LPC900 Programmer

The LPC900 family is the Swiss Army knife of 8051-compatible microcontrollers. The ‘LPC’ in the part number stands for ‘low pin count’: the NXP (formerly Philips) LPC900 family consists of a range of small and easy-to-use microcontrollers ideal for small-scale high-speed applications. Since the LPC900 family is based on an 8051 core it is easy to learn how to use the devices. However, the LPC900 is more than just a slightly spruced-up version of the 8051.
