LPC General Purpose Shield

Manufactured By:NXP
LPC General Purpose Shield
Part Number:OM13082

The LPC General Purpose Shield Board has designed to complement NXP’s range of LPCXpresso MCU development boards by providing easy access to several commonly used peripherals. The LPC General Purpose Shield plugs into the top-side expansion connectors of LPCXpresso V2, V3 and MAX boards.


The LPC General Purpose Shield connectors have more pins than are available on LPCXpresso V2 and MAX boards, but may still be used with those boards with some loss of functionality. The I2C and SPI connected devices may be routed to the Arduino UNO connections on a the V2 and MAX boards.
