Silicon Laboratories Inc. has launched a highly integrated 8bit MCU that combines a 25MIPS CPU, 10bit ADC and an internal 2 percent oscillator in a 3-by-3mm package. The C8051T60x product family adds more than 60 small form-factor MCUs to the company's portfolio for cost-sensitive consumer and industrial applications including toys, camera modules, cellphone accessories, portable devices, home appliances and motor controllers.

Silicon Labs said the C8051T60x family offers the highest functional density in the 8bit MCU market, which enables manufacturers to decrease the number of external components, reduce board space and ease design while reducing the total system cost. The C8051T60x is also pin-compatible with the company's C8051F30x flash-based MCU family to allow for both upgraded and lower cost product versions without requiring the designer to develop multiple hardware platforms.

A development kit contains all the hardware and software required to develop an embedded system, including a socket-to-program one-time programmable (OTP) memory.

The C8051T60x family is on display at the 12th International IC-China Conference & Exhibition in Beijing and Shanghai on March 8-14.

Pricing starts at 45 cents in quantities of 10,000.
