For years and years most microcontrollers (MCUs) have been designed around an 8-bit core. They have become so widespread that many MCU system designers have become trapped in a kind of 8-bit syndrome with all their tools and knowledge based on 8-bit systems. Have a problem? Grab an 8-bit MCU. This paradigm may soon be obsolete if we can believe the 32-bit MCU manufacturers. They do have a case as some of their products are extremely low-cost and can probably outperform any 8-bit MCU in any application. The only problem that remained was their size - often 32 pins minimum - but this barrier has now been taken down too with the introduction of NXP's LPC810, the first ARM Cortex-M0 in an 8-pin DIP case.
In this webinar we will introduce you to the new LPC800 family and show you how easy it is to develop an application with it. The on-chip peripherals will be discussed and some of the special features will be highlighted. Thanks to free programming tools, a built-in bootloader and libraries in C, 32-bit MCU development has never been easier.
The webinar (in English) consists of a 30 minutes presentation followed by a question-and-answer (Q & A) session during which selected viewers’ queries are discussed and answered. The minimum attendance requirements at the viewer's side are successful registration, a valid email address and a PC with broadband Internet access. All Elektor/element14 webinars are free to attend by everyone. Don't miss it!
