Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia has recently launched an upgraded line up of its FM3 Family of 32bit general-purpose RISC microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M3 processor core. The company is releasing 38 new products, including the MB9BF529TPMC, which is equipped with high-capacity memory, and the MB9BF121JPMC, which features low pin count packaging. The new line-up is optimised for system control in household appliances, office automation equipment, and industrial equipment.

The Basic Group, which achieves an ideal balance between performance and cost, will be enhanced with the 38 new products including the high-capacity MB9B520T/420T/320T/120T Series, which features up to 1.5MB of flash memory; the low-pin MB9B120J Series, which is available in 32-pin packaging; and the low-power MB9A420L/120L Series, which supports CAN communications. The new line-up is optimal for system control in household appliances, office automation equipment, and industrial equipment.

The MB9B520T/420T/320T/120T Series features a rich assortment of peripheral functions that the FM3 Family is renowned for, including CAN, USB 2.0 Host/Function, and multi-function serial (UART/CSI0/LIN/I2C) and other serial communications features, in addition to a multi-function timer that is capable of inverter control. The series, which is available in variations featuring internal flash memory ranging up to 1.5MB, the highest capacity option in the FM3 Family, is available in 144-pin to 192-pin packages. The series is an optimal choice for inverter control applications in household appliances, such as air conditioners, and in the various motors used in office automation equipment, including printers and copiers, as well as for man-machine interface control in AV equipment. Equipping the high-capacity memory makes it possible to support multiple languages in the display components of AV and office automation equipment.

The MB9B120J Series is the first product series in the FM3 Family line-up to feature 32-pin packaging. The series is available at operating speeds of up to 72MHz, which is the highest for the Basic Group of products. It also comes equipped with a multi-function timer capable of inverter control and a high-speed, high-sensitivity 12bit AD converter, making it an optimal choice for applications in which low-pin inverter control is desirable, such as general-use inverters and motors for low-end industrial equipment, as well as for refrigerators, washing machines, induction heating cookware, and other household appliances. It is also optimal for devices that require a one-to-one motor to microcontroller system architecture.

In addition to leveraging the energy-efficient technology from the FM3 Family's Low Power Group of products, the MB9A420L/120L Series features CAN communications functionality, a multi-function timer that is capable of inverter control, and a 10bit DA converter. The series line-up is available in 48-pin to 64-pin packages. It is an optimal option for use in equipment that requires push button tone control, such as elevators, building management applications, and electronic switchboards.
