Single-Chip Real-Time MCUs Offer 10/100 Mbps Ethernet with CAN Connectivity
Luminary Micro introduced 34 Stellaris microcontrollers (MCUs) that bring networking and expanded control capabilities for real-time applications in motion control, fire and security, remote sensing, HVAC and building controls, power and energy monitoring and conversion, network appliances and switches, factory automation, electronic point-of-sale machines, test and measurement equipment, medical instrumentation and gaming equipment. The LM3S1000 series features new combinations of expanded general purpose I/O, larger on-chip memory, and low-power optimization for battery-backed applications. The series features a fully-integrated 10/100 Mbps Ethernet with Controller Area Network (CAN) connectivity in a single-chip system with ARM architecture compatibility. The LM3S8000 devices combine both Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and Physical (PHY) layers with up to three CAN interfaces on-chip.
