DSP controller now in 6-by-6mm, 28-pin, QFN package

Microchip Technology Inc. released the first of its digital signal controllers (DSCs) in a 6-by-6mm, 28-pin, QFN package. With 30MIPS of performance, this small-packaged device gives engineers, with limited board space, a powerful, thermally efficient design option, the company said.

With the same performance as the company's dsPIC30F2010, the dsPIC30F2010MMG can create smart nodes, can put the processor closer to sensors, or can offload the overburdened central processors, in a broad range of embedded systems. Additionally, the QFN package offers thermal characteristics needed in a small design space.

The peripheral set of the dsPIC30F2010MMG permits a reduced board component count. Mixed-signal capabilities, such as low-voltage detect and a wide voltage range (2.5V to 5.5V) are said to be advantages in many noisy analog environments.

"This 6-by-6mm, QFN DSC is in a performance category that is dominated by devices with 100 pins plus, in large packages," said Sumit Mitra , VP of Microchip's DSC Division. "In applications where space savings translates into end-product market viability or a competitive edge, the 28-pin, dsPIC30F2010MMG offers many unique benefits."

The dsPIC30F2010MMG offers flash self-programming capability for remote upgrades to the flash program memory, allowing code revisions in end-users' applications. Additional features include 12KB of on-chip flash program memory, 512 Bytes of on-chip data RAM, Pulse Width Modulation and 10bit ADC with 500Ksps conversion rate.

The dsPIC30F2010MMG includes a variety of communication modules, such as: addressable UART modules, 3-wire SPI interface and I?C interface support. All dsPIC DSCs are supported by Microchip's development systems, including: MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE), MPLAB C30 C Compiler, MPLAB ICD 2 In-Circuit Debugger, MPLAB Visual Device Initializer and MPLAB ICE 4000 In-Circuit Emulator (ICE).

The dsPIC30F2010MMG is already available for sampling and for volume production. For pricing or additional information, visit Microchip's website.
