With the LPC800, NXP has designed the first microcontroller that offers the simplicity of a low-pin-count 8-bit controller with the versatility of a 32-bit Cortex M0+ core. This is a bold move towards making 8-bit architectures obsolete, so we want you to try it for yourself and show us what you can do with this groundbreaking MCU.
LPC800-MAX – best of three worlds
Following on from the first LPC800 simplicity challenge ( see a selection of the many video demonstrations we received), NXP is giving away 500 vouchers to get the LPC800-MAX board for just € 1 from Embedded Artists.
Due to overwhelming response, all the vouchers have been redeemed already. You can still buy the board directly from Embedded Artists or from your local NXP authorized distributor. If you did receive a voucher but have not used it yet, note that it is only valid until 30th of October 2013.
Supporting LPCXpresso, mbed, and Arduino environments, this board allows users to choose and work with their favorite elements from each development environment (IDE). So test the LPC800-MAX for yourself and see how you can breathe new life into your old 8-bit designs.
