Hi,

I just purchased and EzSbc2 and I'd like to start experimenting. I am new to ARM and so I have a few newbie questions:

What tool suit (compiler/assembler/libraries) is recommended? (I am using a Win-7 PC)
Are there a tutorials and/or examples to help a newbie get started?

Thanks in Advance,
Scott

Hi

The free tools downloadable from http://www.mentor.com/embedded-software/sourcery-tools/sourcery-codebench/editions/lite-edition/ are relatively easy to use. There is an excellent tutorial on getting started with free tools here http://www.microbuilder.eu/Projects/LPC1343ReferenceDesign/LPC1343CodeLiteTutorial.aspx. The code base for the LPC1347 can be found here https://github.com/microbuilder/LPC11U_LPC13U_CodeBase and has working examples for every part of the chip.

Just one word of caution, the LPC1343 looks a lot like the LPC1347 but the peripherals are very different. Examples for the LPC1343 generally will not work on the LPC1347. If you plan to do more than casual work on ARM CPU's I suggest that you give Crossworks for ARM from Rowley http://www.rowley.co.uk/arm/index.htm a try. It has an exceptionally good c-library and debug support. The tools work the same on Linux, Mac and Windows and the price is reasonable.

Hope this helps.
Daniel
