The mbed microcontroller was the first hardware used to bootstrap the mbed platform, used for creating smart devices based on ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers.

The mbed Microcontroller (more precisely mbed NXP LPC17680) is based around an NXP microcontroller, which has an ARM Cortex M3 core, running at 96 MHz, with 512 KB flash, 64 KB RAM, as well as several interfaces including Ethernet, USB Device, CAN, SPI, I²C and other I/O.

The mbed platform now supports different ARM Cortex-M hardware though porting of the mbed SDK to support new microcontrollers, and use of the mbed HDK to create custom boards that support the software platform.

History[edit]

Awards[edit]

The mbed microcontroller received first prize in the annual EDN Innovation Awards' Software/Embedded Tools category.[4]
