mBed/mBuino question


#1

I have my mBuino boards from Kickstarter. I have played around with them a little. They are pretty slick.

Is the chip “as-is” from NXP or is there firmware that is loaded to support mBed platform?


#2

There is mBed firmware. You can check the code on mBed site.


#3

I guess what I was looking for is the “drag and drop” support in Windows. After some digging and reading it appears that the USB In-System programming is part of the boot ROM of the LPC11U24 from NXP.
So if I understand correctly I could build my own board using the LPC11U24 and develop using mBed right out of the box. Is that correct?


#4

It seems so. I would double check with mBed HDK documentation:
