Philips Offers Its Fastest ARM7-Based MCU
Royal Philips Electronics today announced three new additions to its LPC2000 microcontroller family: the LPC2101, the LPC2102 and the LPC2103. Based on the ARM7 TDMI-S architecture, the new LPC210x series can operate at speeds up to 70MHz (63 MIPs).
Philips' new ARM7-based MCUs also feature Fast I/O capabilities, which allow bit-toggling at a speed of 17.5 MHz. In addition, innovative power management features allow deep power-down mode current consumption - with the real-time clock running - to be less than 10 ľA. 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.
Based on the ARM7 core, the LPC2000 family offers users comprehensive tools and development support environments from traditional 8-bit and 32-bit partners, including Keil, IAR, Nohau, Hitex, Ashling and ARM Inc. Development kits from IAR and Keil, including compilers and development boards, start at US$99 and US$149, respectively.
The LPC210x MCUs will be available starting in November 2005.
