Hi guys, I'm just graduating from ATmega 8-bit controllers to NXP LPC processors which is a huge step. I am not so familiar with the lpcxpresso design tools and the IO access syntax or the library commands. Basically my question for now is;
Is the LPCOpen my only choice?
And what's a typical syntax to access the GPIO ports? The examples provided online are not so straight forward.
Thanks  :)
