Importance of tools

Good point about keeping one tool vendor from supporting the competition, Rich. Tools are becoming more and more important as MCU complexity rises and time-to-market drops.

Charles,

I agree. The acquisition of Code Red Technologies by NXP was a very good business decision. Freescale had a similar acquisition, I believe, with Code Warrior to help support the microcontroller portfolio. Also, Code Red software is quite easy to use with NXP's LPC microcontrollers to the point you don't have to extract the files for the .zip file to  compile and down load to the target mcu. The tool provides a "one" click extraction and download process with ease.
