Mouser Electronics Now Shipping Feature-Rich LPC546xx 32-Bit Cortex-M4 MCUs from NXP

April 19, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader that empowers innovation, is now stocking LPC546xx 32-bit microcontrollers from NXP Semiconductors. These flexible and scalable devices dramatically improve dynamic power consumption and provide advanced peripherals that enable designers to create building control, communication, automotive infotainment and navigation, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The NXP LPC546xx-M4 microcontrollers, available from Mouser Electronics, are powered by a 180 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 core with up to 512 kBytes of on-chip flash and up to 200 kBytes of SRAM, plus a quad SPI Flash Interface (SPIFI) for expanding program memory. The ARM core includes a floating point unit (FPU) as well as a memory protection unit (MPU) that separates the memory into distinct regions to improve the reliability of an embedded system.

The LPC546xx-M4 microcontrollers offer over 21 communication interfaces, including 10 Flexible Serial Interfaces, plus Ethernet support, a TFT LCD controller, and two CAN FD modules. The devices feature a programmable power management unit (PMU) that minimizes power consumption and matches power requirements at different performance levels. The devices feature low-power operation with active mode currents down to 3.3 mA and deep-sleep mode consumption as low as 22 µA.

Mouser is also stocking the LPCXpresso54608 development board. Designed for simple, rapid prototyping and evaluation, LPCXpresso development boards work with the LPCXpresso and MCUXpresso integrated development environments (IDEs) or industry-leading partner toolchains. The LPCXpresso54608 development board comprises the LPC54608 target device and a Link2 debug probe with CMSIS-DAP and SEGGER J-Link protocol options. The board also includes a PMod-compatible expansion port and a 10-pin SWD connector for use with third-party debug probes.
