LPC54102 LPCXpresso board tutorial

Posted on by

Yesterday I received a brand new LPCXpresso54102 evaluation board, and after playing with it for a while and going through the documentation, I thought it could be useful to write down how to set up the environment and work around a few quirks that I found are not completely straightforward.

The board contains the new LPC54012 ultra-low-power dual-core ARM Cortex-M4F/M0+ microcontroller, targeted at always-on sensor-processing applications, that can run up to 100Mhz each core. The main idea is to use the Cortex-M0+ core for sensor listening, data collection and aggregation, and then wake up periodically the Cortex-M4F to perform complex data processing tasks.
