Getting Started with your Free LPCXpresso Board
LPCXpresso is more than just a slim blue PCB, because it includes free software development tools for Linux and Windows (‘include’ is not really the right term to use since you have to download it all yourself from the Internet). The software tools come as a nicely packaged Eclipse-based integrated development environment with its powerful editor and the GCC compiler, linker and debugger suite for ARM. Simply run the downloaded executable to install the tools. This will also install many code examples that you can try out.
