8-Bit MCU Lightens LIN Load

STMicroelectronics' 20-pin ST7Lite3 offers a LINSCI serial interface. It targets local interconnect network (LIN) applications in automotive and low-cost sensor and control applications. LINSCI significantly reduces the network protocol overhead, enabling the processor to do more. The chip also has an on-chip 1-MHz oscillator and four 12-bit pulse-width modulation timers suitable for handling motor control services. Pricing starts at $1.30. www.st.com
