Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: None. We will no longer be carrying this board. This page is for reference only.

Description: This is a small 24 pin DIP module with ARM processor (LPC2103) and a built in BASIC compiler. What do you get? A Basic Stamp on steroids. This module is perfect for people who are really wanting to get started with microcontrollers, but like many of us, don't want to be held up by the learning curve associated with many of the more powerful but complex programming environments. The ARMexpress IDE and basic compiler make it quick and easy to interface to the outside world without all the hassle of C compilers and cumbersome IDEs but with all the power of an ARM!

Programming and debugging are done over a serial connection. This is not a TTL connection, but a direct RS232 connection.

Features:

  • Simply Connected Technology
  • ARM7 CPU running at 60 Mhz
  • Programmed via Serial  interface
  • Onboard BASIC compilter runs >10 million lines of codes/sec

  • 16 TTL compatible digital I/O
  • Onboard regulated power supply runs off 7-12V DC input
  • internal supplies of 3.3V and 1.8V
  • Compatable with other DIP24 module pin outs

  • I2C support with 380 Kb transfer rate
  • SHIFT routines for Sync serial busses at 800 Kb rate
  • 1-Wire support
  • Async SERIAL builtin support upto 19.2 Kb
  • Pulse timing and generation with 1 uSec resolution
  • Frequency synthesis to 50 kHz

  • The original ARMexpress used an LPC2106 and had an onboard BASIC compiler. That has since been replaced by compiling on a PC to generate hex files that are downloaded through the serial link.
    So yes the SparkFun description should be updated.

  • Features: Onboard basic [compilter]
    I may have mistyped the same thing
