SINGAPORE: Fujitsu Microelectronics Asia Pte Ltd (FMAL) has announced the MB95330H series to expand its line-up of low pin count microcontrollers, for its F2MC-8FX family of high-performance 8-bit microcontrollers with flash memory.
The new series features a brushless DC motor control function, and starts with six new products. This will satisfy the needs for low pin count microcontrollers with brushless DC motor control for consumer appliances and small electric tools, such as electric drills. Samples of the new series will be available from the end of March 2010, with mass-production in June 2010.
In recent years, there has been rapidly-increasing demand in Japan and other parts of Asia for 8-bit microcontrollers with brushless DC motor control for small system control use, for home applications, OA equipment and industrial instruments. In response to these needs, Fujitsu Microelectronics has added the MB95330H series, which features a brushless DC motor control function with only 32 pins, to its F2MC-8FX family.
This new series features various timers for general-purpose and communication functions, besides the brushless DC motor control function. Thus, it is suitable for use not only as a main microcontroller, but also as a sub-microcontroller which covers lack of features of the existing system configuration.
In addition, the series employs 1-line on-chip debug which uses only one pin on the microcontroller and embedded oscillation circuit, etc. These enable maximizing the number of pins to be used freely, and reduction of total system cost for customers.
