element14 has revealed the exclusive availability of the dual-core NXP LPC4357-EVB board. According to the companies, the media development board is a low-cost, media device geared for development of embedded applications. The low-cost board is based on the ARM Cortex-M4 architecture and boasts media-friendly peripheral features, added the firms.

The NXP LPC4357-EVB development board is priced at less than $100 and is built around the NXP LPC4357 that delivers a versatile dual-core configuration using an ARM Cortex-M4 MCU with an ARM Cortex-M0 as a co-processor. This is the first ARM Cortex board at this price point to deliver dual-core performance and media interface features including 1MB of dual-bank flash, high speed USB host and device, an LCD interface, SD card and more.

The NXP LPC4357-EVB board from element14 features the 256Mb Spansion FL-S quad I/O serial flash memory. The Spansion non-volatile memory product offers high density coupled with the flexibility and fast performance required by embedded multimedia applications. The QSPI Flash is connected to the LPC4357's SPI Flash Interface that allows the M4 or the M0 core to execute from the QSPI or access large tables of data or images.

This development board includes peripherals well-suited for development of multimedia, audio, medical, industrial control and motor control applications and provides ideal rapid prototyping opportunities for hobbyists and game console designers. Features of this board include a three-axis accelerometer, a joystick, an LCD interface for a QVGA LCD module (sold separately), an audio codec and audio jacks, five user input switches and a user LED. Board connectivity features provide two USB ports and serial general purpose I/O (SGPIO) interface. The board also provides a 32MB external SDRAM. Power is provided through USB or by an external 5V DC power supply. The board solution is also supported by application software and firmware drivers for the peripherals.

The NXP LPC4357-EVB board from element14 is available for order immediately and boards will be shipped beginning in December.
