Did a search on octopart to find a replacement, only problem is there are a lot of variations. This seems like a bit of an upgrade (http://components.arrow.com/part/detail/50268246S8830327N7713?region=na) but I'm unsure if I need to get a I2C/SPI interface or one with a JTAG interface. Also I was reading the Energia wiki and it mentioned that some chips have built in UART. Which one is that? I have version 1.4 of the board. Is it worth it to upgrade to 1.5 or will replacing the chip do basically the same. Trying to use this to prototype and program the chip then gonna either design a pcb or ju
