EINDHOVEN, Netherlands--(BUSINESS WIRE)—NXP today confirmed that the LPC1700 series is the industry’s highest performance Cortex-M3 microcontroller, based on results from the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC). The EEMBC results show that the LPC1700 executes application code on average 35% faster than the leading Cortex-M3 competitors when running at the same clock speeds.

NXP’s performance advantage is even greater when the LPC1700 runs at higher clock speeds. The LPC1700 has been certified by EEMBC at 72,100, and 120 MHz. This increased speed and efficiency is due to the intelligent architecture of the microcontroller, its use of flexible direct memory access (DMA) and best-in-market Flash. The LPC1700 series is targeted to operate high-bandwidth communications peripherals such as Ethernet, USB On-The-Go/Host/Device and CAN simultaneously with no bottle-necks. It is designed for use in a wide variety of applications, including eMetering, lighting, industrial networking, alarm systems, white goods and motor control.
