Zilog Releases New Z8 Encore! XP(R) F6482 Microcontroller for High Performance and Low Power Applications

Zilog, Inc. introduced its Z8 Encore! XP(R) F6482 Series MCU, the latest in Zilog's line of Z8 Encore! XP(R) Flash microcontroller products. These F6482 Series products are based on Zilog's advanced 8-bit eZ8 CPU core and are optimized for low-power and wireless applications, supporting 1.8V to 3.6V low-voltage operations with extremely low Active, Halt, and Stop Mode currents, and offering an assortment of speed and low power options. The I/O capabilities of the F6482 Series MCUs make them suitable for a wide variety of applications including safety and security, utility metering, digital power supervisory, hand-held electronics, and general motor control. The F6482 Series features up to 67 port pins (ports A--J) for general purpose input/output (GPIO); the number of GPIO pins available is a function of package type. Each pin is individually programmable. Zilog's F6482 Series MCUs feature the following functionality: 24MHz eZ8 CPU core, 16KB, 32KB, 60KB or 64KB Flash memory with in-circuit programming capability, 2KB or 3.75KB internal RAM, Up to 128 bytes Non-Volatile Data Storage (NVDS), 12-bit (or 14-bit 2-pass) Analog-to-Digital Converter, 12-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC), Up to 12 external channels plus dedicated inputs for op amps (2), Temperature sensor, AVDD/2, and bandgap, Internal or external voltage reference and single ended or differential inputs, Integrated LCD driver with blinking and contrast control for up to 96 segments (4 common by 24 segment lines), 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption/decryption hardware accelerator according to FIPS PUB 197, Real Time Clock (RTC) supporting both Counter and Clock modes, On-chip temperature sensor, Two on-chip low power analog comparators, Two on-chip, low power operational amplifiers, 8-channel Event System provides communication between peripherals for autonomous triggering, Full speed Universal Serial Bus (USB 2.0) device supporting eight endpoints with integrated USB-PHY, Two full duplex UARTs with Local Interconnect Network (LIN), Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) and Digital Multiplex (DMX) protocol modes. Support for 9-bit (multiprocessor) and RS-485 driver enable, Two enhanced Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) controllers, I2C controller which supports Master/Slave modes, Four channel DMA controller with direct or linked-list operation, Three enhanced 16-bit timers with Capture, Compare, and PWM capability, Two additional basic 16-bit timers with interrupt (shared as UART Baud Rate Generator) and 16-bit Multi-Channel Timer which supports four Capture/Compare/PWM modules.

Zilog Announces the Z8F2480 Power Monitor with eZ80F91 Webserver

Zilog introduced its Z8F2480 Power Monitor with eZ80F91 Webserver to expand its portfolio of reference designs which accelerate time to market solutions. This new reference design targets remote-operated AC motors and remote-operated commercial/architectural lighting control applications. This reference design integrates a Z8F2480-based AC power monitor with Zilog’s eZ80F91 Webserver Module to showcase the capability of an optically-isolated Z8F2480 MCU-based power monitor to measure AC input voltage, AC load current, voltage/current phase shift, the power factor of the load, and to communicate via a standard Ethernet interface and webserver. The Z8F2480 MCU and the eZ80F91 Webserver Module are connected for easy mounting. The load is powered via a single-phase AC line with voltage in the range of 90 V to 240 V RMS at 50 or 60 Hz. The Z8F2480 MCU-based power board provides current to a power load and provides optically-isolated I2C signals to communicate with the eZ80F91 Module. This reference design can be used as a basis for developing systems that can control different power installations, including motors and lighting ballasts. Key Features: this reference design features the following elements: 90 –240 V AC RMS input voltage range; Load current up to 3 amps; less than 5 mA average current consumed from an AC line in either monitoring or standby modes; 3750 V isolation voltage between the AC line and the eZ80F91 MCU. Potential Applications: this reference design can be used to develop a number of applications; the brief list below offers examples: remote-operated commercial or architectural lighting monitors; remote-operated AC motors or other devices; remote UPS monitoring; remote power usage monitoring; Green Energy power generation monitoring; HVAC power usage monitoring. Zilog continues to expand its array of new turn-key reference designs to assist and accelerate design time. Zilog’s Z8F2480 Power Monitor with eZ80F91 Webserver reference design is now available for customers that place orders through the Zilog Store.

Zilog, Inc. Announces New MultiMotor Series Development Kit for its ZNEO and Z8 Encore! XP Devices

Zilog, Inc. introduced its new MultiMotor Series Development Kit to aid in the development of motor control applications using an assortment of Zilog MCUs designed specifically for motor control environments. Zilog's Z16FMC MCU-based MultiMotor Series Development Kit (ZMULTIMC100ZCOG) is a complete application-specific platform for creating a design featuring a Zilog motor control MCU Module connected to a 3-phase MultiMotor Series Development Board. A 24 V DC/3200 RPM 3-phase motor is included with the Kit, though several motor types are supported, including BLDC, PMSM, and ACIM. Control algorithms including sensored, sensorless, trapezoidal, sinusoidal, and vector are also supported in this MultiMotor Series. The 2.5" x 3.0" Motor Control Module provides circuitry that interfaces its Z16FMC MCU to an external development PC running the Zilog Developer Studio II (ZDS II) Integrated Development Environment (IDE), and to the 3-Phase MultiMotor Series Development Board. Other key features of the MultiMotor Series Development Kit include switches to control the speed, direction, and stop/run settings of the motor, plus 32MB of SPI Flash memory for data logging. The Z16FMC Series Flash microcontroller that is central to the MultiMotor Series Development Kit is based on Zilog's advanced ZNEO 16-bit CPU core, which is optimized for motor control applications in which the control of single and multi-phase variable-speed motors is crucial. Target applications are large appliances, small appliances, and HVAC systems. The key features of the Z16FMC MCU include a 20 MHz, 16-bit optimized single-cycle CISC core, up to 128 KB of in-circuit programmable Flash memory, 4 KB internal RAM with 16-bit access, plus highly integrated digital/analog peripherals such as a 12-bit PWM module with three complementary pairs (or six independent PWM outputs), a fast 12-channel, 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) for current sampling and back-EMF detection, three standard 16-bit timers with capture, compare, and PWM capability, an analog comparator for current limiting or overcurrent shutdown, an operational amplifier, a 4- channel DMA controller, and a flexible communication interface including a UART with LIN and IrDA, I2C, and enhanced SPI.
