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.
