Availabilty of redesigned LPC213X and LPC229X chips

Started by alipowsky March 2, 2006
Since juli 2005 we ask our Philips FAE and business contacts in
germany for a date, when redesigned chips of the LPC2134/6 and the
LPC2292 will be available.
The bugs around the timer/match/pwm ISR issue and the bugs in the CAN
controller have now turned into blocking points concerning the release
of some of our projects.

Every time we asked, we have got later dates, but not exact
information was given til today.

As we now have to make the decision to switch to another ARM-7
manufacturer. 
Before we go this unpleasant and expensive way, we would like to ask,
 whether anybody around here, has some secure informations about the
redesign schedules for the above mentioned cpu's.

Thanks 
Andreas

The LPC213x bugs have been fixed in the LPC214x, which is software 
compatible, and pin compatible except for pin 10 and 11.

...Ummm.....also... 
Questions of when philips is going to mask rom the 2 silicons:
LPC2114-LPC2294 and LPC213x-LPC214x, and default JTAG to DISABLE.

Though after so many heated arguments on flash protection and
conclusion of the 2 silicons are hack-proof, fortifying the read
protection will enhance users'/public's confidence.   

=> At least, with JTAG default as off,  we will not have any more
such discussions here and I think everybody will be happy!! :)

Can philips please help to MaskRom + JtagOff the chips??  
Many Thanks and I will switch from LPC2103 back to LPC2124.
Regards

We are also facing funny timer isr behaviour. 

I have written TImer ISR to generate one_sec bit and toggle an LED.

In main I dump a message on LCD display, and increment a step_number.

when quantity of this step crosses 20 or so, timer stops working, LED 
stops toggling.

We are using keil and LPC2132.

I want to know what is exact problem you are fcing. Is it same as my 
problem?
	
Yes Philips, please plug the hole(s) that do(es) not exist :)
