Low Power Microcontrollers for Managing Sensors, Collecting, and Analyzing Data
The ML610Q79x devices have been specifically designed to manage, collect, and analyze data from a vast array of environmental sensors. These devices can be used as a pre-processor to a more powerful host processor, or as the main processor in many kinds of designs. ML610Q79x devices are designed to be used in many of the nodes that are going to be developed to satisfy the needs of the Internet of Things (IoT). Consuming 0.6uA at halt and less than 1 mA at full speed operation, these devices can manage sensors with I2C, SPI, and analog interfaces, process data at 4 MHz using an 8 Bit RISC processing core and a 16 bit Multiplication, Division, and Square Root co-processor, and interface to the rest of a system with General Purpose I/O. The ML610Q79x have 64K of FLASH for program storage, 4K of RAM for program use and 8K of RAM for logged data that can be directly accessed by a Host over I2C or SPI. The ML610Q793 is available in a die sized, ultra thin, 48 pin WCSP package and the ML610Q974G is available in a 48QFP package.
ML610Q79x Development Tools
LAPIS Semiconductor has developed a Software Development Kit (SDK) which includes a development board, a nanoEase Debugger pod, and the software required to simultaneously manage and sample the 3 axis digital output accelerometer, digital temperature and humidity sensor, analog hall-effect sensor, and the analog ambient light and human proximity sensors that are on the board. Modifications to the sample code and additional application code for your application can be developed using code development tools provided by LAPIS Semiconductor. The code development tools include, an Integrated Design Environment (IDE), "C" compiler and assembler, Simulator, and Debugger. More information about the design environment is available here
Mini Low Power Microcontrollers Ideal for Industrial and White Goods Applications
The ML610Q100 series of microcontrollers features wide supply voltage, input voltage, and temperature ranges, low power consumption, and high electrical noise immunity, making them well-suited for industrial equipment and white goods.
High performance is achieved with minimal power consumption using LAPIS Semiconductor's market-proven 8bit RISC U8 CPU core, along with advanced design and fabrication processes.
These microcontrollers can be used in traditionally electrically noisy applications, including motor control, energy harvesting sensors and nodes, audio and speech control, smoke and fire detection, security and access control, battery management, home appliances, lighting control, power monitoring and metering, and other embedded designs – due to their superior noise immunity. In addition, integrated voltage regulation and timing reference circuits reduce system level costs and board area while decreasing the number of external components required. The first models available in this family are the ML610Q101 and ML610Q102, which incorporate 4K and 6K bytes of flash memory, respectively, and are offered in 16pin SSOP and WQFN packages.
Low-Power Microcontroller Series Featuring RC Analog-to-Digital Converters
The ML610Q4xx series are low-power microcontrollers that feature a unique sensor interface designed to provide comprehensive control of small battery-powered devices used for the measurement and display of temperature, humidity, and carbon monoxide in industrial and commercial environments – while simplifying component count, minimizing costs, and reducing power.
These 8bit microcontrollers employ an RC-type analog-to-digital converter (ADC), ensuring accurate (±1.0°C) temperature measurement using only passive components. RC-type ADCs simplify the external circuitry and software necessary to perform measurements and require less power than systems utilizing a separate ADC to convert sensor input. Two different models are available, integrating either masked ROM or field-programmable non-volatile flash memory to store program data for control of the display, user interface, and communication ports and for performing measurements.
