NXP Semiconductors has announced the expansion of its ARM7 and ARM9 MCU portfolio 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 MCU. The NXP LPC3200 MCU family which consists of the LPC3220, LPC3230, LPC3240 and LPC3250 will be displayed at the Embedded Systems Conference April 14-18.

Designed in 90nm process, the 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 32bit market continues to outpace the growth of the 16bit and 8bit markets," said Geoff Lees, vice president and general manager, microcontroller product line at NXP. "We developed the LPC3200 family building on the strong success of our LPC2000 and LPC3000 to meet demand for higher performance MCUs. NXP's goal is to continue to provide our customers with the broadest ARM MCU offering in the industry."

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 I?C, I?S, SPI, SSP, UARTs, USB, OTG, SD, PWMs, ADC with touch screen interfaces, 10/100 Ethernet MAC and a 24bit 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 MCUs will be sampling in April with volume shipping in Q3 08.
