MCU family extended

Fujitsu Semiconductor (Japan) has updated its FM3 32-bit micro-controller family to a total of 570 products. Some of these Cortex-M3 based MCUs are equipped with on-chip CAN modules.

FUJITSU SEMICONDUCTOR HAS RELEASED 38 additional MCUs. They are optimized for system control in household appliances, office automation equipment, and industrial equipment. Sample quantities are already made available. Since first announcing the FM3 family of 32-bit general-purpose RISC micro-controllers based on the ARM Cortex-M3 core in 2010, Fujitsu Semiconductor has subsequently developed a product lineup supporting a broad range of applications. The recently introduced MCUs include the low-power MB9A420L/120L series, which supports CAN communications.

Moving forward, the recently sold chipmaker plans to incrementally augment its micro-controller portfolio, including its FM4 family of Cortex-M4 core-based processors and the FM0+ family of Cortex-M0+ core-based processors, all while delivering its enhanced product lineup to the global marketplace.

CAN-connectable MCUs with high-capacity memory

The MB9B520T/420T/320T/120T series features an assortment of peripheral functions that the FM3 family is renowned for, including CAN, USB, and other serial interfaces, in addition to a multifunction timer that is capable of inverter control. The series, which is available in variations featuring internal flash memory ranging up to 1,5 MiB of flash memory, is available in 144-pin to 192-pin packages. The series is intended for inverter control applications in household appliances, such as air conditioners, and in the various motors used in office automation equipment, including printers and copiers, as well as for human-machine interface control in AV equipment. Equipping the high-capacity memory makes it possible to support multiple languages in the display components of AV and office automation equipment. The MB9A420L/120L series is designed for low-power applications. These components also feature CAN communication functionality. They provide a multifunction timer that is capable of inverter control, and a 10-bit D/A converter. The series lineup is available in 48-pin to 64-pin packages. It is suitable for use in equipment that requires push button tone control, such as elevators, building management applications, and electronic switchboards.
