Teridian's 71M8100 measurement controller

Teridian Semiconductor Corp. has officially entered the industrial automation and control market with the introduction of 71M8100, a measurement controller designed for industrial applications including process instrumentation, temperature and pressure sensors, weigh scale, medical instrumentation, DAQ and programmable logic controller applications.

Teridian said the 71M8100 is a low-cost, mixed-signal SoC with a high-precision 22bit sigma-delta ADC complemented by a single-cycle-execution, 8051-compatible MCU and an independent 32bit compute engine to perform various filtering, measurement and compensation functions depending on the target application. Data storage options include external EEPROM, on-chip flash or RAM with battery backup support.

The device's architecture promise designers the option to direct connect, or select from a range of low-cost to high-performance commercial front-end amplifiers to meet specific accuracy requirements at various cost points. Maximum design flexibility is supported with three analog inputs, two UART ports, I?C serial control, 5V LCD charge pump, up to 12 DIO pins, an in-system programmable FLASH, real-time clock, 64Kbytes FLASH, internal 128 segment LCD driver, and a high precision voltage reference to enable high-accuracy and low-cost solutions in a highly integrated 64-pin LQFP package.

"Our ability to deliver intelligent and highly integrated devices at a competitive price point, such as the 71M8100, offers a much anticipated performance-to-cost optimization capability not currently available in this market," said Teridian VP for Marketing Steve McClure.

Teridian's 71M8100 measurement controller is currently available in production volumes, and pricing starts at $3.95 in 25,000-unit quantities. Data sheets, 71M8100 evaluation kits and a weigh scale reference design are also available. Additional information can be found on Teridian's website.
