Simple and low cost USB programmer for NXP LPC series ARM processors and P89V51 series controllers. This little USB programmer for LPC and P89Vxx micros works with the free FlashMagic programming software utility and allows you to program the micro's internal Flash via your PC's USB port.
NXP ARM-core based LPC series microcontrollers and 8051-core based P89Vxx microcontrollers ship from the factory with an integrated bootloader that allows programming of the chip's internal Flash memory via the chip's integrated UART serial interface using the free FlashMagic programming software utility.
Traditionally the connection from the microcontroller's UART to a PC required a RS232 transceiver on the target board and a physical RS232 serial port on the PC side for this type of programming. As more and more PCs ship without RS232 port, a new solution is required: Meet our new USB-to-Serial programmer specifically designed for this task. This low cost programmer for LPC and P89V51 series microcontrollers plugs into a PC's USB port. The USB driver installs a virtual COM port on your PC, so the device looks to the FlashMagic software like a physical RS232 port. The programmer's FTDI USB-to-serial chip takes the data it receives via the PC USB connection and converts it back to serial UART TTL levels. Integrated level shifters assure that the programming signals are at the same level as your specific target microcontroller's operating voltage. The level shifted signals can directly be connected to the microcontroller's integrated UART and ISP mode pins - no RS232 transceiver required. The board features a male header connection for (target) Vcc, GND, RX, TX, RST (switch to ISP mode for P89Vxx micros) and PO14 (ISP mode for LPC programming). Connect those pins to the appropriate pins on your microcontroller target and you're ready to program. See the user manual below for further details.
