I was able to get my hands on an early sample of the LPC82x LPCXpresso board, and put together some drivers for Adafruit's Motor Shield (v2) to test the MCU out. 

I've been really impressed with the LPC82x as an upgrade from the LPC81x series, and the Arduino style headers make it relatively easy to gain access to a lot of existing HW. 

If you're interested in trying the Arduino-style headers out with a readily available shield I've published the motor shield drivers on Github here: https://github.com/microbuilder/LPC824_MotorShieldv2_Drivers

The drivers make use of the ROM-based I2C drivers (in polling mode), and the SCTimer to driver either DC or servo motors.  The LPCOpen library is also used, and will need to be downloaded and the following libraries must exist in the same workspace:

[list]
  [*] lpc_chip_82x
  [*] lpc_board_nxp_lpcxpresso_824
[/list]

I hope this is of help to someone!
