Teensy LC


Platform Teensy: Teensy is a complete USB-based microcontroller development system, in a very small footprint, capable of implementing many types of projects. All programming is done via the USB port. No special programmer is needed, only a standard USB cable and a PC or Macintosh with a USB port.

Microcontroller MKL26Z64
Frequency 48MHz
Flash 62KB
Vendor Teensy


Please use teensylc ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = teensy
board = teensylc

You can override default Teensy LC settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest teensylc.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = teensy
board = teensylc

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = mkl26z64

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 48000000L


Teensy LC supports the next uploading protocols:

  • jlink
  • teensy-cli
  • teensy-gui

Default protocol is teensy-gui

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

platform = teensy
board = teensylc

upload_protocol = teensy-gui


PIO Unified Debugger - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.


You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Teensy LC does not have on-board debug probe and IS NOT READY for debugging. You will need to use/buy one of external probe listed below.

Compatible Tools On-board Default
