Elvis Sightings and the Elusive LPC2138 User Manual

Started by tonalbuilder2002 June 29, 2005
After much digging I found a November, 2004 prelimary LPC2138 User
Manual posted here in the Files section. It looks like it's
just the same old set of Arm peripherals. But I'm starting on a
LPC2138 board design and am feeling a little nervous about
any LPC2138-specific "gotcha's" that might make the 2138 a tad
different than other LPC2's, and cost me another board revision.

So...

1. Is there a later LPC2138 manual tucked away somewhere on Web?
2. Has anybody been bitten by a LPC2138-specific oddity that sets it
apart from other LPC2's, especially in the UART and SPI peripherals?

Thanks!

The nov 22nd release seems to be the latest I could find on the web.

Hi Bill.

If you're not using the extra I2C interface, you should be able to use
the LPC2124 user's manual. I had a board design based on the LPC2124
and laid the board out so I can swap it for the LPC2138 when it became
available. Last week I replaced the LPC2124 with the LPC2136. I used
the same flash program file for the LPC2124 on the LPC2136 and it worked
without a problem. I did not have to recompile the software for it to
work with the LPC2136. If there gotchas, I haven't run into them...
...yet.

Hi,

Rather recently published on the Philips website here:
http://www.semiconductors.philips.com/acrobat_download/usermanuals/UM10120_1.pdf

How to get there?
From here:
http://www.semiconductors.philips.com/pip/LPC2138FBD64.html
The so called Product Information Page for the LPC2138 has a section
"Support & Tools" scroll down, scroll more, scroll more...
For whatever unknown reasons it is called Volume 1....!? but it is the
User Manual :-)

Cheers, Bob
