San Jose, Calif. and Eindhoven, NetherlandsNXP Semiconductors, the independent semiconductor company founded by Philips, expanded its product portfolio of ARM7 and ARM9 microcontrollers (MCUs) with the LPC3200 family that is based on the ARM926EJ processor.
The NXP LPC3200 MCU family, which consists of the LPC3220, LPC3230, LPC3240 and LPC3250, will be displayed at the Embedded Systems Conference April 14-18 in San Jose at booth #624. The line is being targeted at consumer, industrial, medical and automotive applications.
Designed in 90nm process, the NXP LPC3200 family combines the performance of an ARM926EJ core, a Vector Floating Point (VFP), an LCD Controller, an Ethernet MAC, On-The-Go USB, an efficient bus matrix and a large set of standard peripherals. According to NXP, these features offer embedded designers the ability to reduce on-chip components and maximize power savings without sacrificing performance.
Additional features include I²C, I2S, SPI, SSP, UARTs, USB, OTG, SD, PWMs, A/D with touch-screen interfaces, 10/100 Ethernet MAC and a 24-bit LCD controller that supports STN and TFT panels. The family supports DDR, SDR, SRAM and flash memory devices and provides the option of booting-up from NAND flash, SPI memory, UART or SRAM.
Pricing: Ranges from $6.95 to $8.25 in 10K volumes.
Availability: Sampling in April with volume shipping in the third quarter of 2008.
