Getting started with LPC1343

hands on experience with LPC1343

The Cortex-M3′s Blueboard LPC1343 is a board featuring a high level of integration in terms of both performance and power usage, and also the price to afford them.

With us the Cortex-M3 exists in two flavors as stamp board and the blueboard for the two end users; the stamp board has an on-board USB JTAG Debugger which makes you don’t need to buy another JTAG Emulator and all the GPIOs are extended for developmental applications. Blueboard is the one which is ideally suitable for training, hobbyist and for developmental purposes where you get all the necessary hardware’s in a single board to test the functionality that ease your learning curve and speed up your program development.

In addition, the software examples accompanied with the kit will be convenient for you to evaluate the functions of the NXP LPC1343 processor and ease your development.

How to use breadboard

Breadboard is a piece of hardware prototype stage for designing and building electronic devices. It allows you to build an electronic circuit without any soldering  instead, you poke your components and wires into the small contact holes arranged in rows and column connected by lines of metal, then you can connect your components together with single strand wires or breadboarding wires to form your circuit.

This is how the holes are interconnected electrically.Breadboard

  • Electrical connection remains same for the (1), (4) and (2), (3).
  • In (1), (4) rows are linked horizontally.
  • In (2), (3) columns are linked vertically.
  • There is no interconnection between (1), (4).
  • There is interconnection between the rows in (1), (4).
  • There is no interconnection between the columns in (2), (3).
  • There is no interconnection between (2), (3).
  • Usually (1), (4) is used for power supply connections as we find many supply points in the circuits.


If you want to make use of the entire row you need to short a jumper wire as shown in the figure belowBreadboard

Example Application: 



  • Current and voltage limits – 100mA, 50V.
  • Contact wear-out – While building circuits make sure the wire pokes into the holes strongly.
