As you may have noticed, the publication date of these posts has been shifting a bit. Well, no longer: from now on, all posts will be scheduled to go out on … Weekly Wednesday!

As before, each post will mention one or more new articles, released on successive days.

This “Getting Started” series has been about exploring ARM ┬ÁC’s, in particular the 8-pin LPC810 shown above, and there’s one important topic left to cover so you can compile your own code and explore what’s possible in this virtually infinite playground.

Here goes, the concluding articles of the Getting Started series:

If you’re eager to start tinkering with the LPC810 chip: have a look at the JeeLabs shop, where Martyn Judd & Co from Digital Smarties have created two very practical packages to get you started: the Bare ARM Blinker kit which has everything needed to replicate and extend the recent explorations on this weblog, and the ARM duo- and 6-pack, i.e. a supply of bare LPC810 chips to experiment with. Note that there’s no soldering involved.

Be warned, though: it’s pretty addictive stuff! – and we’re only just getting started…
