With 150 MHz performance and advanced DSP instructions, NXP’s Cortex-M4 based LPC4300 series combines excellent signal processing performance with all the benefits of a microcontroller including integrated interrupt control, low power modes, low cost debug and ease of use. By taking advantage of NXP’s asymmetrical dual-core Cortex-M0 subsystem, developers can offload many of the data movement and I/O handling duties that can drain the bandwidth of the Cortex-M4 core. NXP’s unique configurable peripherals such as the State Configurable Timer and Serial GPIO also offload processor bandwidth while providing maximum I/O flexibility to the developer.

Attendees will learn about:

  • ARM Cortex-M4 digital signal processing (DSP) and floating-point capabilities
  • NXP’s optimized memory architecture to support Cortex-M4 performance
  • NXP’s industry first Cortex-M0 subsystem processor
  • Advances in embedded tools to support asymmetrical dual-core architectures
  • NXP’s unique configurable peripherals
