NO RATINGS
Rapid Prototyping: I try to buy eval boards configured as close as possible to my desired config -- with ready to go driver librraries and lots of demos showing as many pieces of the puzzle as possible. I then scour the internet looking for missing pieces andd further examples -- and active user forums.

If possible I download and test eval versions of the IDE/Compiler -- if practical.

Since I try to use C+ or Pascal -- testing is important.

Also -- I need Ethernet TCP/UDP packetizing -- so looking through those implementations is a mus as well.

If I can find the above items, the MCU and board go on the final list -- then I choose.
