LPC1700 Series: Scalable Mainstream Microcontrollers (MCUs) based on Arm® Cortex®-M3 Cores

The LPC1700 series are Cortex-M3 based MCUs with solid mid-range performance and power efficiency and able to support multiple high-bandwidth data streams running simultaneously from peripherals such as Ethernet, USB (host or device), CAN, and LCD display.

Touchscreen Interface
Touch Sensors

Touch-sensing technology reliably replaces mechanical buttons and switches to eliminate mechanical wear and tear.

Motor Control
Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor

The brushless DC (BLDC) motor is also referred to as an electronically commutated motor. There are no brushes on the rotor and commutation is performed electronically at certain rotor positions.

Shock Sensor
Motion Sensing Platform

Programmable to provide freefall detection, tilt and 3-D orientation detection, tap and double tap detection, dead reckoning, shock, vibration and sudden motion detection, and power management.

RF
Sub-GHz RF
  • ASK/FSK modulation with Manchester codec
  • Fractional-N-PLL supporting all sub 1-GHz ISM bands (315/434/868/915 MHz) with a single IC
  • Low power operation
  • On-chip programmable IF filter with automatic calibration
  • High RX sensitivity and TX efficiency
Power Management
Power Management for i.MX Application Processors

These PMICs may also integrate the battery management functions that include a switching or linear battery charger, a coulomb counter, coin cell charger and power path selection.

Battery Charger
Battery Chargers
  • Output voltage and input over-voltage protection
  • Constant current (CC) and constant voltage (CV) charge modes
  • Trickle charge current and trickle charge voltage thresholds
  • EOC current and timeout; verification filter timing
  • Recharge and thermal fold back thresholds
Printer
POS Printer

Benefits include

  • Low cost and complexity
  • OS support to control print-heads, paper handling, character management, scanner inputs
  • Management of digital/analog inputs and controls
  • Multiple connectivity options
  • Flexibility to address multiple mixed-feature applications
