LPC810_CodeBase

LPC810 driving a MAX7221 and a dual color matrix [1] The software can receive a string from the serial port (230400,n,8,1): Fields structure 0 1 <payload[32],m> where m can be: m -> a single ASCII character that can be: 1: payload is a string, max 32 char, to show using the RED matrix 2: same as opz. 1 but to show using the GREEN one 3: the first character inside the payload is the index of a preloaded figure, (see max7221_graph.h) the second character is the color: red o green. 4: using this option, you can send a custom figure. The payload is 17 byte. The first 16 bytes are the ASCII version of the 8bit to show. The last byte the color. 5: put the MCU and MAX7221 in deepsleep. payload[32] -> the string to show or the custom figure.

Open source code base for the ARM Cortex M0+ LPC810 family from NXP.

This code base is intended to work with the LPC810 in a DIP8 package.
While these drivers are based on the original LPC800 example code from NXP, the LPC810 has limited resources (4KB flash and 1KB SRAM), so smaller, lighter-weight drivers had to be written to get the most out of these resources we have.

The current code implements the following peripheral drivers:

  • A basic SPI driver
  • Some simple GPIO helper functions (although GPIO should normally be accessed directly via the appropriate registers)
  • A simple driver for UART0 and printf-redirection that allows 'printf' output to be transmitted to UART0
  • A basic multi-rate timer driver that allows us to set delays

The code base also implements a mini printf that takes up much less space than the default printf used in most libc variants. If necessary, it's easy to change the printf redirection to a location other than UART0 via the printf-redirection.c file.
