NXP Semiconductors Releases LPCXpresso 6
NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today released LPCXpresso 6 – a major update to the popular integrated development environment (IDE) for NXP's LPC microcontrollers, based on Eclipse. LPCXpresso 6 introduces many new features as a direct result of NXP's acquisition of Code Red Technologies – the makers of Red Suite – earlier this year. NXP has doubled the download limit for the Free Edition to 256 kB, and has introduced a new Pro Edition of LPCXpresso providing unlimited code size downloads and one year of email-based support, directly from NXP engineers.
