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.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
