the LPC2148 device. The Advanced Development Kit from IAR Systems with the feature-rich LPC2148 promises a wide range of market-leading embedded products."

The NXP LPC2148 MCU is based on a 32bit ARM7TDMI-S CPU with real-time emulation and embedded trace support and is combined with embedded 512Kbyte high-speed flash memory with ISP/IAP and 10bit ADC and DAC. The compact size and low power consumption of the LPC2148 makes it suitable for miniaturized applications such as access control and POS as well as communications, voice recognition, low-end imaging, industrial control and medical systems. Serial communications interfaces that include a USB 2.0 full-speed device, multiple UARTs, SPI, SSP and I2C-bus are featured. Additional specifications include on-chip SRAM of 40Kbytes, of which 8Kbytes are shared with the USB DMA, PWM channels and 45 fast GPIO lines.

IAR said its ADK family allows the developer ready access to efficient and advanced development methodologies, including trace debugging, without the disadvantage of meeting the cost of each tool component separately.

The ADK-LPC2148-R2T is competitively priced at around $5,320, and is available today from IAR Systems and IAR Systems' sales representatives.
