*Has anyone had any experience with MBED ARM microcontrollers?*
*Here is their link:* http://mbed.org/
*Mbed* appears to be a website that allows you to write and compile C/C++ code *online* and dump it straight onto a target board without installing anything on your PC. Looks intriguing.
Sparkfun is selling the *mbed NXP LPC1768* development board for $60:
Digikey appears to have a similar board for $30. It may have fewer features:
I am interested in getting my feet wet in *ARM* processors and *C++* and this looks like a pretty inexpensive way to go about it. I purchased a BeagleBoard a while back but feel a little overwhelmed by the complicated software that you have to set up before you can do a simple “Hello World”. Beagle development seems to require installing a Linux virtual machine on your PC.
I would like to avoid dealing with Linux for the time being, hence my interest in easy ARMs. If anyone has had good experiences with eval boards for other ARM type processors, I would appreciate your suggestions.
Thanks – Jimbo
