Working in close collaboration with NXP, element14 exclusively presents 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 LPC4357 microcontroller. 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. The LPC4357 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.
The LP4357-EVB can be ordered with an optional resistive touchscreen.
Another type of touchscreens are capacitive touchscreens. Capacitive touchscreens provide a better user experience compared to resistive touchscreens; the screen itself is clearer, the response of the touch input is more accurate while requiring less pressure, and mult-touch gestures (e.g. pinch zooming) are possbile. These kind of displays are becoming more and more standard in many GUI applications.
To enable users of the LPC4357-EVB to benefit from the advantages of capacitive touchscreens, NXP has developed a capacitive-touchscreen addon board. This board can be connected to- and screwed on top of the LPC4357-EVB, effectively connecting the capacitive-touchscreen module (UMSH-8253MD-3T) to the LPC4357-EVB. We have also provided an emWin project which makes use of the capacitive touchscreen. The design files (Eagle schematic and board files, gerbers, BOM and Keil project) can be downloaded at this project page.
