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.
The series now can interface with a wider array of EtherNet/IP-compliant hardware across many industrial sectors, including factory automation systems, plastic injection molding apparatus, and materials-handling equipment.
