Designing with components for NXP’s LPC1800 microcontrollers based on Cortex-M3 will provide users with high performance operating speeds of up to 180 MHz, large on-chip memories, high-speed USB, SPI Flash Interface, and State Configurable Timers whilst the LPC1100 microcontrollers based on Cortex-M0 gives you instant access to low-cost, easy to use and energy-efficient processors.
Also available to Altium users, are the high-performance, low-cost, digital signal processing capabilities which are introduced with the new Digital Signal Control (DSC) processors for the LPC4300 microcontroller series based on the Cortex-M4.
“Collaboration with NXP has enabled us to provide easy access to the Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 & Cortex-M0 based microcontrollers for our global Subscription customers.” said Rowland Washington, Content Development Manager for Altium. “This update is delivered as part of our content-driven subscription model and further expands on our range of third-party, design-ready IP for our customers.”
With this release, electronic designers now have access to a set of new, supply-chain enabled devices which will complete the Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0 board-level component support available in AltiumLive. The collection from NXP Semiconductors can be seen in the Unified Components store.
“Collaborating with Altium to deliver high-quality component models through AltiumLive will enable design engineers to harness the benefit of NXP microcontrollers with Altium”s extensive design library.” said Ken Dwyer, Applications Engineering Manager, NXP Semiconductors. “With these components now easily available, it will save hardware engineers valuable time and also speed up the design cycle.”
