The LPC1759 is a Cortex-M3 microcontroller for embedded applications featuring a high level of integration and low power consumption at frequencies of 120 MHz
Product data sheet
7.11 Ethernet (LPC1758 only)
Additionally, any pin on Port 0 and Port 2 (total of 42 pins) providing a digital function can
be programmed to generate an interrupt on a rising edge, a falling edge, or both. The
edge detection is asynchronous, so it may operate when clocks are not present such as
during Power-down mode. Each enabled interrupt can be used to wake up the chip from
The Ethernet block contains a full featured 10 Mbit/s or 100 Mbit/s Ethernet MAC
designed to provide optimized performance through the use of DMA hardware
acceleration. Features include a generous suite of control registers, half or full duplex
operation, flow control, control frames, hardware acceleration for transmit retry, receive
packet filtering and wake-up on LAN activity. Automatic frame transmission and reception
with scatter-gather DMA off-loads many operations from the CPU.
The Ethernet block and the CPU share the ARM Cortex-M3 D-code and system bus
through the AHB-multilayer matrix to access the various on-chip SRAM blocks for
Ethernet data, control, and status information.
The Ethernet block interfaces between an off-chip Ethernet PHY using the Reduced MII
(RMII) protocol and the on-chip Media Independent Interface Management (MIIM) serial
The Ethernet block supports bus clock rates of up to 100 MHz.
Bit level set and clear registers allow a single instruction to set or clear any number of
bits in one port.
Direction control of individual bits.
All I/O default to inputs after reset.
Pull-up/pull-down resistor configuration and open-drain configuration can be
programmed through the pin connect block for each GPIO pin.
