  • dmendes: I?ve bought this board in 1/2009 and it came fitted with a rev 0 LPC2378 (the third revision of this chip was launched in 2007). Rev 0 is so useless (it can?t run at max speed, USB has problems, ethernet has problems, external memory bus is broken… download errata sheet at NXP and see for yourself). Before you decide to spend you money in this board, ask Sparkfun which version they are selling. I took some time to identify this problem and they didn?t accept my board back.
    This is slightly worrying… can we please have some news SparkFun?
    Also, does it come with a serial/USB bootloader preloaded? Or do NXP chips have a serial bootloader burned into them?
    Answers please :)
    Thanks
