Fujitsu targets Asian consumer electronics market with 8-bit Microcontrollers

MUMBAI: Fujitsu Microelectronics Asia Pte Ltd (FMAL) has announced the new 8-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) series developed for consumer electronics and home appliances. The new series of high-performance 8-bit MCUs are the latest additions to the Fujitsu F?MC-8FX family.



"Many home appliances and automotive products today are evolving from analog to digital control, and 8-bit MCU remains the most cost-effective solution. To meet these emerging market opportunities, Fujitsu has developed an impressive product portfolio which has key concepts like high performance, low power, as low-cost powerful tools with versatile peripherals." said FMAL marketing general manager Andy Chang.



According to an official release, this series has been launched in response to the growing demand for consumer electronics and appliances that offer low power consumption and high performance. It uses merely one-fifth the power, yet offers five times the processing capacity of earlier Fujitsu products. It has designed for use with both 5V and 3V power supplies, and offers functionality at a wide range of voltages to accommodate a variety of power-supply designs.

Features like flash memory, analog-to-digital converter, interrupts, 16-bit timers and pulse width modulation output, along with support for UART, LIN and I2C interfaces are a part of the 8FX series. These features are designed to suit the various application requirements.



In addition, Fujitsu provides a proprietary software called Softune IDE which can debug, simulate, emulate and edit the program code. This software supports both ANSI C and Assembly Language. When both languages are used on the same file, Softune will compile them seamlessly, adds the release.

Also, in order to support the development environment of the MCUs, Fujitsu is providing an evaluation board and developer's kit that works with the entire F?MC-8FX family, providing a single environment for development and evaluation.
