New Products: BR-LPC1347, BR-LPC11U36 and OLED Display
Today we have three new products; two development boards and an OLED display.
BR-LPC1347 and BR-LPC11U36
The BR-LPC1347 and BR-LPC11U36 development boards are based on the same PCB design using the pin-for-pin compatible LPC1347 and LPC11U36. The LPC1347 and LPC11U36 from NXP are based on ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M0 cores respectively.
This compact design is the same size as a 40-pin DIP package. This allows for easy interfacing to your project or prototyping.
LPC1347 Key Features:
- ARM Cortex-M3
- Up to 72MHz operation
- 64kB of Flash
- 8kB of RAM
LPC11U36 Key Features:
- ARM Cortex-M0
- Up to 50MHz operation
- 96kB of Flash
- 10kB of RAM
We have simple blinky demo applications available for both boards and our Introduction to the GNU toolchain for embedded ARM tutorial will help you get started.
0.96" OLED Display
The 0.96" Mono OLED is an excellent low cost and compact mono graphic OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display. The OLED technology gives a very high contrast image and the resolution of 128 x 64 allows for 8 lines of clearly readable text.
The display can be controlled through SPI, I2C or with an 8 bit parallel interface. We have example code for both Raspberry Pi and NXP ARM processors. This code allows you to easily draw text, images and animations on the display. The examples are available from the product page.
When connected to a Raspberry Pi, a large amount of status information can be displayed. For example, current IP address, operating speed and temperature. As this is a graphic display you are not limited to text; images, icons and even animations can be easily drawn.
