Hi All,
I'm interested in learing LPC2138 ARM device.
I need suggestion whether I've to purchase the
development board from IAR Systems or Signum Embedded
Store(online).

Hi Javved,
This is a technical forum and your question is
revelant.
I highly respect your religious faith and I do not
intent to try to change any single thing of your
believes.

I am a christian Orthodox and your signature is highly
insalting to the God as I believe in Him, Jesus , the
birth of whom we ( the christians) are about to
celebrate next Sunday 25th December.

Please find a way to declare your personal religious
identity without provoking and insalting other people
religion.

Thank you.

Hi Viron,
I swear that I never meant to hurt any body
with the signature that appends to every email that I
send..and I never recieved any comment on behalf of
that from any body...

If it is insulting u or any body like you..then God
forgive me... I'll see that not to send such kind of signatures
before sending any email... But still you did not answer to my technical question? Regards

As moderator, I don't see anything wrong with that signature (I'm a devout
atheist). Some people might find Happy Christmas offensive, which is why Mr
Bush hasn't got it on his Christmas cards.

Hi Javeed,

Also have a look at the boards from Emedded Artists
http://www.embeddedartists.com/. Good value for money IMO!

Cheers

I think both of these are good, and others like the Embedded Artists
board, the Tini2138, the Keil MCB2130, and some boards from Olimex.

But one thing that is very important should also be considered: the
JTAG device. Some use the Jlink, the Ulink, the Wiggler, etc. Once you
buy a development board you should probably buy the JTAG device that
comes from the same vendor, unless you already have a device.

The compiler tools should also be considered. Obviously, IAR has their
own tools (the 32K limited version is free), and Keil has theirs (the
16K limited version is free), and Olimex recommends the CrossWorks
tools from Rowley.

I think any of these tools can work with any JTAG device, and on any
of these boards, but you often find "bundles" that come with boards,
so you should look into this to know what comes with each board.

You frequently don't use an RTOS on an ARM7 device, but that is
possible, and many people do it.

I haven't tried this, but I understand FreeRTOS is an option.

There's even a flavor of linux that can run on an Arm7 (uLinux).

If you need a full-featured RTOS, you might be better off with an Arm9
device.

Yes. Implementing an RTOS on the LPC parts is very much a viable option.
I've worked with the following on the LPC2129 and LPC2148:

// commercial
1. Segger embOS - does not use FIQ or SWI, free real-time RTOS trace via
serial port, and IAR C-Spy plug-in. A clean easy to read API, that is well
documented. No additional cost per multiple products. They offer free
evaluation software that works. There are also some very helpful run-time
diagnostics.
2. Micrium uC/OS-II - real-time RTOS trace via serial port is additional
cost. A clean easy to read API, that is well documented. A fixed license
fee per individual product.
3. Salvo - Cooperative scheduling. Low cost.

IAR C-Spy plug-ins are available for embOS and uC/OS-II. Cost for uC/OS-II
plug-in is additional $$. // open source
1. FreeRTOS - your app cannot use software interrupts. API and general
features are not nearly as evolved as the commercial offerings. Some
limited diagnostics. My professional preference is Segger's embOS for the medium to large LPC
parts. Joel

Is the Jlink and the Ulink also usable in a "clean" GCC + GDB
development environment?
