What I want to do is fairly straightforward and will serve as a foundation for more complex projects in the future.

I would like create my own PCB with a USB interface, a LPC1343 microcontroller, a LED and whatever other components are needed to support the board (caps, resistors, etc...)

My goal is to be able to turn the LED on and off from a Windows PC over the USB interface.

The biggest question I have is, do i need to write my own windows driver for the device to interface with it?

I'm rather new to the microcontroller scene, however I have 10+  years experience programming in C/C++ (mainly geared towards game programming)

Just looking to get pointed down the right path. =)
