ROYAL Philips Electronics has released the first five of a series of 32-bit MCUs with up to 512 kilobytes of on-chip Flash.
The LPC2130 series is aimed at the 32-bit ARM7 segment. Applications include industrial control, computing-peripheral and medical markets. The series offers fast Flash memory, low-power operation and built-in error correction.
The series includes the LPC2131, LPC2132, LPC2134, LPC2136 and LPC2138. They have up to 512 KBytes of 128-bit-wide Flash memory. This enables four 32-bit words to be accessed in a single fetch, allowing the CPU to run at 60 MHz (54 MIPS) without wait-states.
The series has a real time trace and debug capability which permits designers to continuously debug a system under actual conditions, drastically shortening debug-and-modify iterations.
The five new devices are footprint-compatible with an 16/32-bit ARM7TDMI-S CPU with ARM debug and embedded trace interfaces and 47 bit-addressable GPIO pins. They also have 3V single-voltage supply with brown-out detect and power-on reset, dual 8-channel 10-bit ADC and a 10-bit DAC, and QFP and HVQFN 9mm x 9mm, 64-pin packages.
