NXP Semiconductors announced the availability of its LPC551x/S1x microcontroller (MCU) family – further extending its performance-efficient LPC5500 MCU series. The LPC551x/S1x MCU family offers developers low power consumption, embedded security, pin-, software- and peripheral-compatibility to accelerate time-to-market. The LPC551x/S1x family leverages ultra-efficient 40-nm flash technology for cost and performance benefits.

Key features include:

  • Over 600 EEMBC® CoreMarks® and as low as 32uA/MHz
  • Up to 150 MHz Arm® Cortex®-M33 core
  • Up to 256 KB on-chip flash; up to 96 KB SRAM
  • CAN FD / CAN 2.0 with MCUXpresso-based software enablement
  • Dual-USB with on-chip PHY, supporting both HS and FS modes
  • SDIO and up to 9 FlexComm interfaces (configurable as either SPI/I2C/I2S,UART)
  • Advanced security enabled with MCUXpresso software and tools:
  • Available in HLQFP100, VFBGA98 and HTQFP64 packages
  • LPC551x/S1x is fully supported by NXP's MCUXpresso suite of software and tools

The LPC551x/S1x MCU family is available now from NXP and its distribution partners with a suggested resale price starting at $0.97 (USD) for 10,000-unit quantities of LPC5512JBD64.
