Overview:
Learn how latest innovations in NXP’s
asymmetrical dual-core LPC4300 allow developers to maximize performance in
signal processing and microcontroller applications including digital audio,
industrial automation and motor control without adding additional costs.
Providing almost twice the performance without the cost and complexity of typical dual-cores, the
LPC4300’s Cortex-M0 co-processor can offload many of the data movement and I/O
handling duties that can drain the bandwidth of the powerful Cortex-M4 core.
Additionally, NXP’s unique configurable peripherals—such as the State
Configurable Timer and Serial GPIO—can also offload processor bandwidth while
providing maximum I/O flexibility to the developer.

What attendees will learn:

  • the performance trade-offs between an ARM® Cortex™-M3, ARM® Cortex™-M4 and
    NXP’s asymmetrical dual-core LPC4300 digital signal controller
  • how a simple Inter Processor Communication (IPC) software module on the
    LPC4300 unlocks the performance of the two 32-bit ARM cores
  • how to utilize smart and configurable peripherals to offload processor
    bandwidth demands, opening up new potential for microcontroller applications and
    reducing overall system costs
