September 28, 2018 by Mouser Electronics

NXP’s LPC8N04 is an MCU with integrated NFC connectivity and energy harvesting capabilities.

This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.


NXP’s LPC8N04 is an MCU with integrated NFC connectivity and energy harvesting capabilities. The MCU can be activated by and harvest energy from the NFC interface, supports OTA firmware updates, and it requires minimal external components, enabling small, battery-free devices and seamless updates or customization in production. The MCU is based on Arm Cortex-M0+ with selectable core frequency up to 8MHz and has an integrated PMU, peripheral power-gating, and various reduced power modes for ultra-low power consumption, including a battery-off mode that consumes less than 50nA. The LPC8N04 integrates 8MHz and 32kHz oscillators, a temperature sensor with ±1.5°C absolute accuracy, and each device has a unique serial number for identification.

  • Supports NFC activation, energy harvesting, and OTA firmware updates
