Getting started with LPC2000

Started by David Collier October 15, 2007
Can I have some recommendations on tooling up to use the 2129?

We use ARMs, but under Linux, and almost never at the kernel debug, or
JTAG level.
Now I'm looking at working with the L2129. I guess I'll be working on
bare metal, or possibly a simple RTOS. So I need to get to grips with
IPS/JTAG programming and some editor-compiler-linker-debugger chain.

What sort of tools would I want to get?

I could spend a small amount of money - a few $100 or so, but not much
more at this stage. We use Rowley on the MSP430, but I'm not sure if I
can swing the cash to go their way on the ARM.

I happen to have Wavecom's OpenAT stuff running on my computer. That
seems to be a working GNU ARM compiler and linker, running under Eclipse.
Anyone know how much work it would take to bend it to my purpose?

What hardware and s/w do I need to debug the resulting programs? I've put
a 20-pin JTAG connector on the board.

Any/all advice welcome.

Cheapskate! I'll make you regret it... ;-)

Good hunting.
