16-bit general-purpose MCU'er med omfattende sikkerhedsfunktioner
LAPIS Semiconductor - der er en del af ROHM Group - har præsenteret en omfattende serie af 16-bit general-purpose microcontrollere, der sigter mod applikationer, der rækker fra home appliances til industrielt udstyr (in english).ROHM Group company LAPIS Semiconductor has announced the availability of the ML62Q1300/1500/1700 Group of general-purpose microcontrollers featuring an original 16-bit CPU core ideal for consumer and home appliances, alarms, security devices, and small industrial equipment.
In response, LAPIS Semiconductor's noise-tolerant ML62Q1300/1500/1700 Group provides safety features that correspond to 13 industry-leading items (IEC60730 regulations) related to home appliances, including a self-diagnostic function for detecting internal faults. This makes it possible to protect systems from unexpected situations that occur in MCUs used in the consumer electronics field which is becoming more sophisticated as well as the compact industrial equipment sector that requires stable operation even under harsh conditions such as extreme noise and high temperatures.
A broad lineup comprised of a class-leading 120 models in a number of different package types and program ROM capacities is offered, ensuring support for a wide range of applications. In addition, starter kits are available that make it easy to evaluate LCD operation and capacitive switch on an application level, as well as a reference board that allows users to develop customized application programs.
The starter kits and reference board are compatible with LAPIS Semiconductor's new LEXIDE-U16 development environment (available for download on LAPIS Semiconductor's website) operating under the open source Eclipse platform which features an easy-to-use interface and enhanced functionality, ensuring not only high development efficiency but also seamless compatibility with Eclipse environments from other companies.
The MCUs along with the ML62Q1000 Capacitive Switch Starter Kit and the ML62Q1367 reference board will be sold from March through online distributors, and others will be available in order.
