NXP Cortex-M0 microcontrollers in TSSOP and SO packages

Posted on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 in ARM, components by DP

NXP Semiconductors announced a new 32bit Cortex M0 microcontroller in low-pin-count packages. SOIC, TSSOP, and DIP versions are currently available for their LPC111x devices. With Microchip also planing to release their PIC32 devices in similar packages, hobbyists will now have a choice of 32bit uCs in DIY friendly packages.

    Yeah but the USB enabled versions of the NXP chips are only available in BGA. Microchip wins here.

      wait,no.Theres the LPC series,where lots(theres the LPC11U14,1768,2366,2148 and many more) of them are in TQFP or similar.

      • JTR says:

        My bad, I mistook that the fact that BGA package was highlighted as a feature to mean that they only come in this package.

        Thanks for the correction. I serious decision to be made as to which way I go with 32-bits and USB.

    What happened to Microchips patent infringement suit against Luminary’s 28pin 32bit chips? I can’t find the specifics, but AFAIK Microchip was allowed a patent or 3 for 28 pin 32bit processors – that’s the US Patent office for you.
