NXP Semiconductors introduced the K32 microcontroller (MCU) series to advance the energy efficiency of real-time embedded applications and enable advanced security with physical tamper protection in a wide range of Industrial and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. The power-efficient K32 MCUs complement the recently launched performance efficient LPC5500 MCU series.
The K32 series targets; energy efficiency for low duty cycle applications with wide operating voltage range, ultra-low leakage power modes that support full SRAM retention and fast wake-up; purpose-built high-performance mixed-signal (HPMS) with architectural improvements for power optimisation and advanced embedded security for device authentication, confidentiality, and physical tamper detection and resistance.
First to launch in the series is the K32 L3 family, a 72MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4 based MCU with an optional Cortex-M0+. The device offers up to 1.25MB flash and 384KB SRAM with numerous serial communication interfaces, 12-bit 1MSPS ADC, 10-bit DAC and comparator, 32-bit PWM timer modules, and an external memory controller for flexible expansion.
