New at Mouser: NXP Semiconductors MCX Microcontrollers for Intelligent Motor Control and Machine Learning Applications

by gabi

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now shipping the MCX industrial and IoT microcontrollers (MCUs) from NXP Semiconductors. These new MCUs are high-performance, low-power microcontrollers with intelligent peripherals and accelerators for secure, intelligent motor control and machine-learning applications.

NXP’s new MCX N series microcontrollers, available from Mouser, are powered by Arm® Cortex®-M33 CPUs, with hardware-accelerated peripherals, communications, and signal processing for scalability and ease of development. The MCX N’s low-power cache boosts system performance, while the dual-bank flash and full ECC RAM safety support system enhances security. Select MCX N devices include NXP’s eIQ® Neutron neural processing unit (NPU) for machine learning applications. The MCX N series also includes EdgeLock® Secure Enclave, Core Profile, offering a secure-by-design approach for secure boot with an immutable root-of-trust and hardware-accelerated cryptography.

The NXP MCX A series microcontrollers, also available from Mouser, facilitate smaller package and board designs with scalable device options, low power, and intelligent peripherals. Designed to support more GPIO pins for additional external connections and operating up to 96MHz with high levels of analogue integration, the MCX A series boasts a wide range of peripherals, including timers delivering three complementary pulse width manipulation (PWM) pairs with deadband insertion, (4Msps 12-bit ADC) together with hardware windowing and averaging features. The MCX A series delivers critical functionality to system performance with an innovative power architecture designed to sustain high utilisation of I/O and power efficiency with a simple supply circuit in a smaller footprint.

NXP Semiconductors FRDM-MCXN947 and FRDM-MCXA153 Fast Retrieval and Data Manipulator (FRDM) development boards are low-cost, compact, and scalable development platforms for rapid prototyping using the MCUXpresso development tools. The FRDM-MCXN947 features the MCX N series, addressing a wide range of applications featuring high levels of integration, on-chip accelerators, intelligent peripherals, and advanced security. The FRDM-MCXA153 features the MCX A series with scalable device options, low power, and intelligent peripherals.
