ARM7 micros with 2x Flash capacity from Nu Horizons

ARM7 micros with 2x Flash capacity from Nu Horizons
Nu Horizons is now stocking the AT91SAM7S, SAM7X and SAM7XC processors from Atmel. These ARM7TDMI processors are now available with 512Kbytes of Flash memory, double the previous capacity. This means that software engineers can integrate new features through in-application programming. The price premium for this doubled capacity is less than 20%.

8-pin Microcontroller Family with Increased Memory and System Features

STMicroelectronics has completed its ST7 UltraLite family of tiny 8-pin microcontrollers – intended for simple and very cost-sensitive applications – with the introduction of the ST7FLITEU0 series, which adds more memory and valuable system features to the rich peripheral set of the existing devices. Its availability in 8-pin SO, DIP and 0.9mm-thick DFN packages, with temperature qualification up to 125 degrees C, makes the new series an ideal choice for HVAC home appliance, lighting control and power-tool markets.

MCUs Reduce Component Count for One and Multi-phase Metering

MCUs Reduce Component Count for One and Multi-phase Metering
As utility companies adopt electronic-based meter reading technology to reduce costs while offering new services and energy-saving consumer options, Texas Instruments has announced the sampling of its 16 MHz MSP430F47x4 ultra-low power microcontrollers (MCU) for one- and multi-phase metering. By integrating up to four individual 16-bit sigma delta analog to digital converters (ADCs), a 32x32-bit hardware multiplier, a 160 segment LCD driver with contrast control, up to 60 KB of flash memory and a real time clock (RTC), the F47x4 devices enable a five-to-one reduction in system components. TI's utility metering portfolio also includes devices targeted at water and gas metering, as well as power line communications (PLC) and radio frequency (RF) interfaces for automated meter reading (AMR).

AVR micros for USB applications allow direct in-system programming

AVR micros for USB applications allow direct in-system programming
Available from Nu Horizons, Atmel’s latest 8-bit AVR micros, dubbed the AT90USB82 and AT90USB162 feature a 12 Mbits/s controller and 8 or 16 Kbytes of memory respectively. The memory can be programmed in-system directly through the USB interface and on-chip EEPROM of 512 bytes enables parameters to be set without interference to the application. This simplifies manufacturing, cuts costs and reduces equipment size because the programme can be loaded at the end of the production line without the need for a dedicated in-system programming connector. Programming takes under 0.15s for 4KB and under 0.5s for 12KB. Communication with external components is via an SPI and UART interface and a 100mA on-chip voltage regulator can also power companion devices such as RF transceivers for wireless adapters or laser sensors for high-performance mice.

16-bit Microcontrollers with 64 Kbytes of Flash in 28-pin Packages

16-bit Microcontrollers with 64 Kbytes of Flash in 28-pin Packages
Microchip announces eight new members of its PIC24F 16-bit microcontroller family, with up to 64 Kbytes of Flash program memory and up to 8 Kbytes of RAM, in smaller, lower cost, 28- and 44-pin packages including a tiny 6x6 mm 28-pin QFN package option. The 28 and 44-pin PIC24FJ64GA004 family contains a similar peripheral set to the 100-pin PIC24FJ128GA family. “Peripheral Pin Select” pin-mapping allows designers to use the available pins exactly as they like. For many applications, this can allow the use of a smaller, more cost-effective microcontroller. The wide range of on-board peripherals includes two independent channels each of I2C UART and SPI communications.

Analog Devices expands its Blackfin processor family

Analog Devices expands its Blackfin processor family
Analog Devices is expanding its Blackfin line with the ADSP-BF52x family, a scalable series of processors optimised for performance-demanding portable applications including portable media players (PMPs), voice over IP (VoIP) phones, IP cameras, and mobile TV devices. Advancing the Dynamic Power Management capabilities of Blackfin to achieve the line's best power efficiency yet (as low as 0.16mW/MHz core power at 250MHz) these newest processors offer system designers a breadth of choice with a high-performance/low-power series (ADSP-BF527/BF525/BF522) operating at 600MHz, and an ultra-low-power series running at up to 400MHz.
