    Quick start using WinARM

    WinARM is a collection of GNU tools for ARM MCU family packed by Martin Thomas that works on MS Windows. WinARM is developed by inspiration on WinAVR project and it is really simple to start working with it if you had a chance to try WinAVR. WinARM doesn’t depend on cygwin or mingw-environment like GNUARM tools does. WinARM toolset is compilled to work with most ARM microcontrollers including LPC2000 series, Atmel’s ARM microcontrollers and Analog devices ARM microcontrollers as well. Basically tools should work with any microcontroller with ARM architecture.
