One can only imaging why it's a fat DIP in this day and age, .3" DIPs have been out for decades.

Still, kudos for having a DIP at all.

BTW, there's another one now (or at least next year)

It is hard to imagine a modern production run with dip devices.

Personally I never use DIPs these days, but people still like them for prototyping.

There's a lot of people (including me :smiley-sweat: ) that "play" with Arduino and MCUs for hobby at a very early stage, that: are not able to do a home-made PCB; can not solder SMD cases. So DIPs are fantastics because you can use them with breadboards or classic stripboards easily  ;)

Somebody has already tried LPC1114FN28/102 DIP28 on a breadboard with a "blink a led" test code.
See: http://www.meatandnetworking.com/tutorials/lpc1114fn28-with-open-source-tools/ for all details.

The test just says that this ARM is relatively easy to use by hobbyists. However, it does not prove anything about the performance of LPC1114FN28/102 as compared with an Atmega328p, for example. If it is not 10 times faster, likely AVR funs will not abandon so easily their favorite microcontroller for it.
