Fabless semiconductor company Cyan has announced the launch of the eCOG1XE01A6, an entry-level subset of the company's eCOG1X MCU family. The new device is complementary to the company's existing products. For example, in support of RF-Solved, which provides a user with a customisable ISM band solution suitable for use in the intelligent sensors and automatic meter reading markets, the eCOG1XE01A6 is priced for use in the high-volume and cost-sensitive slave nodes.

The eCOG1XE01A6 offers a 64Kbyte flash memory and retains the most commonly used peripheral blocks of the eCOG1X family. An internal Harvard architecture with 8Kbytes of Static RAM delivers high performance. The chip is fully supported by CyanIDE, a free Integrated Development Environment that includes automated peripheral configuration and an unrestricted ANSI C Compiler. The eCOG1XE01A6 incorporates a number of power saving features including a highly flexible peripheral clock set up and sleep mode.

"The eCOG1XE01A6 is a new low-cost addition to our MCU product portfolio," said Paul Chaplin, VP of sales EMEA. "The market for intelligent sensors and automatic meter reading applications is very active. RF-Solved, as a ready to go solution, can now deliver its benefits of propagation through obstacles such as buildings based on a low-cost node powered by the eCOG1XE01A6."

The eCOG1XE01A6 is available in a 68-pin QFN package, comprehensively supported by a low-cost development board and high-speed programming adaptor, along with a new release of CyanIDE (version 1.4.4). The unit selling price for the eCOG1XE01A6 is $3 in volume.

Cyan is one of the exhibitors in the IIC-China 2008.
