Product data sheet
1. General description
The LPC540xx/LPC54S0xx is a family of ARM Cortex-M4 based microcontrollers for
embedded applications featuring a rich peripheral set with very low power consumption
and enhanced debug features.
The ARM Cortex-M4 is a 32-bit core that offers system enhancements such as low power
consumption, enhanced debug features, and a high level of support block integration. The
ARM Cortex-M4 CPU incorporates a 3-stage pipeline, uses a Harvard architecture with
separate local instruction and data buses as well as a third bus for peripherals, and
includes an internal prefetch unit that supports speculative branching. The ARM
Cortex-M4 supports single-cycle digital signal processing and SIMD instructions. A
hardware floating-point processor is integrated into the core.
The LPC540xx/LPC54S0xx family includes 360 KB of on-chip SRAM, a quad SPI Flash
Interface (SPIFI) for expanding program memory, one high-speed and one full-speed USB
host and device controller, Ethernet AVB, LCD controller, Smart Card Interfaces,
SD/MMC, CAN FD, an External Memory Controller (EMC), a DMIC subsystem with PDM
microphone interface and I2S, five general-purpose timers, SCTimer/PWM, RTC/alarm
timer, Multi-Rate Timer (MRT), a Windowed Watchdog Timer (WWDT), ten flexible serial
communication peripherals (USART, SPI, I2S, I2C interface), Secure Hash Algorithm
(SHA), AES-256 engine, Physical Unclonable Function (PUF), secure boot features,
12-bit 5.0 Msamples/sec ADC, and a temperature sensor.
