Zilog IR ROM MCU consumes 6mW

Zilog Inc. rolled out of its new Crimzon ZLR32300 infra-red (IR) ROM microcontroller (MCU) family that is 100 percent software compatible with the company's current Crimzon family of OTP IR microcontrollers.

An extension of the Crimzon family of IR microcontrollers, the ZLR32300 targets markets such as IR remote controls and wireless keyboards. Its low power consumption (typically 6mW) also makes the MCU suitable for use in consumer handheld devices, extending the battery life of these devices. In addition, with the design based on the Z8 core and built around CISC architecture, the ZLR32300 provides a stable base platform allowing rapid development, small-volume production and a migration path to MROM for high volume production of remote controls.

The new devices offer a choice of 8-, 16-, 24- or 32KB of ROM memory, a 2V to 3.6V operating range, and come in 20-, 28-, 40- and 48-pin and SOIC, SSOP and PDIP packaging options. In addition, the ZLR32300 offers up 237 bytes of general-purpose RAM and 32KB of MROM, a high GPIO count (up to 32), fast executing, efficient use of memory, sophisticated interrupts, input/output bit manipulation capabilities, automated pulse, high and low voltage detection flags, two programmable timers and comes with a comprehensive suite of development tools.

According to the company, the included robust IR code database provides coding for multiple devices and geographies to provide the highest level of design flexibility. The MCUs also feature embedded remote control firmware which enables features to be designed quickly and easily on designer's remote control devices.

The ZLR32300 is priced at $1.35 per unit in quantities of 10,000. Additional information can be found at the company's website.
