Nuvoton Technology, one of the world's leading suppliers of microcontrollers, has proudly launched its MUG51 8-bit MCU series of low power microcontrollers designed for battery-free devices.

Nuvoton is committed to sustainable 8-bit MCU production and product longevity to ensure a reliable supply, giving customers the confidence to commit to long-term products, platforms, and projects.

New MUG51 Series 8-BIT low power MCU for battery-free devices

The low power MUG51 series incorporates an 1T 8051 core microcontroller operating at 7.37MHz, plus 16KB Flash APROM and 1KB SRAM memory within the chip. The MUG51 series supports special design power-on and resume, requiring a start-up current of just 200μA after power-on and before Flash memory initialisation, while a normal operating mode uses less than 1.3mA. In sleep-mode, it uses less than 1μA. To meet flexible application design demands that minimise platform size and cost, the MUG51 series provides a rich set of peripherals including GPIO with an internal inverter, 16-bit timers, 12-bit ADC, 16-bit PWM, UART, I2C, SPI, two rail-to-rail comparators (ACMP) for stylus pen pressure measurement, and an ISO 7816-3 Smart Card interface can also configure as UART transmission. For applications that experience extreme conditions it supports a wide operating voltage range of 1.8-5.5V, and wide operating temperature of –40°C to 105°C, plus high resistance to electrostatic shock with EFT ±4.4 kV and ESD HBM ±7 kV.

Extensive 8-BIT MCU options for diverse applications

Nuvoton offers one of the industry’s broadest 8-bit MCU product portfolios and it continues to invest in developing new technologies and silicon products in response to ever changing market and customer needs, and application trends.
