Discover the simplicity and high performance of Dual Core Cortex-M4, with flexible and configurable cores and peripherals
Learn how latest innovations in NXP's asymmetrical dual-core LPC4300 allow developers to maximize performance in signal processing and microcontroller applications including digital audio, industrial automation and motor control without adding additional costs. Providing almost twice the performance without the cost and complexity of typical dual-cores, the LPC4300's Cortex-M0 co-processor can offload many of the data movement and I/O handling duties that can drain the bandwidth of the powerful Cortex-M4 core. Additionally, NXP's unique configurable peripherals—such as the State Configurable Timer and Serial GPIO—can also offload processor bandwidth while providing maximum I/O flexibility to the developer.
What attendees will learn:
- the performance trade-offs between an ARM® Cortex™-M3, ARM® Cortex™-M4 and NXP's asymmetrical dual-core LPC4300 digital signal controller
- how a simple Inter Processor Communication (IPC) software module on the LPC4300 unlocks the performance of the two 32-bit ARM cores
- how to utilize smart and configurable peripherals to offload processor bandwidth demands, opening up new potential for microcontroller applications and reducing overall system costs
