Attention microcontroller users around the world! Ready to enter NXP Semiconductor’s LPC800 Challenge? Getting started is straightforward.
Elektor and Circuit Cellar have partnered with NXP Semiconductors to promote the Challenge. Once you have your LPC800 mini-board and code, you simply register and start working. The rules and complete details are listed on the LPC800 Challenge webpage.
The entry deadline is August 30, 2013. Once all the entries are received, NXP will select the most unique, interesting and funny submissions to receive a LPC800 LPCXpresso development kit.
The LPC800 is an ARM Cortex-M0+-based, 32-bit microcontroller operating at CPU frequencies of up to 30 MHz. The LPC800 supports up to 16 KB of flash memory and 4 KB of SRAM. The peripheral complement of the LPC800 includes a CRC engine, one I2C-bus interface, three USARTs, two SPI interfaces, one multi-purpose, state-configurable timer, one comparator, function-configurable I/O ports through a switch matrix, and up to 18 general purpose I/O pins.
