Silicon Laboratories is further expanding its family of pipelined 8051 MCU cores and devices with the addition of four new memory option devices.
Pin compatible with earlier devices the company has introduced, the new C8051F332 devices feature 25 MIPS throughput, 2 to 8 kBtyes of Flash and 768 B RAM in a 4 x 4 mm package. The devices integrate on-chip peripherals such as a 10-bit 200 ksps ADC, temperature sensor, voltage reference and comparator.
The C8051F332 product family also incorporates a two percent accurate precision internal oscillator eliminating the need for an external crystal or resonator. On-board serial communication peripherals include UART, SMBus and SPI bus serial ports.
Also included on chip is two-wire debug circuitry that provides non-intrusive, fullspeed, in-circuit debugging of the production part before and after installation with no emulator required.
The C8051F332 is packaged in a 20-pin QFN and pricing begins at $1.38 in quantities of 10,000. A complete, low-cost professional development kit that includes an IDE, target board, cables and power supply is available for $99.
