NXP: LPC4357-EVB Development Kit

ARM® Cortex™-M4 and Cortex™-M0 processors based LPC4357-EVB multimedia evaluation kit. The LPC4357-EVB is a high-performance, low-cost solution for developing DSP and MCU applications within a single architecture and development environment.

The LPC4357-EVB is equipped with NXP's dual-core Cortex-M4/M0 based LPC4357microcontroller. The LPC4357 is an ARM Cortex-M4 based microcontroller for embedded applications which include an ARM Cortex-M0 coprocessor. The Cortex-M4 processor combines the benefits of a microcontroller with high-performance digital signal processing features such as single-cycle MAC, Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) techniques, saturating arithmetic, and a floating point unit. The Cortex-M0 coprocessor off-loads many of the data movement and I/O handling duties that can drain the bandwidth of the Cortex-M4 core. TheLPC4357 also includes 1 MB Flash memory, 136 kB of data memory, two High Speed USB 2.0 Host/OTG/Devices, advanced configurable peripherals such as the State Configurable Timer (SCT), Serial General Purpose I/O (SGPIO), and SPI Flash Interface (SPIFI) as well as Ethernet, LCD, an external memory controller and multiple digital and analog peripherals.

Key Applications: Industrial automation, Embedded audio applications, Power management, RFID readers, e-metering, etc.
