NXP Introduces Longevity Program for ARM Cortex-M Microcontrollers

Eindhoven, Netherlands and San Jose, California, March 27, 2012 – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today launched a Product Longevity Program for its ARM® Cortex™-M microcontrollers with a minimum available period of 10 years. This program assures continuity and stability of supply for NXP customers, especially those that design industrial control applications and require long-term product availability.

“NXP already has a long-standing reputation as a reliable microcontroller supplier for periods of 10 years or more,” said Jan Jaap Bezemer, director of marketing, microcontroller business line, NXP Semiconductors. “This Product Longevity Program now formalizes our commitment of supply assurance to our customers and demonstrates our confidence in the long-term success of our microcontroller business.”

The first microcontrollers in this Product Longevity Program are from NXP’s Cortex-M0 family:

  • LPC1100XL, NXP’s lowest-current MCU with 110uA/MHz
  • LPC1100L in low-pin-count SO, TSSOP and DIP packages
  • LPC11U00, the first USB Cortex-M0 with integrated ROM drivers
  • LPC11C00 with on-chip CAN transceiver
  • LPC11E00 with integrated 4 KB EEPROM

Nano Pulse Control Clears Issues in the Automotive and Industrial Markets

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

In EV and industrial applications, converting from high voltages on the power side to low voltages on the electronics side poses a big challenge. In order to convert big voltage drops efficiently, you need very narrow pulse widths. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Satya Dixit from ROHM about new Nano Pulse Control technology that changes the game in DC to DC conversion.
