Migrating from 8-bit to 32-bit MCUs
The Cortex-M0 core from ARM is a small 32-bit processor core enabling new products, such as the NXP's LPC1100L microcontroller family, to fit into smaller, lower power applications which had had previously only been practical with 8-bit microcontrollers. The LPC1100L family is changing how engineers think about design by saving power, reducing cost, shrinking designs and getting to market faster. This webinar will demonstrate two different designs, a CANopen relay driver and a LiIon battery charger, and an engineer's migration path on switching from 8-bit microcontrollers to a 32-bit NXP LPC1100L microcontroller. We will also discuss the design changes needed to complete the migration as well as the resulting benefits of reduced cost and power and enhanced performance.
What attendees will learn:
- Architectural overview of the Cortex-M0 architecture from ARM
- Overview of LPC1100L family of microcontrollers from NXP
- How to increase performance, save memory, use less power, save cost, and enhance features by migrating to 32-bit
- Necessary steps to migrate from an existing 8-bit design to an LPC1100L microcontroller
Who should attend?
- Application Engineers, Distributor Sales Engineers, Design/Hardware Engineers, Product Quality Engineers, Test Engineers, System Architects, Engineering Management
- Engineering Students
