Subject [NEWS] NXP Announces LPC1100 ARM Cortex-M0 CAN Microcontrollers Date 10.05.11

LPC11C00 is the industry
s first Cortex-M0 MCU with easy-to-use on-chip
CANopen drivers

Eindhoven, Netherlands and San Jose, California - NXP today introduced the
first two devices, LPC11C12 and LPC11C14, in the LPC11C00 series featuring
a Controller Area Network (CAN) 2.0B-compliant controller for industrial
and embedded networking applications. CAN has long been considered one of
the best choices for robust real-time communication, but price-prohibitive
for low-cost embedded applications. With the introduction of the LPC11C00
series, NXP now provides a new low-cost entry point and total CAN solution
reducing product development risk, lowering total system cost, and speeding
time to market for high-performance embedded designs.

With the addition of several low cost CAN device options, the LPC1100
family is continuing to expand into even more 8 and 16-bit application
said Geoff Lees, vice president and general manager,
microcontroller product line, NXP Semiconductors.
Offering CAN and
CANopen protocol support directly on-chip greatly simplifies the plug-and-
play integration process.

Traditionally used primarily in automotive applications, the CAN bus is now
one of the best choices for embedded networking applications which require
communication across multiple embedded microcontrollers and CAN device
nodes such as sensors and actuators. Some of today
s new market demands
are embedded machine control applications such as home appliances, motor
controllers and elevator systems, as well as energy and power controllers
that increasingly need to communicate with each other. One recent example
is a high-end coffee machine using microcontrollers interconnected via

Incorporating CANopen drivers in on-chip ROM provides design engineers with
easy-to-use API commands to the CANopen protocol, enabling rapid
integration of the LPC11C00 series into CAN based networks. These drivers
provide defined CAN and CANopen APIs to simplify CAN application

The following functions are included in the API:
 CAN set-up and initialization
 CAN send and receive messages
 CAN status
 CANopen Object Dictionary
 CANopen SDO expedited communication
 CANopen SDO segmented communication primitives
 CANopen SDO fall-back handler

Furthermore, these drivers are incorporated in low power ROM, freeing up to
8kB of user code space and offering the dual advantage of reduced operating
power, as well as secure and safe bootloads via CAN or other on-chip serial
channels. With the security and peace of mind of ROM-based drivers,
updating Flash via In System Programming (ISP) over the CAN-bus provides
the whole range of functionality from programming blank parts in production
through changing system parameters to full in-field re-programmability.


Enabling Higher Code Density and Superior Performance

The LPC11C00 requires 40-50 percent smaller code size than 8/16 bit
microcontrollers for most common microcontroller tasks. This is enabled by
the powerful Cortex-M0 v6-M instruction set which is built on a fundamental
base of 16-bit Thumb instructions unique to 32-bit microcontrollers today.

With over 45 DMIPS of performance, the LPC11C00 series provides powerful
message and data handing for CAN device nodes together with a power
optimized solution unavailable with today
s 8-/16-bit microcontrollers.

Other key features of the LPC11C12/C14 include:
 50 MHz Cortex-M0 processor with SWD/debug (4 break-points)
 32 Vectored Interrupts; 4 priority levels; Dedicated Interrupts on up to 13 GPIOs
 CAN 2.0 B C_CAN controller with on-chip CANopen drivers
 UART, 2 SPI & I2C (FM+)
 Two 16-bit and 2 32-bit timers with PWM/Match/Capture and one 24-bit system timer
 12MHz Internal RC Oscillator with 1% accuracy over temperature and voltage
 Power-On-Reset (POR); Multi-level Brown-Out-Detect (BOD); 10-50 MHz Phase-Locked Loop (PLL)
 8-channel high precision 10-bit ADC with ±1LSB DNL
 42 fast 5V tolerant GPIO pins, high drive (20 mA) on select pins
 Single 1.8-3.6V power supply; 6.5kV ESD for rugged applications
