Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia Pte Ltd has released its series of dual-channel Flash 8bit general-purpose microcontrollers (MCUs). Fujitsu Semiconductor boasts that the MB95560 series combines high-security, high-precision and high-cost performance.

The MB95560 family includes twelve 20-pin products with built-in LIN-UART. It is pin-to-pin compatible with the MB95260 series. Based on the 8bit MCU of the "F2MC-New8FX Family," this series of products applies dual-channel Flash technology, enabling a program to operate on Flash while performing the read/write operation on another Flash channel, thereby protecting customers' important data.

Moreover, the MB95560 series integrates a number of highly versatile timers, high resolution A/D converter, oscillation circuit and low-voltage detection circuit. This configuration significantly reduces the number of components in the system, thus lowering product cost, the company said.

Fujitsu Semiconductor believes that the products from the series achieve the industry's most leading-edge low-power consumption. The series runs on an operating current of 110?A/MHz with a standby current of 5?A. It features 180nm technology with high design efficiency. Advanced technology is adopted to make MB95560 realize a higher degree of integration and precision. For instance, the chip is equipped with a 16.25MHz1 percent oscillator, Flash memory that supports background running and supports 100,000 program/erase cycles. It also achieves high accuracy with its internal A/D converter and low voltage detection circuit.

MB95560 uses the common development tool and software development environment of the "F2MC-New8FX Family." All products in this series use the 1-line on-chip debug function, which enables customers to debug with only a minimal number of pins during product development.

The MB95560 series can be applied to a wide range of small electrical appliances, digital electronic products, chargers, PC products, electric tools, remote control products, etc.

New product samples will be available from August 2011 and product shipment will commence in October 2011.
