Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation announced
it is now stocking NXP'sLPC11C00
series, starting with the LPC11C14, a Controller Area Network (CAN)
2.0B-compliant controller for industrial and embedded networking applications.
CAN has long been considered one of the best choices for robust, real-time
communication, the price has been prohibitive for low-cost embedded
applications. With the introduction of the LPC11C00 series, NXP now provides a
new low-cost entry point and total CAN solution that reduces product
development risk, lowers total system cost, and speeds time to market for
high-performance embedded designs. Additionally, by incorporating CAN and
CANopen drivers in on-chip ROM, the LPC11C00 series provides design engineers
with easy-to-use API commands to the CANopen protocol, enabling rapid
integration into CAN-based networks.
In a move that strengthens its 3D design business, Stratasys continued a 15-month buying spree this week by announcing its plan to acquire GrabCAD, a provider of a cloud-based collaboration environment for engineers.
Many diverse markets take advantage of semiconductor IP; so many that no one can recite the entire list without leaving off several. So why do we track all the vertical markets? They all have a unique set of requirements and value attributes differently. One major vertical market segment is automotive.
