NXP unveils longevity program for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers

March 28, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
NXP Semiconductors N.V. has launched a Product Longevity Program for its ARM Cortex -M microcontrollers with a minimum available period of 10 years. The program will assure continuity and stability of supply for NXP customers, especially those that design industrial control applications and require long-term product availability.

“NXP already has a long-standing reputation as a reliable microcontroller supplier for periods of 10 years or more, ” said Jan Jaap Bezemer, director of marketing, microcontroller business line, NXP Semico nductors. “This Product Longevity Program now formalizes our commitment of supply assurance to our customers and demonstrates our confidence in the long-term success of our microcontroller business.”

The first microcontrollers in this Product Longevity Program are from NXP’s Cortex-M0 family:

  • LPC1100XL, NXP’s lowest-current MCU with 110 µA/MHz
  • LPC1100L in low-pin-count SO, TSSOP and DIP packages
  • LPC11U00, the first USB Cortex-M0 with integrated ROM drivers
  • LPC11C00 with on-chip CAN transceiver
  • LPC11E00 with integrated 4 KB EEPROM
