PC810 Mini Starter Pack
If you like the speed and simplicity of ARM Cortex M0+ chips, but want to just dip a toe in, you`ll fall in love with the adorable little LPC810. This particular chip in DIP8 really jumped out at us since it`s so different than what people usually think of when they hear `ARM`. The DIP8 LPC810 is still somewhat of a challenge to use precisely because it`s so small (by ARM standards, anyway): 4KB flash and 1KB SRAM. But the low price, 32-bit processor, 12MHz internal oscillator, I2C/SPI/UART with configurable pin-matrix, and built-in serial bootloader is quite nice.
To get you started, this pack contains an LPC810 DIP chip, two LEDs with matching 560 ohm resistors, two tact switches with matching 10K pullups, a MCP1700-3.3V regulator + 2 x 0.1uF capacitors and a USB-serial programming/debug cable.
