RFID- and NFC-Enabled Smart Washing Machine Detects Fabric, Supports Remote Maintenance

RFID- and NFC-Enabled Smart Washing Machine Detects Fabric, Supports Remote Maintenance

User interface and system management for complex washing programs. Washing machines today offer consumers a wide range of settings for different temperatures, cycles and fabric types, all controlled via a single board. The NXP demonstrator features the LPC1227 , a robust 32-bit microcontroller based on the low-gate-count ARM® Cortex™-M0 platform. The LPC1227 provides significantly higher performance and functionality compared to 8-bit MCUs - with up to 50-percent better code density - enabling the same NXP microcontroller to be used not only for system management, but also to run software stacks for power monitoring, NFC and RFID. It also features an internal RC oscillator with one-percent accuracy. Reliable motor and load control. The same LPC1227 microcontroller is used to drive and control multiple loads in the washing machine, including the motor. As part of the demo, ...
