NXP Semiconductors introduces four new 32-bit ARM9 microcontrollers


LPC3200 family brings high-performance LCD, Ethernet and USB On-The-Go to the masses

Today NXP Semiconductors, the independent semiconductor company founded by Philips, announced the expansion of the largest portfolio in the ARM7 and ARM9 microcontroller space with the introduction of the LPC3200 family. The NXP LPC3200 family is based on the popular ARM926EJ processor and targets consumer, industrial, medical and automotive applications providing designers with a high-performance power efficient microcontroller. The NXP LPC3200 microcontroller family which consists of the LPC3220, LPC3230, LPC3240 and LPC3250 will be displayed at the Embedded Systems Conference April 14-18 in San Jose at booth #624.

Designed in 90nm process, the new NXP LPC3200 family combines the performance of an ARM926EJ core, a Vector Floating Point (VFP), an LCD Controller, an Ethernet MAC, On-The-Go USB, an efficient bus matrix and a large set of standard peripherals. These features offer embedded designers the ability to reduce on-chip components and maximize power savings without sacrificing performance.

It is clear that the 32-bit market continues to outpace the growth of the 16-bit and 8-bit markets. We developed the LPC3200 family building on the strong success of our LPC2000 and LPC3000 to meet demand for higher performance MCUs, said Geoff Lees, vice president and general manager, microcontroller product line, NXP Semiconductors. NXPs goal is to continue to provide our customers with the broadest ARM MCU offering in the industry.

High-performance microcontrollers with longer battery life

Designed for flexibility in applications that require fast, simultaneous communications, the LPC3200 combines high-performance, low power consumption and a myriad of peripherals. The features include I2C, I2S, SPI, SSP, UARTs, USB, OTG, SD, PWMs, A/D with touch-screen interfaces, 10/100 Ethernet MAC and a 24-bit LCD controller that supports STN and TFT panels. The family supports DDR, SDR, SRAM and Flash memory devices and provides the option of booting-up from NAND Flash, SPI memory, UART or SRAM.


The NXP LPC3200 family of microcontrollers will be sampling in April with volume shipping in Q3 2008. Demos will be available at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in San Jose April 14-18, 2008. Additional information on the NXP microcontroller products is available at:
