XMOS no more…

I decided to forget about XMOS. I decided to go with ARM. ARM seems to be a nice budget choice. Especially in these bad times. A ARM IC can cost as low as $3. XMOS minimum is like $7. Also the ARM programmer can be made or bought for under $20. (parallel) The XMOS programmer is $50 minimum.

As you can see the price is important. ARM speeds are great but harder to implement parallel type code. But the price is main thing right now. So ARM here i come..

    1. Yeah ARMs come in wide varieties. But most have the same core. There are a few cores
      tho. Im thinking about starting with the ARM7 core ARM7TDMI. Mainly since it is available
      in ISIS (Proteus). This way i can create simulations on it since i dont own a scope. It
      would be simple to debug issues with it.

    1. I recently applied for a new job. If i land it then i will jump into XMOS. But for now and until i land a good job i will get into ARM. Sorry. But im sure you will love ARM also. Arm MCUs are in tons of devices from small laptops type netbooks and cellular phones. So they are powerfull!

    1. Arduino is AVR not ARM but still ARM is a nice MCU its really simple. (the low end devices) it depends on what you want to do. My main thing is to control LCDs and VGA monitors. So expect to see tons of stuff soon.
