LPC2000 group will die????

Started by "franco.rupi" March 12, 2009
Hi to all,

Just a question on LPC2000 group. As most of us know NXP is releasing new chips LPC1000 family and LPC3000 family, my thinking is that LPC2000 family will very soon die, as for the LPC236X (ARM 7) chip (not the oldest chip in this family!!!!) there is already a LPC17XX (Cortex M3) chip replacement pin2pin compatible.

Now my question is should LPC2000 Group grow to include also new NXP families, or it should died with LPC2xxx chip family?
Thank's
Franco

A new name as "LPC_ARM" or better would be sufficient.

I suspect this group will continue to discuss LPC2000 and LPC1000 devices.
After all, this is probably the liveliest, most-focused uC group outside the
MSP430 Y! group. I'd hate to be a member of an LPC1000-only group.

After all, the LPC2000 was the only family when it all started--so the name
of the group is rather immaterial now, I would conjecture.

Yes I agree!, I've seen also an excisting group called LPC3000 (Yahoo group), I bealive that a single group called LPC_ARM would be a must!

I don't see why it shouldn't cater for users of the newer devices. I think I
can rename it if necessary, simply by changing the group's address.

I would vote that you DO NOT rename it. Come on, the LPC2000 group is so
well known now, just edit up the group synopsis--enough people find this
group.

You mean "die" like Jason, Freddie Krueger or the 8051 ? ;-)

All in all, I think it's best to leave it as it is. I'll amend the
description.

Leon

My question was only to know if LPC2000 group would become the right spot where to post questions on any device of LPC family.
>From the reply it seems without any doubt of YES!
This makes me feel better!
