Cortex-M4 DSC with FPU, Ethernet, USB, optional LCD, and NXP’s SPIFI

The LPC4000 series are Cortex-M4/M4F based MCUs that can support multiple high-bandwidth data streams running simultaneously from peripherals such as Ethernet, USB (host or device), CAN, and LCD display. Drop-in compatible with LPC177x/8x and ARM7 LPC2x00 series MCUs, the LPC4000 has the patent-pending SPI Flash interface (SPIFI), providing a seamless high-speed interface to low-cost QSPI Flash. SPIFI offers a cost effective way to add Mbytes of program or data flash to your system.

The LPC4000 series are ideal solutions for:

  • Applications requiring external SDRAM or scalable Flash memory configurations
  • Embedded products requiring vibrant graphic LCD displays
  • Digital signal control tasks
