LPC540xx MCUs: flexible communication for next-gen IoT applications

13 July 2018

Distributed by Mouser, the LPC540xx microcontroller from NXP Semiconductores

The devices include 11 FlexComm interfaces for HMIs and sensors, allowing developers to adapt to the communication and connectivity requirements of various IoT, building automation, and diagnostic equipment applications.

Now stocked by Mouser Electronics, the devices from NXP Semiconductors are designed for applications that require data aggregation from multiple inputs: the power-efficient LPC540xx microcontrollers balance rich feature integration with high power efficiency, delivering an active mode current of 100 µA/MHz.

The 32-bit NXP LPC540xx microcontrollers, available from Mouser Electronics, feature a 180 MHz Arm Cortex-M4 processor with 360 Kbytes of SRAM and a quad SPI flash interface for expanding program memory.

The powerful, low power microcontrollers boast serial wire output and ETM Trace for enhanced debug capabilities and feature Ethernet support with audio video bridging, two CAN FD modules, and a TFT LCD controller. The flexible LPC540xx microcontrollers are an ideal choice for multi-node and multi-protocol communication hubs, with a graphics display for easy usability and support for HMI and GUI applications.

Mouser Electronics is also stocking the NXP LPCXpresso54018 development board, LPC54018 IoT module, and IoT module baseboard. The LPCXpresso54018 development board supports the MCUXpresso integrated development environment (IDE) to enable rapid prototyping and evaluation.

The board features a standard 10-pin header compatible with third party debug probes, as well as an Arduino Uno-compatible expansion port. The board includes a complete set of peripheral interfaces, allowing developers to thoroughly explore the capabilities of LPC540xx microcontrollers.

The self-contained, high-performance LPC54018 IoT module incorporates an LPC54018 microcontroller and a Longsys GT1216 IEEE802.11b/g/n module. The IoT module can be used standalone or plugged into the NXP IoT module base board for rapid product development and prototyping on IoT platforms.

The IoT module base board provides several on-board peripherals for rapid prototyping and evaluation, including SDRAM, USB interface, LCD with touchscreen, stereo audio codec, digital microphone, Ethernet PHY, micro SD and Arduino Uno expansion connectors.
