MCU Family’s Storage Capacity Increases To 128 KB

The 78K0/Kx2 series of 8-bit microcontrollers is a family of 58 devices with embedded flash memory ranging from eight to 128 KB. Package sizes vary from 30 to 80 pins depending on the memory size. The devices operate at up to 20 MHz and run on supply voltages from 1.8V to 5.5V at currents up to 2.5 mA. They are intended to replace a previous series of the company’s microcontrollers that employed mask-programmable ROMs at equivalent price levels. A service to assist designers with flash programming, together with on-chip debuggers and flash programmers is aimed at reducing programming costs and time and improving turnaround time compared with ROM devices. Typical applications are in home appliances, consumer electronics, automotive systems and lighting systems. Pricing for the 78K0/Kx2 with 60 KB of flash memory is $5 each in large quantities.
