I just heard from the folks at NXP, who say that they are jolly pleased to announce the launch of a new website dedicated to explaining how NXP LPC Microcontrollers make lighting control design easier and more cost-effective. The site provides all the information you need to upgrade to NXPís low-power options with our LPC microcontroller series without increasing costs.
They say that the low-power and low-cost options available with their LPC1100XL
make it a compelling solution for DALI lighting systems, where total energy savings are a critical factor. For DMX networks, the LPC1100XL and LPC11U00 series offer the resources and performance required to support more sophisticated architectural and stage lighting projects. And for KNX nodes, our LPC1100 and LPC1200 series are perfectly suited for energy-efficient controls.Click Here
