Basic hookup using an mbed LPC1768 and a breadboard

For the LPC1768, make the following connections with jumper wires:

(USB Breakout → LPC1768)

  • VCC → VU
  • D- → D-
  • D+ → D+
  • GND → GND

Additionally, add 2 15kΩ pull-down resistors on the D+ and D- lines. Attach one resistor from D+ to GND, and attach another from D- to GND.
