It has been a long time since I posted my latest article in the community about NXP's newest LPC5500 MCU: The LPC551x/S1x family with same security level as the previously launched LPC552x and LPC55S6x, but less price as well as extra CAN-FD interface. There is more and more interest in the field with LPC5500 series of microcontrollers these days. Not only because NXP is promoting it to be its mainstream MCU platform in the recent years, but also because its high-efficiency leveraging Cortex-M33 ...
Semiconductor industry is always evolving at an unprecedented speed. You may feel this trend when changing your smart phone from an older generation to the latest offering from Apple or Samsung, and found that the screen and performance of the device is better than you ever could imagine, just like the time when you change your personla computer several years ago.   However, not only the power of a high-end processor is enhancing continuously, the benefit of technology upgrade also lies in ...
Of course we know that 32-bit microcontrollers are getting more and more attention and start to 'dominate' the market since years ago because of the advanced technology node and good power consumption performance. Thus, not all applications needs 32-bit, like co-processors and control unit for a specific module. Sometimes they prefer 8-bit for cost reasons, sometimes for simplicity that they offers to save develop resources. Anyway, 8-bit is still playing the game in the market, just not in the ...
NXP has unveiled it's latest quad core Arm Cortex-A53 based i.MX 8M Nano applications processor family in December 2019.   i.MX 8M Nano applications processor is the third member of the i.MX 8M family. Built in high-performance and power-efficient 14FinFET technology, it brings scalable, secure and cost-effective quad-core processing to edge IoT devices.   Core combination   Firstly, let's talk about core combination. Like the i.MX 8M Mini,2x the new i.MX 8M Nano has several ...
As world's first general purpose Arm Cortex-M33 based microcontroller series, NXP's LPC5500 has drawn a lot of audience since initial announcement 1 year ago.   LPC55S6x was launchec in Q1 2019 as the first product family in this series. Due to the advanced Cortex-M33 architecture, the first-time introduction of TrustZone into microcontrollers and NXP's advanced security design and PowerQuad core to accelerate calculation, this product has attracted market interest to a large extent.  ...
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 ...
If you want to design for some certain IoT application based on an Arm-cored microcontroller, it might be really expensive. Although there are various of development platforms in the market to choose from, but you have to spend a lot to buy even just a single piece. I am talking about fifty dollars or even a hundred for one board, that could scare lots of individual developers away in no time.   Sometimes people just want to create a sub-system for a larger scale design, or do some creatio ...
According to Wikipedia, a DSC (Digital Signla Controller) is a hybrid of microcontrollers and digital signal processors. Due to this unique structure and advantage in computing data, DSCs are used widely in a bunch of applications, such as motor control, power conversion and sensor processing applications. DSCs are even marked as green technologies because of the potrential to redue power consumpition in electric motors and power supplies.   NXP semiconductor foresees the potential of DS ...

Join this NXP X Arm joint webinar to find more and help you develop your own ideas!   Notice: This webinar is in Mandarin   Machine learning (ML) technology is being increasingly adopted across the embedded sector in applications ranging from consumer to industrial IoT. All because of its unique potential for innovation. With the combination of popular neural network frameworks such as Caffe and Te ...
The cost and complexity to develop, deploy and manage secure cloud-connected nodes have continued to gate mass market from realizing the true potential of IoT applications. NXP Semiconductors has now introduced the LPC54018 MCU based IoT module featuring an onboard Wi-Fi module, and supporting Amazon FreeRTOS, reducing the complexities of IoT node-to-cloud designs as well as enabling developers to create seamless, secure, and cost-effective IoT solutions connected to the AWS cloud.   Amaz ...
Although hundreds of participants have registered and checked out NXP's latest webinar —— 'Get to market fast with NXP LPC800 MCUs - A low-cost, entry-level, 8-bit alternative for your next design!', still many regrets and complains about not being part of the webinar series, or haven't checked the whole picture of the 4-phase training that took place throughout June.   Now you don't have to worry because the recordings of the whole webinar series are available on NXP.com. Ple ...
If you are searching for a high-performance, power efficient, yet cost sensitive MCU for your designs, then here is the exciting news: NXP recently introduced the LPC51U68 MCU.   Power efficient solution for future IoT designs   Based on the Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core, the LPC51U68 MCU pushes the performance of the core to 100MHz, which is more than two times faster than current Cortex-M0+-based products. The LPC51U68 MCU also provides expanded memory resources of up to 96KB o ...
Near Field Communications (NFC), even though used in dozens of applications from contactless payment to healthcare, and billions of NFC ICs, readers, and tags are in use globally, studies continue to show that many, even very inexpensive, products that could benefit from it have yet to do so.   The use of NFC in inexpensive products, of which there are thousands, recently got more appealing thanks to a microcontroller within NXP’s LPC800 series introduced last October targeted spec ...
