Nuremberg, Germany – At Embedded World show here, Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) introduced an expansion to its F2MC-8FX family of low-cost, low pin count MCUs for use in such apps as industrial, medical and consumer designs.
According to the company, the MB95330K is the first Fujitsu 32-pin, 8-bit MCU series to feature motor control functionality. With fast processing, low power consumption and three-phase motor control timers, the devices are targeted for use in a wide range of industrial, medical and consumer applications.
The series is powered by Fujitsu's proprietary 8FX CPU core and features embedded dual-operation flash memory with support for E2PROM emulation to allow a reduction in system area and system cost, as an external E2PROM is not required.
Fujitsu's embedded flash memory is designed to be re-written 100,000 times and is guaranteed to hold data for 20 years. A flash security function protects customers' software from being read by unauthorised external programs.
A precise RC oscillator (+/-2%) and low-voltage detection circuit built into the MCUs eliminates the need for an external oscillator and reset IC, thus contributing further to a reduction in overall system costs. The new series also employs single-line on-chip debug and includes an I2C interface.
The MB95330K series will feature derivatives in 32-pin LQFP, SDIP and QFN packages, and be available with 8, 12 or 20kB of flash memory and 240, 496 or 1008B of RAM. Engineering samples will be available from April 2010 with volume production starting in June 2010. To learn more, go to www.fujitsu.com.
