April 21, 2003 - AUSTIN, TX - Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. today announced the C8051F060, a mixed-signal flash microcontroller with two ultra-low power 16-bit one million samples per second (1MSPS) A/D converters. These successive-approximation (SAR) ADCs are accurate to one least significant bit integral non-linearity (INL), and have 89dB SINAD. Consuming only 20mW per ADC, these are the lowest power ADCs available at comparable performance levels. The C8051F060 is perfect for a variety of analog intensive embedded applications, including weight scales, industrial and medical measurement, and smart sensors.
"The C8051F060 represents a new standard in mixed-signal integration in microcontrollers", said Douglas Holberg, Chief Technical Officer for Cygnal. "A microcontroller with integrated ADCs having this level of performance is simply unparalleled in the industry".
C8051F060 family devices have:
- 25MIPS 8051 CPU
- 64Kbytes Flash memory
- 4352 bytes RAM
- two 12-bit DACs
- 2% internal oscillator
- temperature sensor
- voltage reference
- CAN 2.0B controller with 32 message objects
- two UARTs
- SPI® bus
- available in 100-pin or 64-pin TQFP
Tools and Pricing
Prices start at $16.84 in 10,000 piece quantities. The C8051F060 has on-chip debug circuitry facilitating full-speed in-system debug features such as single-stepping, breakpoints, and modifying registers and memory. The C8051F060DK Development kit sells for $299.
