Hi guys,

We've noticed that unlike Atmel chips, NXP LPC1200 I/O defaults to using pull-up in reset state and this doesn't play well with our existing circuitry.

We were wondering if there any common practises users of this chip are deploying to design circuits that have a safe reset state when the chip defaults into pull-up? We're both price and space concious and so the use of buffers etc is unideal.

Many thanks
