Eindhoven, Netherlands: In a move to meet critical requirements for battery-powered applications, NXP has debuted the world’s first ARM Cortex-M0 MCU with a dual supply voltage (see the figure). The LPC1100V’s supply voltage is 1.65 to 1.95 VDD and 1.65 to 3.6 VIO, and it offers 50 MIPS performance in a 2- by 2-mm footprint wafer-level chip-scale package (WLCSP).
Proprietary embedded flash with a 256-byte erase sector and low leakage current enable the LPC1100LV to handle linear current consumption at low clock frequency while reducing system power. The device consumes just 1.6 µA in deep-sleep mode and has a 5-µs wakeup time.
Also available in a 5- by 5-mm heatsink very thin quad flat-pack no-leads (HVQFN) package and offering 1.8-VDD and 3.3-VIO dual-voltage inputs for CPU and I/O, this option offers a level-shifting capability between SSP/SPI (3.3 V) and I2C (1.8 V). NXP also offers customised combinations of SRAM, flash, and package for high-volume customers.
