32-bit in a DIY friendly package!


#3

Dip package ARM, been waiting for this for 5 years. Finally here!


#4

DIP will be cool.

Breadboard ARM :slight_smile:


#5

I hope the price will be right.


#6

Digikey sells the existing packages at $2-$3, so these should be about the same.


#7

They show up as “Development” in product status. How long does it usually take NXP to move from “Development” to “Production”. If anybody knows.

EDIT: Never mind. Found the answer in the press release:

#9

49 cents! No wonder ARMs are in everything.


#10

32K flash only :frowning:

I guess I will still have to wait fro another year or 2!


#11

Yeah and some users asked why we used cortex-m0 on daisylink, now you know. ARM si the way to go.Plus we have the tools.


#12

Woah … that is a lot of CPU to drive one LED. However, like you said you had the tools and they aren’t expensive …

You have 1Ghz processor in your pocket just to make phone calls :slight_smile: Why not? They are cheap and low power.
