Say goodbye to batteries: energy consumption for a microcontroller

Say goodbye to batteries: energy consumption for a microcontroller
CSEM and Mie Fujitsu Semiconductor (MIFS) have joined forces to develop a near-threshold 0.5V ecosystem; since energy scales with the square of the supply voltage, huge reductions in energy consumption can be achieved for similar performance. MIFS’ Deeply Depleted Channel (DDC) technology is perfectly adapted to low power applications, while its immunity to random dopant fluctuations makes it suitable for low voltage operation.

Less is more: Sizing up micro-electronic moulding trends

Less is more: Sizing up micro-electronic moulding trends
Every computer, audio device, smart phone, digital camera requires plastic housings, circuit boards and wiring to function. And as electrical, communication and information devices shrink and get lighter, so too does the size of the components contained inside.  By Nigel Flowers, Managing Director, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag UK

System basis chip with integrated CAN FD controller and transceiver

System basis chip with integrated CAN FD controller and transceiver
Texas Instruments has introduced an automotive system basis chip that is, according to the company, the industry’s first to integrate a controller and transceiver for Controller Area Network with Flexible Data Rate (CAN FD). Designed to meet the high bandwidth and data rate flexibility needs of in-vehicle networks, the TCAN4550-Q1 uses the SPI bus of almost any microcontroller to implement, with minimal hardware changes, a CAN FD interface or increase the amount of CAN FD bus ports in a system.
