Claiming a 10 MHz edge on other ARM7 TDNMI based 32-bit microcontrollers, Philips Semiconductors will in November make available three new additions to its LPC2000 (MCU) family.
The LPC2101, the LPC2102 and the LPC2103, based on the ARM7 TDMI-S architecture,
the devices can operate at speeds up to 70 Mhz (63 MIPs).
According to Joe Yu, director of strategic marketing, microcontroller product
line, Philips Semiconductors, the new ARM7-based MCUs also feature Fast I/O capabilities, which allow bit-toggling at a speed of 17.5 MHz, four times faster than competing ARM MCUs on the market.
In addition, he said, innovative power management features allow deep power-down mode current consumption - with the real-time clock running - to be less than 10
A. On-board communication peripherals include two 16C550-compatible UARTs, two Fast I2C-bus interfaces, two SPI/SSP interfaces, four timers with PWM capability
and a 10-bit ADC.
