- Similar cost to Arduino Uno at around US$20
- The LPC812 has twice the RAM, but half the program space of an ATmega328P
- It's faster than the Arduino's ATmega328P: 30MHz 32-bit vs 16MHz 8-bit
- It's pin-compatible with LPCXpresso and Arduino boards.
- An I2C ADC is employed for analog ports
- A port expander is also used for a couple of digital ports
- Arduino Uno and LPC800-MAX have usb-enabled MCUs as serial bridges.
- You can use LPCXpresso CodeRed IDE, Eclipse-based with hardware debug
- You can use web-based mbed IDE with
The mbed support in particular makes it tempting to get one since I am quite familiar and happy with mbed. I don't know if the expansion ICs operate transparently but if not it'd be a bit cumbersome to use. So, would you buy one? Is NXP nuts?
