Latest from Philips
Target around $US1.60 in 10k TSSOP
Presumably "slightly more" in hobbyist quantities.
A very nice semi low end device.
2 cycle 8051 core (6 x original), 8K flash UART, 512B EEROM, 256 B RAM, 512
B auxiliary RAM, UART, SPI, IIC, PWM, RC Osc 12 kHz to 12 MHz, 1 uA
powerdown, wakeup on everything, 2 comparators, 23 I/O in 28 pin pkg (26
with RC int clk), 2 x 16 bit timers AND Realtime clock (can be used as
system timer), 20 mA drive all pins ....much more
Active low reset !!! - huzzah. None of the 8051 active high stupidities!
NO A/D - the greatest single omission IMO.
A worthy PIC competitor.
Real ICE available "any week now".
Slightly revised notes from a friend:
The presentation is especially well done:
Currently targeting US$1.60 @ 10k pcs for LPC932 in TSSOP28 package.
The roadmap shown in the presentation shows what the whole family will look
before too long.
Of course there will be a very good emulator available (plus a few toy
The PDS900 will also function as a device programmer.
