Full Market Launch Date: Sep 30, 2019 The K32 L3 MCU family represents the third generation of Kinetis. It delivers significant improvements in power optimization and security advancements to address a wide range of industrial and IoT applications. Based on a high-performance Arm® Cortex®-M4 processor and a low-power Cortex-M0+ processor (optional), the K32 L3 MCU is ideal for applications that require a host MCU and a low-power MCU. With up to 1.25 MB flash and up to 384 kB SRAM, t ...
If you are a software developer and want to integrate an NFC reader into your device, this webinar demonstrates the procedure. NFC frontend offers a host interface and a contactless interface. Host interface is a low level access to the contactless interface providing full access to the IP. The host controller uses the register access to the contactless interface : to configure RF framing and signaling. to finally transfer the RF digital protocol based blocks to/from a counterpart. An NFC fr ...
The NFC antenna design is one major part in every NFC reader design. For a proper NFC reader design, it is required to have the insights and skills about choosing the right antenna for your purpose as well as knowing the NFC antenna tuning procedure.   The important considerations to take into account from the NFC reader design perspective apply at the component level.   From the reader IC perspective, we need to consider: ·        The RF prot ...
  Today, the growing number of NFC smartphones enables intuitive interaction with just a tap to your smart device. Take the Smart Home example: very often complexity comes with the first setup of devices that are as diverse as the standards under which they operate. NFC provides simplicity in the entire home network. With just a tap, new objects and devices are easily connected to the network. NFC is perfectly complementary with the other wireless technologies whether it's ZigBee, WiFi, Blu ...
    Over a decade ago, I had my first article published on the topic of Smart Speed, with the idea that power consumption must be as important a design consideration for mobile communications devices as speed and ability.  The article has a lot of things right, but I think it really failed to grasp the magnitude of the importance of power consumption in the broader market and it certainly did not do justice to the challenges that engineers would face to achieve the next-generation ...
The Internet of Things or IoT is a buzzword these days.   Generally speaking, IoT refers to all kind of objects…. from medical equipment, appliances, wearables, meters, to cars….  which get equipped with sensors and network capabilities so they are able to collect and exchange data.   The Internet of Things does not refer to any specific technology, but actually, it is made of many technologies working together in the direction to…. increase automation, safe ...
The CLRC663 plus is the follow-up to the groundbreaking CLRC663. It delivers optimal performance in every application and offers a special low-power support to make battery-powered systems more efficient.   CLRC663 plus is ideal for a wide range of applications, including access control, payment, gaming and industrial. It’s an excellent choice for any design with high performance requirements. If you need the best NFC performance or the lowest power consumption, CLRC663 plus is your ...
Homes are increasingly connected. Everyday appliances, from lights and ceiling fans to washing machines are now being connected to the Internet. Consumers will be able to control appliances, monitor and manage energy consumption, increase comfort and enhance entertainment to a whole new level as NFC enabled consumables make the Internet of Things (IoT) a reality. Our mobile device will increasingly become the ‘remote control for our lives’. Connecting our appliances to the home netwo ...
NFC adds the magic to gaming. Incorporating NFC tags into games and toys allows for an interactive connection between the physical and virtual worlds. NFC can enhance the experience with any kind of toy or game, from classical board games that interact with NFC-enabled devices, to trade cards and figurines that come alive in the virtual world when tapped against smartphones or consoles, to smart toys communicating with each other. In all of these use cases NFC enhances the gaming experience and ...
Here at Avnet we've been working on a couple of new MT3620 Azure Sphere products to help you prototype and deploy your secure IoT solution easily and quickly.  Look for more blog content on these items soon, but for now I wanted to provide information on our offerings.   We're producing a pre-certified commercial off the shelf MT3620 module that can accelerate your Azure Sphere based product development.  We used the module on a new Azure Sphere Starter kit.  This means that ...
Last year, NXP and Amzon introduced an advanced IoT module based on the LPC54018 Microcontroller. The voice control solution is one of the best in the market, which brings attention to NXP's new LPC540xx MCU Series. However, when taking a deeper look, it is suprising to find that there have been some upgrades and addition to the family already after launching for only less than a year!     The new members of the LPC540xx MCU series includes several highlights and feature addition to ...
  At Embedded World last month, many new products were introduced, and I was certainly busy reading up on the latest news.  A new product I came across, an Automotive box-PC based on an Arm® Cortex®-A9 core, made me want to re-look at some of the Cortex-A9 products that NXP has launched in past years -after all, the i.MX 6 series is still one of the most comprehensive, most scalable portfolios in the market and it continues to be a crowd favorite with new customers.  Th ...
If you needs a platform with more scalable performance and memory options but rich features to support your multiple applications, NXP Kinetis  KE1xZ is a perfect option. On March 7, KE1xZ64 as a new memember of KE1xZ family is fully launched. Based on the Arm Cortex-M0+ with up to 48 MHz performance, providing up to 64 KB flash and 8 KB RAM along with a complete set of analog/digital features including Touch Sense and CAN, the KE1xZ64/32 MCUs extend the 5 V Kinetis E family with smaller ...
With Apple’s recent launch of iOS12 and the iphone XS and XR, NFC just got another big boost. Now almost two billion people worldwide who own smartphones will also have an NFC reader to interact with NFC tags. Join the exciting world of NFC with its limitless possibilities that deliver great user experience whilst enabling new value-driving industrial, medical and consumer applications.   Please see attached webinar recording and slides for further details. ...
