Hello!
I am new in nxp's microcontroller world.
I have worked on microchip's microcontroller since long time.
I want to use rtos or linux on lpc1830 microcontroller.
Can it be possible to use linux on lpc1830?
if no then which microcontrollers from nxp support linux?

There is a Linux (uClinux) port for the NXP LPC185x devices available from Emcraft Systems:


<a href="https://www.emcraft.com/products/231">http://www.emcraft.com/products/231</a>


It is a low-cost BSP product if you want support from the development team. Otherwise, you can grab the sources from Emcraft's git repository at github.com and try it on your own.


Either way, I can tell you that Linux runs quite well on the LPC185x.

Full-fledged linux is supported on the LPC3xx family (ARM 9) from NXP. Check out http://www.lpclinux.com/ for more information. The ARM Cortex M0/M3/M4 architectures used in many other NXP microcontrollers for more embedded applications do not have a Memory Management Unit (MMU) which means they can't support full-fledged linux, but they should be able to support a port of uClinux http://www.uclinux.org/.

You can use uCLinux with lpc18x controller.

There is a big difference between Linux and RTOS:

- Linux are multiple processes, with shell support.
- RTOS are multiple threads, and there is one application
  running all the time.
