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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

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.
