San Jose, Calif.Zilog has added to its Z8 Encore! XP line the Z8F083A series of flash MCUs, which are priced in the range of 60 cents to $1.10 each in production quantities.
The 8-bit MCUs in the Z8F083A series provide the fundamental features required for electric fans and universal motor control. According to Zilog, the devices integrate 2.5 times faster internal precision oscillator and five-times-faster A/D converter over competing products in its class, resulting in faster response times for critical motor control loop operations.
The series offers a single-pin On-Chip Debugger (OCD) port for in-system flash programming and debugging.
The Z8 Encore! XP F083A flash 8-bit MCUs are based on the eZ8 CPU core, an architecture that rivals the performance of a 16-bit CPU core. The family supports up to 8 Kbytes of flash memory, 256 bytes of register RAM, and is pin-for-pin compatible with other members of the Z8 Encore! XP family, allowing an easy migration path from 1 Kbytes up to 12 Kbytes.
Pricing: Range from $0.60 to $1.10 USD.
