In this tutorial we are going to discuss the Timer module of Explore M3.
LPC1768 has four 32-bit timers, We will use Timer0 and Timer1 to generate a delay of 100ms and 500ms for blinking the LEDs.


Please check this tutorial for detailed explanation on inbuilt Lpc1768 RTC module.
If you are doing it for the first time, then check the below links to setup the project for generating the .bin file.
