The Lotus platform features several new capabilities that enhance the overall functionality of MEMSIC’s wireless sensor networking products. Lotus is based on the NXP LPC1758. The LPC17xx is 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 based microcontroller for embedded applications featuring a high level of integration and low power consumption. A single processor board can be configured to run your sensor application/processing and the network/radio communications stack simultaneously. The Lotus 51-pin expansion connector supports Analog Inputs, Digital I/O, I2C, SPI and UART interfaces. These interfaces make it easy to connect to a wide variety of external peripherals.
