    I think they r not available in in india as well as if u r planning to buy them from outside you have to pay a lot for them. I'v used them and i dont advise you to use them unless u r unsatisfied with high power 8 bit mcus like AVR or PIC.

    Having worked with ARMS ... i can say that they can do what ur PC can do ... that is they can run linux/other embedded OS's and ull feel at home while programming using GCC.

    But sadly ur in India - Availability is questionable , you'll have to import. Secondly its SMD so ull have to buy some kind of base board too unless u can solder them. Also people who do sell them here will most probably rip you off .

    Though they are Very Powerfull they will take your development costs up similarly.

    What i recommend is something like Gumstix ( google for it ) - Its small SBC on which you can get started in hours.Other wise there are loads of Dev Boards - choose one u like .

    hi shashak,

    I'm in Thailand. I just started learning ARM7 so I try to go around forums to find informations. My country www.ett.co.th http://www.etteam.com/product/ARM/arm_index.htm provides LPC board. They also have international order http://www.ett.co.th/inter_order.html. If you want to get it.
