What is this different from MCU crowded with analog functions? I think nowadays many MCU has included most of the analog components described in this article.

Hi Terry - The family of PAC devices from Active-Semi have a set of custom-designed Analog peripherals that are meaningful for specific consumer electronics and industrial control applications. For example, for high-voltage drive and control applications there are the industry's first integrated 600V gate drivers for 3-phase half-bridges, dual automated ADC sequencers and integrated amplifiers for analog signal conditioning used for control sampling. In addition to the analog capabilities, there are a rich set of digital peripherals for use with the industry-standard ARM Cortex-M0 MCU. The level of integration in the family allows systems designers a much easier platform to design with so that they can focus on the truly value-added features of their product.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
