The catch is you have to send pictures or a video of an application that will
replace an 8 or 16 bit design.

So I guess you have to already be a microcontroller designer, or give that
impression.

NXP in a daring campaign to promote their latest 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 micro (and
associated development tools) are challenging the
microcontroller community to show (not "tell") them how programmers like you
<quote> break the habit of using 8-bit and 16-bit <end
quote> microcontroller systems.



To boost the campaign NXP are giving away LPCXpresso boards that contain a
Cortex device. To qualify for receiving one free of
charge, all you have to do is to show how you plan to stop using 8 and 16-bit
devices. You can do so by sending in a picture or a
video which if accepted will be included in a gallery you can view on the NXP
M0-Cortex web page.

What does software-bloat look like in the microcontroller environment?

So what's that in text? I find that I can't actually be bothered to
write the trivial program that decodes it.

Sure you can!

Why write anything?

Why write something - 'cos it's trivial!   :)



Sylvia this ones ok too:

Should have known there's be something on the web somewhere to do that.

Was rather disappointing though.

I took a look, and all I saw was some idiot attempting to cut the legs off a
chip with the end of a pair of scissors!!

Look at the gallery for more.
There are a lot of jokers bashing up chips etc., dunno whether the judges
will only give the micros away to people that look serious or not...
