NXP LPCXPRESSO55S69

Overview

The LPCXpresso55S69 development board provides the ideal platform for evaluation of and development with the LPC55S6x MCU based on the Arm® Cortex®-M33 architecture. The board includes a high performance onboard debug probe, audio subsystem, and accelerometer, with several options for adding off-the-shelf add-on boards for networking, sensors, displays, and other interfaces.

Supported Features

The lpcxpresso55s69 board configuration supports the following hardware features:

Interface Controller Driver/Component
NVIC on-chip nested vector interrupt controller
SYSTICK on-chip systick
IOCON on-chip pinmux
GPIO on-chip gpio
USART on-chip serial port-polling

The default configuration file boards/arm/lpcxpresso55s69/lpcxpresso55s69_cpu0_defconfig only enables the first core.

Other hardware features are not currently supported by the port.

Connections and IOs

The LPC55S69 SoC has IOCON registers, which can be used to configure the functionality of a pin.

Name Function Usage
PIO0_29 USART USART RX
PIO0_30 USART USART TX
PIO1_4 GPIO RED LED
PIO1_6 GPIO BLUE_LED
PIO1_7 GPIO GREEN LED

System Clock

The LPC55S69 SoC is configured to use the internal FRO at 96MHz as a source for the system clock. Other sources for the system clock are provided in the SOC, depending on your system requirements.

Serial Port

The LPC55S69 SoC has 8 FLEXCOMM interfaces for serial communication. One is configured as USART for the console and the remaining are not used.

Programming and Debugging

Build and flash applications as usual (see Building an Application and Run an Application for more details).

Configuring a Debug Probe

A debug probe is used for both flashing and debugging the board. This board is configured by default to use the LPC-Link2 CMSIS-DAP Onboard Debug Probe, however the pyOCD Debug Host Tools does not yet support this probe so you must reconfigure the board for one of the following debug probes instead.

Configuring a Console

Connect a USB cable from your PC to P6, and use the serial terminal of your choice (minicom, putty, etc.) with the following settings:

  • Speed: 115200
  • Data: 8 bits
  • Parity: None
  • Stop bits: 1

Flashing

Here is an example for the Hello World application. This example uses the J-Link Debug Host Tools as default.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b lpcxpresso55s69_cpu0 samples/hello_world
west flash

Open a serial terminal, reset the board (press the RESET button), and you should see the following message in the terminal:

***** Booting Zephyr OS v1.14.0 *****
Hello World! lpcxpresso55s69_cpu0

Debugging

Here is an example for the Hello World application. This example uses the J-Link Debug Host Tools as default.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b lpcxpresso55s69_cpu0 samples/hello_world
west debug

Open a serial terminal, step through the application in your debugger, and you should see the following message in the terminal:

***** Booting Zephyr OS zephyr-v1.14.0 *****
Hello World! lpcxpresso55s69_cpu0
