LPCLink2 Standalone Debug Probe
LPC-Link 2 is an extensible, stand-alone debug adapter that can be configured to support various development tools and IDEs by downloadable firmwares.
Available firmware images include:
- LPCXpresso IDE debugger by NXP
- CMSIS-DAP by ARM
The board is supported by the LPCXpresso IDE and all development environments that supports the J-Link and CMSIS-DAP interface.
This product is delivered with a 10-pos IDC Ribbon Cable. Note that an adapter is needed to connect to the older 2x10-pos 100 mil pitch ARM debug connectors.
LPC-Link 2 is the latest addition to the LPCXpresso development platform.
Note that LPC-Link 2 firmware in combination with the LPCXpresso IDE supports the Cortex-Mx cores in the LPC family, but not the older ARM7/ARM9 cores.
|SWD/JTAG interface voltage||1.2V - 5.5V supported|
|Dimensions||84 x 37 mm|
|Powering||Via USB cable from PC|
|Connectors||• standard 10-pin Cortex debug connector (note: 50 mil pitch connector)
• 20-pin Cortex trace connector (note: 50 mil pitch connector)

Making Embedded Systems: Design Patterns for Great Software
by Elecia White
Interested in developing embedded systems? Since they don't tolerate inefficiency, these systems require a disciplined approach to programming. This easy-to-read guide helps you cultivate a host of good development practices, based on classic software design patterns and new patterns unique to embedded programming. Learn how to build system architecture for processors, not operating systems, and discover specific techniques for dealing with hardware difficulties and manufacturing requirements.
Written by an expert who's created embedded systems ranging from urban surveillance and DNA scanners to children's toys, this book is ideal for intermediate and experienced programmers, no matter what platform you use.
- Optimize your system to reduce cost and increase performance
- Develop an architecture that makes your software robust in resource-constrained environments
- Explore sensors, motors, and other I/O devices
- Do more with less: reduce RAM consumption, code space, processor cycles, and power consumption
- Learn how to update embedded code directly in the processor
- Discover how to implement complex mathematics on small processors
- Understand what interviewers look for when you apply for an embedded systems job
At DESIGN West 2013, NXP is introducing LPC-Link 2 -- the first standalone debug adapter of its kind, which can link a variety of popular IDEs (integrated development environments) to any microcontroller development board. The LPCXpresso-IDE, developed by Code Red Technologies, works out of the box with LPC-Link 2. In addition, several firmware images are available for LPC-Link 2 which make it compatible with other tools, including the popular SEGGER J-Link and the CMSIS-DAP debugger designed by ARM.
