Bambino 210



The Micromint Bambino 210 is a multi-core SBC designed for compatibility with the mbed framework. This popular framework for embedded software development includes extensive class libraries, tools and broad community support, allowing you to deliver embedded applications faster and more reliably. The Micromint Bambino 210 is powered by an NXP LPC4330, the first dual-core ARM Cortex-M microcontroller. Its Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0 cores are both capable of concurrent 204 MHz operation. With 264 KB SRAM onboard and 4 MB of flash, developers can fulfill demanding requirements in monitoring, instrumentation, data acquisition, process control and many other applications. Two USB device ports serve both as power sources and for data communications or debugging. I/O starts with two buttons and four LEDs and can be extended using Arduino compatible shields. Hardware and software licensing is open source, giving developers the freedom to adapt the Bambino to their specific requirements.

For applications requiring networking and additional I/O we offer the Micromint Bambino 210E, including the same base features but with enhanced functionality. Flash goes up to 8 MB and extended I/O headers are available for interfacing additional I/O modules. 100 megabit Ethernet is onboard, as well as microSD and Xbee sockets. Besides the built-in ports, boards can be ordered with optional mbed HDK and a JTAG interfaces. A coin cell battery for the RTC, screw terminals for power and two PMOD interfaces can be easily implemented in the field by soldering components.

Pricing for the Micromint Bambino 210 and 210E in single quantities is $26.95 and $41.95 respectively. Volume pricing and custom configurations are available by contacting our Sales staff at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

mbed HDK


The mbed HDK includes an NXP LPC11U35 microcontroller with the mbed CMSIS-DAP firmware for better integration with mbed tools. It implements the following features:

  • USB Mass Storage Device for drag and drop programming of the LPC4330
  • USB Communications Device Class for Serial Communication with the LPC4330
  • USB HID CMSIS-DAP for debugging LPC4330 firmware
  • USB bootloader for updating the LPC11U35 firmware

Option - JTAG Interface


The JTAG interface option includes a Cortex-M 10-pin (0.05"/1.27mm) JTAG connector for debugging. This option is required to debug applications using a JTAG probe (not included). It is highly recommended for multicore debugging. A Cortex-M 20-pin Debug+ETM connector is available by special order for applications requiring trace and profiling support.
