I want to be able to add code to this MCU by connecting it to my mac by USB connection. How could I do this?


You need a suitable JTAG interface with Mac development software. A Rowley CrossConnect with their CrossWorks software for the Mac is one solution:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Mouser is their main distributor. \$\endgroup\$ – Leon Heller Mar 22 '13 at 21:32
  • \$\begingroup\$ Is there another way to add code to the MCU from my mac without JTAG? \$\endgroup\$ – Coder404 Mar 22 '13 at 21:34
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Coder404 you would need a USB bootloader running on the target... \$\endgroup\$ – vicatcu Mar 22 '13 at 21:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ You might be able to use a USB to RS-232 converter if something like Flashmagic is available for the Mac. LPC ARM chips have a built-in RS-232 bootloader. \$\endgroup\$ – Leon Heller Mar 22 '13 at 21:36
