NXP Semiconductors LPC540xx

A flashless MCU solution with a 180-MHz Cortex-M4 core, with integrated SRAM

NXP Semiconductors LPC540xx image

Offering flashless design and security, the LPC540xx family combines a 180 MHz Arm Cortex-M4 with a power-efficient architecture, advanced HMI and communication peripherals for real-time performance in the next-generation IoT.

The LPC540xx provides the ability to adapt as requirements change. Compatibility within the LPC54000 series enables to provide a seamless migration path for increasing processing and additional advanced peripherals.

For added security, the LPC54S0xx MCUs provide hardware AES engine to protect the image and accelerate processing for data integrity and proof of origin.
