I am approaching to the ARM world and I develop applications for Cortex
M3 LPC17xx and in the future also LPC11xx M0 .
I have to develop in C with the libraries support.
I'm evaluating development tools to use and would like some advice from
those already developed in this field, considering that my application
would probably exceed 32K and not want to risk it.
I tried the evaluation version of Keil UVisions 4 where I configured the
CodeSourcery GNU compiler, but I read that debugging is limited to 32K,
can you confirm me this information ?.
I also tried LPCXpresso limited to 128K with the possibility of moving
to 256k with low cost, but the libraries seem too basic and not complete
for all peripherals.
What made the libraries better? I saw that most of the examples are for
So, I want opinion from those already use these processors, to be used
as development tools at no additional cost and if so, what to buy at low
