8-bit and 16-bit MCUs with extremely low standby power

Ideally suited for battery-operated systems

Stuttgart, (PresseBox) - Gleichmann Electronics presents six new derivatives of the 78K0/KY2-L and 78K0/KA2-L 8-bit microcontroller families and six extremely low power consumtion 16-bit MCUs of the 78K0R-KF3-L and 78K0R/KG3-L series in Hall 9, Stand 235 at embedded world 2009.

The new 8-bit MCUs, manufactured by NEC Electronics, feature a standby current consumption of just 0.7 µA and a low operating current of 260 µA at 1 MHz clock frequency. Moreover, an integrated high-speed oscillator, as well as further diverse peripheral units such as A/D converter and operational amplifier, helps the user to reduce additional external components.

Thanks to an integrated high-speed A/D converter with many analog inputs, the 16-bit versions are optimally suited for battery-operated sensor applications. The MCUs have a current consumption of 1.0 µA in standby mode with active watchdog and 6.8 mA at the maximum operating frequency of 20 MHz. An additional benefit: Because of the integrated voltage amplifier, just 1.8 V is needed for rewriting of flash memories. Thereby, a battery-fed power supply is sufficient for the reprogramming of mobile devices.

Mass production of the new 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers is scheduled to begin in Summer 2009.

MSC Technologies GmbH

Founded in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, in the same company group with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, has established itself as one of the leading pan-European distributors of electronic assemblies and components. One of the reasons for the high acceptance by customers and suppliers is the company's early focus on comparatively few, highly sophisticated products such as microcontrollers, programmable logic devices, displays and customer specific power supplies. From this, the resulting in-depth technical know-how of our sales engineers and field application engineers today enables us, if required by the customer, even implementation of complete new designs right up to the finished product. With two of its own ASIC design centers, the Gleichmann research laboratory in Austria and one of the largest and most modern programming centers in Europe, Gleichmann Electronics takes a leading role in terms of service and customer support.
