Hello,
just beginning with LPC812 and trying to understand the best way to devepol for it..

why is there several versions of LPCOPEN for the same mcu ? (lpc812max & nxp_lpcxpresso_812).
I looked at it rapidly, but it seems to me that the differences are essentially in the xxx_board_lib files.
why not a single version with several xxx_board_lib directories and all the other files the same, just renaming the directories something like LPC8xx_..., instead of board-name_...
and why no board file for the LPC800-mini-kit ?
thanks.
Fred
