LPCXpresso Overview

 

LPCXpresso 1769 is a new, low-cost development system available from Embedded Artists. Designed for simplicity and ease of use, the LPCXpresso provides software engineers a quick and easy way to develop their applications from initial evaluation to final production. The LPCXpresso target board is jointly developed by Embedded Artists, Code Red, and NXP. The target board, based on the NXP LPC1769 chip, is supported by MicroSHADOW Research's LadderWORK software. The software is available in a free demo version allowing to to have a complete tour in the simplicity of the graphical programming.

LadderWORK Overview

LadderWORK is the easiest way to create automation control programs. Use of LadderWORK is immediate. With the use of the mouse only, you simply place functional objects in your worksheet , connect the components with wires and configure the components property. Microprocessor assembler code will be generated at the simply push of the BUILD button. 
LadderWORK software integrate a powerful schematic editor with multi view feature and context-sensitive help. 
LadderWORK's generated code is really efficent. Microprocessor's assembly code it's directly generated by the compiler so no other instructions charge will affect your result ( NO 'C' SOURCE GENERATED AND COMPILED PROCESS ). In this way with LadderWORK you always are sure to obtain the best size & speed optimized code. 
LadderWORK produce a Intel-Std HEX file as output. Also intermediate assembler and listing files are available as output of LadderWORK compile process so you can check instruction by instruction the generated code. Many PLC devices supported by LadderWORK software can directly upload the generated code simply pushing the UPLOAD button. A great number of build-in functional components are ready to be placed in your project. LadderWORK software includes a standard set of LADDER DIAGRAM (RELAY LOGIC) devices and a set of extra components, like pure-logical ports and user-programmable functions. 
Full ADVANCED version includes over 30 devices : input/output devices, relays, d-type flip flops, debouncers, clock generators, delay lines, up/down counters, comparators, fifo/lifo queues, A/D & D/A converters, and/or/not logical ports and user programmable functions.LadderWORK produce a Intel-Std HEX file as output.

More than a Ladder language

Ladder standard language is strongly rigid. Components must be forced in predeterminated cells along two rails called rungs. Moreover Ladder standard language has great limitations about feedback connections. LadderWORK broken these limitations introducing the first free schematic ladder diagram. LadderWORK includes a powerful schematic editor. Components can be placed anywhere and there isn't limitation on feedback connections. LadderWORK schematic is more similar to an electrical circuit. Moreover LadderWORK includes extra components like logical ports and flip-flops so if you are well-versed in boolean logic you can approach your problem using these traditional notation.

Electrical notation approach

LadderWORK is remarkably intuitive!


With LadderWORK you haven't to know nothing about assembler, interrupts or hardware architectures. All you have to do is think your project as a electrical scheme where you have to disposition switches, relays and lamps. Switches means inputs, lamps means outputs and relays gives the way to create states and elementary memory cells. Many problems related to control automation can be resolved in few minutes using LadderWORK.

Put a PLC into your microcontroller!

With LadderWORK you can transfom a microcontroller in a full-featured PLC. LadderWORK and LPCXpresso gives you a way to try this amazing system. You can have a working PLC few minutes and, as you can see, just using a microcontroller and few other components.


The LadderWORK Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

The picture below, represents the apperance of the program LadderWORK on your computer. LadderWORK has an integrated environment feature, allowing you to draw schematics, compile programs and upload code to PLC always working on the same window. The integrated environments are composed by several parts described below.
