NEW PRODUCT – LPC810 Mini Starter Pack

1336 Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – LPC810 Mini Starter Pack. If you love the speed and simplicity of ARM Cortex M0+ chips, but want to just dip a toe in, you’ll fall in love with the adorable little LPC810. This particular chip in DIP8 really jumped out at us since it’s so different than what people usually think of when they hear ‘ARM’.
The DIP8 LPC810 is still somewhat of a challenge to use precisely because it’s so small (by ARM standards, anyway): 4KB flash and 1KB SRAM. But the low price, 32-bit processor, 12MHz internal oscillator, I2C/SPI/UART with configurable pin-matrix, and built-in serial bootloader is quite nice.

To get you started, this pack contains an LPC810 DIP chip, two LEDs with matching 560 ohm resistors, two tact switches with matching 10K pullups, a MCP1700-3.3V regulator + 2 x 0.1uF capacitors and a USB-serial programming/debug cable. All you need is a breadboard and a computer to follow our step-by-step starter tutorial written by KTOWN (resident ARM Core Master).

  1. I’m ordering one because of this tutorial and I actually have two ARM books on ARM architecture and some development kits and a couple of websites that teach beginners but this is a good place to start as well.
