Getting started with a good board / development tools for LPC2xxx development

Started by jeanpierrepoulin November 10, 2006
Hello LPC gurus

May I have a few moments of your time for a recommendation on a good
board for LPC2xxx ARM development?

We're considering the $1.70 LPC2101 for low cost products and the
new LPC2888 for USB battery-operated handheld remotes, but we
haven't committed to the decision yet as we're still evaluating
competing ARM chips such as the new Atmel AT91SAM7Xxx.

To help us make the right decision, has anyone seen any good board
that contains usable samples for robust development of USB-based
battery-efficient products based on the Philips ARM offering?

In addition, if you have any recommendations to offer on a good
toolchain that offers solid documentation and particularly effective
sample code that can facilitate development of the above, the info
wouldn't fall of deft ears!

Thank you!!

An Engineer's Guide to the LPC2100 Series

Embedded Artist's educational board is packed with a lot of stuff for only $110 and they have a lot of examples. Crossworks runs great with it.

Jean-Pierre, you may consider our iARM-2103 board. It's USB enabled and
powered. Go to our site http://www.imagecraft.com/software, then click on
Hardware, then ARM. The designer wrote a boatload of example codes using
our compiler. The board can also be used in a production setting. Currently
we are talking to a couple customers who are considering doing that. Any
questions, feel free to ask me...
