    128 MB NAND Flash plus 4 MB NOR Flash
  • External RAM
    32 MB SDRAM
    256 Kbit
  • Crystals
    12.0000 MHz for MCU, CAN and USB
    32.768 kHz for Real-Time Clock
  • 100/10M Ethernet
     National DP83848 Ethernet PHY/ transceiver
  • Backup Power
    0.3F capacitor
  • Joystick
  • Accelerometer
  • Pushbuttons
    5 plus Reset

The connectors on the MCB2470 evaluation board set provide easy access to many of the LPC2478's on-chip peripherals.

  • Color QVGA LCD with Touchscreen
    A 320x240 TFT LCD color VGA display module with built-in touchscreen is accessible via 18-bit RGB interface.
  • Serial Port
    A standard DB9 connector is on the MCB2470 board for the LPC2478's built-in UART interfaces. Your application may use this full duplex, serial port, if required.
  • CAN Port
    A 5-pin connector is on the MCB2470 board for dual CAN communications.
  • 100/10M Ethernet Port
    A standard RJ45 connector on the MCB2470 base board connects to the Ethernet transceiver on the OEM board for applications requiring Ethernet communications.
  • USB Ports
    Standard USB connectors for USB Device, USB-OTG, USB Host and UART via USB on the MCB2470 board for applications requiring USB communications.
  • Amplifier and Speaker
    An amplifier with volume control on the MCB2470 connects the D/A output of the LPC2478 device to a speaker. You may use this amplifier to generate sound.
  • Analog Voltage Control for ADC Input
    An adjustable analog voltage source is on the MCB2470 board for testing the Analog to Digital output feature of the LPC2478.
  • SD/MMC Card Connector
    An SD/MMC Card connector for developing applications requiring access to SD/MMC Cards.
  • ETM Trace Debug
    Provision for a Mictor-38 ETM connector for on-chip debugging via the Embedded Trace Macrocell capabilities of the LPC2478 device.
  • JTAG Download and Debug
    A JTAG interface is on the MCB2470 board and, coupled with the ULINK USB-JTAG adapter, allows flash programming. The on-chip debug interface can perform real-time in-circuit emulation of the LPC2478 device. For fast PC communication, use your PC's USB port.
