This was in my inbox, it seems natural since Luminary Micro is located
in the great state of Texas already.

Dear Stellaris customer,

Today, TI has announced the acquisition of Luminary Micro
and our Stellaris family of ARM Cortex-M3-based
microcontrollers... etc etc...

This is definitely interesting. I was telling the local TI people
that their Cortex M3 offering is vaporware and I am not
interested in MSP430 or their DSCs the other day. Now
they have real Cortex M3 part. Still I think the ST offerings
of STM32 are more complete.

By the way, the [ARM] tag is kind of dead. Maybe [EE]
helps.

Indeed.  It gives TI and exceptionally broad range of ARM chips.  20  
to 600Mhz...  Nice to see them get some embedded ethernet controllers,  
too.

I tried a few times to buy Luminary Micro's ARM (28 pin dip) to play around,
but wasn't bothered enough. There were some nice designs in Circuit Cellar
constest a few years ago.

Googled and found this
www.luminarymicro.com/about_luminary/microchip_lawsuit_faq.html
"On April 10, 2006, Microchip (MCHP) filed a lawsuit against Luminary Micro
(6) claiming that Luminary Micro's 28-pin StellarisR series of ARMR
CortexT-M3 32-bit microcontrollers infringe three of Microchip's patents."

The lawsuit is about : 'Microcontroller having an n-bit data bus width with
less than n I/O pins' etc and therefore only against the 28pin range.

Interesting page. Lawyers. Yuk!
