Overview:
USB-to-serial applications has been traditionally
supported by 8-bit microcontrollers but now with the advent of the Cortex-M0 USB
LPC11U00 microcontroller series, customers can expect much more performance and
better code density while maintaining lower power at a much lower cost. Also, by
offering USB drivers (HID, MSD, CDC) in ROM, free Product IDs and easy-to-use
tools with the LPC11U00 low cost USB Cortex-M0 microcontrollers, NXP delivers
all the key ingredients that embedded engineers need for successful USB
application development. This webinar will focus on the “USB-to-serial”
application and discuss the advantages of switching from traditional 8-bit to a
32-bit NXP LPC11U24 microcontroller, including the steps designers need to take
to see the resulting benefits of reduced cost, lower power, enhanced
performance, and faster time-to-market.

What attendees will
learn:

  • Key benefits of using the USB ROM drivers in the LPC11U00 series.
  • How to switch effectively from 8-,16-bit to 32-bit Cortex-M0 LPC11U00
    series?
  • USB hardware and firmware design suggestions
