Jack Ganssle has just published the latest edition of his Embedded Muse newsletter with a very informative, hands-on look at the ARM Cortex-M4 and –M0 processor cores in the NXP LPC4350. In particular, Jack looked at processing speed and power … Continue reading
Would you like a guide to several new microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M series of processor cores?
Alban Rampon has just published a guide to many new developments surrounding the ARM Cortex-M series of microcontroller cores. The guide includes a discussion of Freescale Kinetis L microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ core; discussions of microcontrollers based on … Continue reading
Free Webinar on using Freescale Kinetis L series microcontrollers based on ARM Cortex-M0+ core. September 12. Hurry!
You have a little more than a day to register for the free Freescale Webinar on using the company’s Kinetis L microcontrollers based on the relatively new ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core. These are relatively new microcontrollers, just rolling out now, … Continue reading
Friday Video: Freescale pits Kinetis L microcontroller against parts from Microchip, TI, and Renesas. Guess who wins the low-power derby?
I’ve written a lot this week about the low-power Kinetis L microcontroller from Freescale, a low-power, mixed-signal IC design now shipping in alpha silicon. I have just found this new Freescale video, which was probably shot at this week’s Freescale … Continue reading
The Freescale Kinetis L microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core: But what do they do???
A couple of days ago, I wrote that Freescale had announced that it was shipping alpha samples of its new Kinetis L microcontroller, which is based on the 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core. (See “Freescale starts sampling $0.49 Kinetis L … Continue reading
Earlier this month at DAC, ARM, NXP, and Cadence hosted a panel on mixed-signal design as it applies to microcontroller design. Richard Goering posted a great summary of the topics discussed at the panel, but I want to tease out … Continue reading
There are two major reasons for reading this blog post: A 32-bit microcontroller that sells for as little as $0.49 in 10K quantities and consumes 50µA/MHz A $12.95 development board to be available late in September These are two of … Continue reading
Smart analog/mixed-signal IC designs are—er—smarter. Learn how to stuff a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M core into an AMS design at DAC. Lunch included
In these days of the SoC, one chip has to do it all. That means both analog and digital processing. Now you can get a first-hand look at how successful design teams have integrated ARM Cortex-M processor cores in their … Continue reading
Last week, ARM CPU Product Manager Thomas Ensergueix presented a Webinar on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core, which I’ve covered previously over on the Low-PowerDesign.com Web site http://www.low-powerdesign.com. (See “How low can you go? ARM does the limbo with Cortex-M0+ … Continue reading
With all I’ve written about the recent ARM M0+ processor core lately, I knew I had to include this video of a homebrew slingshot peripheral developed with a development board based on a microcontroller incorporating an ARM M0 core.
Last week at Design West in San Jose, Freescale demonstrated the first silicon realization of the low-power ARM Cortex-M0+ 32-bit RISC processor core in an engineering sample of the company’s brand-new Kinetis L microcontroller. (See “Freescale demonstrates first-pass Kinetis L … Continue reading
Freescale demonstrates first-pass Kinetis L silicon at Design West (The conference formerly known as the Embedded Systems Conference)
Two weeks ago, ARM introduced its new low-end Cortex-M0+ 32-bit processor core. At the same time, Freescale announced that it was planning on introducing a new line of Kinetis “L” low-power microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor. (See “How … Continue reading
Asymmetric, dual-core NXP LPC4300 microcontrollers split tasks between ARM Cortex-M4 and -M0 cores, cost $3.75 and up
NXP Semiconductors announced today that it is now shipping its first LPC4300 dual-core, ARM-based microcontroller—the LPC4350. This microcontroller family packs an asymmetrical pair of 32-bit RISC ARM Cores—an ARM Cortex-M4 and an ARM Cortex-M0—with both processors runing at 204MHz (up … Continue reading
Power, Performance, Cost. FDSOI lets you pick any three. Want proof? How about an ARM Cortex-M0 processor core example?
