High-Performance 16-bit Microcontroller and DSC Families from Microchip
Microchip has announced two high-performance (40MIPS), low pin count (18- and 28-pin) 16-bit product families – the PIC24HJ12GP family of microcontrollers and the dsPIC33FJ12GP family of Digital Signal Controllers. Both families feature Peripheral Pin Select capability, which allows designers to re-map digital I/O – allowing designers to use smaller pin count devices, minimise board space, and optimise board layout to reduce noise.
FRAM-enhanced MCU family enhanced with industry standard 8051-based drop-in
Ramtron International has launched the VRS51L3174, an 8051-based microcontroller with 8 kilobytes (KB) of non-volatile FRAM memory that drops into industry standard 44-pin QFP sockets for easy device migration. Ramtron has added FRAM to its fast and flexible Versa 8051s for a quick and reliable non-volatile data storage and processing system that, the company says, only a FRAM-Enhanced MCU can provide.
Atmel micro offers 80 MIPS performance at 40mA from new AVR32 UC core
Nu Horizons announces availability of the AVR32 UC3A, the first microcontroller based on Atmel’s new AVR32 UC core.
