16-Bit Microcontrollers Feature Low Power Consumption

Mon, 09/22/2008 - 12:45pm


NEC Electronics America, Inc. introduces 22 16-bit all-Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) for compact, low-power, battery-operated and sensor-enabled systems. Based on a proprietary high-performance 16-bit 78K0R CPU core, the 78K0R/Kx3-L MCUs offer low power consumption to extend battery life and more on-chip integration to help reduce the size and cost of battery-driven and sensor-enabled systems such as fire and security alarms, meters, industrial sensors, anti-shake digital cameras, handheld medical diagnostics devices, and data-logging and point-of-sale terminals. In addition to low power consumption, the line-up offers high-performance on-chip oscillators, built-in circuits for sensor functions and extended system operating time. These MCUs also include a built-in dedicated booster circuit that reduces operating voltage during flash programming from 2.7 to 1.8 V, and it extends operating time in the end system.
