MINI ARM7 KIT - ARM developement board Review
MINI ARM7 KIT - LPC 2148
First I searched in the local electronic markets in Pune, but I was able to find only two shops in Pune where there boards are available (Rajiv electronics and Sadashiv electronics). I enquired in these shops, but I was not able to find any boards which were cheaper than 2500(around $57) and I did not feel it is worth buying those boards. So I deced to get MINI ARM7 KIT - LPC 2148 from NSK electronics, Bangalore which is available for 1500 online. There is option for buying online, but I bought it directly from their shop when I visited Bangalore last week.
There is no seperate power supply, but the USB cable can be used as power supply.
Setting up the board was very easy, Connect the serial port to computer, install and open the Philips Flash Utility(download v2.2.3 here), and set the options as shown in screenshot below.
Even though the quality of the board is not up to the mark(one out of four LEDs did not work when I tried the LED blink code), this will be a cheap and good option to start with.
