NXP – 32-bit MCU : LPC1518 comes with motor-control firmware and an on-chip QEI

NXP Semiconductors’ LPC1518 microcontroller provides the features and functions needed to quickly and easily implement a high-precision motor-control system.

Based on the ARM® Cortex®-M3 processor, the LPC1518 has two 12-bit, 12-channel, 2Msamples/s ADCs and an on-chip quadrature encoder interface to enable highly accurate control of both sensored and sensorless motors. Four flexible state- onfigurable timer/PWM blocks provide up to 28 PWM channels.

NXP also offers efficient motor-control firmware, easy-to-use GUI-based tuning tools, and two new motor-control solution kits for the LPC1500 series of MCUs.
