Fujitsu Significantly Updates FM3 Family of 32-bit Microcontroll

Fujitsu Significantly Updates FM3 Family of 32-bit Microcontrollers for a Total
of 570 Products 
Supports a broad range of applications with the addition of high-capacity memory
products and low pin count products 
Yokohama, Japan, Apr 18, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited
today announced the launch of an upgraded lineup of its FM3 Family of 32-bit
general-purpose RISC microcontrollers based on the ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-M3
processor core. In total, Fujitsu Semiconductor is releasing 38 new products,
including the MB9BF529TPMC, which is equipped with high-capacity memory, and
the MB9BF121JPMC, which features low pin count packaging. Sample quantities of
the new products will incrementally be made available starting May 10, 2013.
The new lineup is optimal for system control in household appliances, office
automation equipment, and industrial equipment. 
With the addition of these new products, Fujitsu Semiconductor's top
class FM3 Family lineup of ARM Cortex-M3 processor core-based microcontrollers
will total 570 products. 
Since first announcing the FM3 family of 32-bit general-purpose RISC
microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M3 core in 2010, Fujitsu Semiconductor
has subsequently developed a rich product lineup supporting a broad range of
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
lineup is optimal for system control in household appliances, office automation
equipment, and industrial equipment. 
Going forward, Fujitsu Semiconductor plans to incrementally augment its
microcontroller portfolio, including its FM4 Family of Cortex-M4 core-based
processors and the FM0+ Family of Cortex-M0+ core-based processors, all while
delivering its enhanced product lineup to the global marketplace. 
Product Overview 
MB9B520T/420T/320T/120T Series featuring high-capacity memory- 
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 multifunction serial (UART/CSI0/LIN/I2C) and other serial
communications features, in addition to a multifunction 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. 
MB9B120J Series featuring low pin count packaging- 
The new MB9B120J Series is the first product series in the FM3 Family lineup
to feature 32-pin packaging. The series is available at operating speeds of up
to 72 MHz, which is the highest for the Basic Group of products. It also comes
equipped with a multifunction timer capable of inverter control and a
high-speed, high-sensitivity 12-bit 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. 
MB9A420L/120L Series featuring CAN communications and energy-efficient
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 multifunction timer that is capable of
inverter control, and a 10-bit DA converter. The series lineup 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.
