MCU Family Adds LIN Members

Adding 36 new members, the R8C/Tiny family of 16-bit flash microcontrollers now includes devices with LIN interfaces, operating voltages from 2.2V to 5.5V, and operating temperatures from -40°C to +125°C. Devices in the R8C/26 and R8C/27 groups sport 7 mm x 7 mm, 32-pin LQFP packages, while those in the R8C/28 and R8C/29 shrink to 6.5 mm x 4.4 mm in 20-pin LSSOPs. The R8C/26 and R8C/27 devices provide 32, 24, 16, or 8 KB of flash memory with an extra 2 KB of data flash with higher endurance, organized as two 1 KB blocks, which are useable for both program and data storage. The R8C/28 and R8C/29 MCUs offer either 16 KB or 8 KB of flash. Both groups include a range of common features including a clock oscillator, low-voltage detection circuit, 16-bit timer that can clock at speeds up to 40 MHz via a separate on-chip oscillator, an 8-bit timer, and a synchronous/UART serial interface. Factory programming free of charge for purchases of 50,000 pieces per year. Depending on the device, prices range from $1.50 to $3.50 each each/2,000. RENESAS TECHNOLOGY AMERICA INC., San Jose, CA.
