32-Bit Flash MCU Targets Portable Devices

The NEC Electronics V850ES/Jx3-L microcontroller’s flash memory consumes only 0.9 mW/Dhrystone MIPS. It also only uses 1.5 µA in standby mode. The 32-bit, 100-pin processor has 16 kbytes of RAMRAMRAM and 256 kbytes of flash. Peripherals include a 12-channel, 10-bit ADC, dual 8-bit DACACs, three serial ports, three I2C ports, and five clock serial interfaces. Pricing starts at $6. Development tools and C compilers are available from NEC, IAR, and Green Hills Software. Higher-end versions support 1 Mbyte of flash and 60 kbytes of RAMRAMRAM.
