LPCXpresso Board Arrived

On March 12, I blogged about the NXP LPCXPresso giveaway. I posted a video online of myself destroying some chips using the NXP "break your 8/16 bit habit" theme to qualify for a free board.

At the time, I was somewhat doubtful that I'd get a board. The eligibility requirements weren't clearly spelled out and the entry form requires a 'business' e-mail address.

Well, I'm happy to report that NXP sent me an LCP1114 XPresso board! I haven't had time to dive into it yet but I'm pleased to have the new hardware. The Cortex M0 platform looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.
