Extended temperature range ARM MCU family for industrial applications
NXP recently introduced the LPC11E6x MCU family of processors based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ core for extended temperatures and industrial applications. The MCU family is designed for rugged operating environments from -40 °C to +105 °C. The MCU family incorporates high-speed analog/digital converters, USERTs, SPI, I2C, and 82 GPIOs along with EEPROM, timers, and temperature sensors to provide the integration necessary for a number of industrial applications like metering, boiler, and industrial control. The LPCXpresso board provides a test board integrated development environment, and is operational with the ARM mbed program where NXP is a lead partner.
