Fwd: Is LPC2xxx shock resistant?

Started by CeDeROM February 23, 2008

I heard that LPC chips are suceptible to damages caused by bad voltage
on some pins when chip is turned off etc, while atmel arm cores are
not. I didn't test it myself but heard it from a friend of mine that
is really good in electronics. Is that true? Are atmel chips more
resistant to harsh environment, overvoltages, swapped pins, etc? Any
info appreciated :)
