LPC1768 Cortex-M3 Microcontroller


NXP offers their LPC1768 Cortex-M3 microcontroller in 5 x 5 mm package

For embedded applications, the LPC1768 Cortex-M3 microcontroller features a high level of integration and best-in-class peripheral support at frequencies up to 120 MHz. The architecture features a multi-layer AHB bus that supports multiple high-bandwidth data streams running simultaneously from peripherals such as Ethernet, USB, or CAN. In the series each MCU is pin-compatible with NXP's ARM7 LPC2x00 and Cortex-M4/M4F LPC4000 series. Designers can compare different cores in the same socket, or quickly migrate designs from one core to the other.

The latest addition to the family features the LPC1768 in a 5 x 5 mm package saving designers valuable space in application designs while delivering high performance, multi-connectivity, and advanced peripherals in a small footprint.
