The LPC55S6x MCU family brings to market advancements that stretch far beyond a new core technology, including advanced energy efficiency and real-time performance with breakthroughs in embedded security and protection, in addition, exceptional mixed-signal integration, leveraging NXP’s cost effective 40nm embedded flash technology.
The LPC55S6x MCU family builds on the world’s first general purpose Cortex-M33 based microcontroller as the first family introduced as part of NXP’s new LPC5500 MCU series. This high efficiency family leverages the latest Armv8-M architecture, introducing new levels of performance and advanced security capabilities including TrustZone and co-processor extensions. The LPC55S6x MCU family enables these co-processors extensions and leverages them to bring significant signal processing efficiency gains from a proprietary DSP accelerator offering a 10x clock cycle reduction. An optional second Cortex-M33 core offers flexibility to balance high performance and power efficiency.
As part of the LPC5500 MCU series which provides a comprehensive offering, scalable options and several families, the LPC55S6x MCU family, like its related members, benefits from 40nm NVM based process technology cost advantages, broad scalable packages and memory options, as well as a robust enablement including MCUXpresso Software and Tools ecosystem and low-cost development boards.
The LPC55S6x MCU devices feature a unique integrated security ecosystem providing layers of protection for embedded systems while protecting end products from unknown or unexpected threats over its life cycle, including SRAM PUF based root of trust and provisioning, real-time execution from encrypted images and debug authentication. Furthermore, the LPC55S6x MCU family series introduces additional features from Armv8-M TrustZone providing a level of isolation within the MCU that creates trusted execution environment with full access to the system memory map and rich execution environment with no access to security critical registers and data.
