NXP introduces its new LPC1700 Cortex-M3 microcontroller family. The LPC1700 is a highly integrated, high performance microcontroller based on revision 2 of the Cortex-M3 core. This family leverages NXP's microcontroller expertise with outstanding peripherals including: Ethernet, USB (Host, Device/OTG), CAN, 12-bit ADC, DAC, motor control PWM, I2S, ultra-low power RTC and a host of others. NXP's unique blend of peripherals and versatile bus architecture make this suitable for a wide range of applications, from simple to demanding. NXP's LPC1700 processor is targeted at 8-, 16- and 32-bit applications. Topics covered include a brief overview of the Cortex-M3 architecture, NXP's implementation and peripherals, development tools and software environment. This presentation is suitable for both ARM veterans and newcomers alike.
