LPC3000, LPC2900, and LH7A - Experience NXP's ARM9-based microcontrollers

NXP's ARM9-based MCUs are based on the ARM926 core (LPC3000), the ARM968 core (LPC2900), or the ARM922T core (LH7A).

The LPC3200 series is the only ARM9 microcontroller that provides a vector floating-point co-processor and integrated Ethernet, USB On-The-Go, as well as LCD controller. At 125MHz, the members of the LPC2900 series are the fastest ARM968 MCUs available.

Key features and benefits

  • NXP's most advanced microcontrollers
  • With speeds of up to 266 MHz, the NXP LPC3000 family supports Linux and WinCE and is ideal for a wide range of applications in consumer, medical, industrial, automotive and networking.
  • 32-bit ARM9 cores
  • Supported by a comprehensive set of software and hardware design tools, the LH7A family makes it easy to create everything from cost-conscious consumer systems to advanced systems with media-rich environments.
  • Speeds in excess of 200MHz
  • Code Read Protection mechanism to safeguard user code
  • 90nm technology
  • Up to 32 kB of zero wait-state Flash
  • Real-time clock with 32-kHz crystal and battery back-up pins
  • Up to 8 kB of SRAM

Key applications

  • Serial communications protocol converters
  • Handheld card readers
  • Distributor access and security control
  • ZigBee
