Winbond Electronics Corp. will showcase two products at the 12th International IC-China Conference & Exhibition (IIC-China)the W79E8XX (8051 core) LPC series and the 32bit W90P710/W90N745 (ARM core) MCU.

The W79E8XX LPC series features high resistance to interference and static electricity, and is suitable for general industrial control apps such as power control, motor control, electronic bike (E-Bike) control, lock control, AC control and treadmills. A reference application for E-Bike control will be on display at IIC-China.

The product series benefits from high processing power, with more than double the performance of traditional 8051 MCUs under identical operating frequencies. The processor can reach speeds up to 20MHz, apart from having 2-16Kbyte of flash ROM and 128-512byte of built-in SRAM; along with 128-256byte of memory capacity for power loss storage.

The LPC series provides a complete development system with full-scale hardware and software features, including a JTAG simulator, programmer and support files. The complete system can enable designers to achieve shorter time-to-market for products. With the LPC series, engineers can use the in-circuit program feature that allows for direct updating from the online system, improving the product's overall flexibility and expandability.

The highly integrated general use W90P710/W90N745 MCU and complete development solutions uses ARM7TDMI core, developed with a 0.18m process, that can reach operating frequencies of 80MHz. The on-chip 4Kbyte I-Cache and 4Kbyte D-Cache can be configured as on-chip RAM if required by the developer. The W90P710/W90N745 microcontroller is touted to shorten product development time for system manufacturers and allow clients to market products faster. Winbond is currently introducing the device to market.

Winbond will display the W90P710 development system at IIC-China next week. The W90P710 is an STN LCD controller that supports high-resolution TFT display monitors. This device also includes four UART interface ports to support various client applications connecting to peripheral devices, e.g. barcode scanners, VFD modules, management ports and Bluetooth modules. During the show, Winbond will showcase an application of W90P710 for electronic photo-frame products.

For system integration, the W90P710 is also suitable for products that require an LCD display such as POS and data collectors. Meanwhile, the W90N745 can be applied for network-related apps such as management switches, IP cameras, VoIP and printer servers.
