The series of devices are Flash Memory A/D type 8-bit high performance RISC architecture microcontrollers, designed for applications which require an LCD interface.
For memory features, the Flash Memory offers users the convenience of multi-programming features. Other memory includes an area of RAM Data Memory as well as an area of true EEPROM memory for storage of non-volatile data such as serial numbers, calibration data etc. By using the In Application Programming technology, users have a convenient means to directly store their measured data in the Flash Program Memory as well as having the ability to easily update their application programs.
Analog features include a multi-channel 12-bit AD converter. Multiple and extremely flexible Timer Modules provide timing, pulse generation, capture input, compare match output and PWM generation functions. Communication with the outside world is catered for by including fully integrated SPI, I2C and UART interface functions, three popular interfaces which provide designers with a means of easy communication with external peripheral hardware. Protective features such as an internal Watchdog Timer, Low Voltage Reset and Low Voltage Detector coupled with excellent noise immunity and ESD protection ensure that reliable operation is maintained in hostile electrical environments.
A full choice of external, internal, high and low speed oscillators is provided including two fully integrated system oscillators which requires no external components for their implementation. The ability to operate and switch dynamically between a range of operating modes using different
clock sources gives users the ability to optimise microcontroller operation and minimize power
The inclusion of flexible I/O programming features, Time Base functions along with many other features ensure that the series of devices will find excellent use in applications such as electronic metering, environmental monitoring, handheld instruments, household appliances, electronically controlled tools, motor driving in addition to many others.
