How to use LPC-LINK2

I’m gonna show you how to use LPC-LINK2. The LPC-LINK2 is a very handy tool because it can be used as various debug probe, being very cost effective. The license is only allowed to use for NXP MCU’s, Kinetis and LPC microcontroller. If you have already bought it but you don’t make use of it to the full extent, you can refer to this post. There might be an useful information for you.

Very Easy and useful! Power debug on MCUXpresso IDE

It has past a quite a long time since the last post, but I finally got time so I post a new article. This time, I introduce an unique feature, which is a power debugging on MCUXpresso IDE. The power debug doesn’t give you a powerful debugging, but you can monitor a dynamic power consumption and it is visualized on MCUXpresso window.

Printf debug and Semihosting on LPC

This time, I would like to introduce tips and settings about printf debug as a handy method for debugging. Printf debug is the debug using the printf() function, and whether variables are expected values, code execution, conditional branching, etc. are working properly, or not. And, It helps to visualize the log of the code execution etc. as a dynamic state of the code to output to a standard output (display etc) for debug.
