Microchip Technology Inc. Announces MEC14XX Family of Highly Configurable Low-Power Embedded Controllers

Microchip Technology Inc. announced the MEC14XX family of highly configurable low-power embedded controllers customized to the needs of x86-based notebook and tablet platform designers. The scalable family of MEC14XX devices is one of the first to support both the Intel Corporation's new Enhanced Serial Peripheral Interface (eSPI) and the existing Low Pin Count interface (LPC). To ease the mobile computing industry's transition to the new interface and lower-voltage designs, Microchip's MEC14XX family also provides a flexible arrangement that allows multiple I/O signals to be configured to support either 3.3V or 1.8V, reducing the system bill-of-materials cost by eliminating the need for external voltage translators. These features of the MEC14XX family also allow for a seamless migration of intellectual property (IP) reuse across multiple x86 computing platform architectures, such as Intel Atom, Intel iCore and AMD-based systems. This is also Microchip's first embedded controller family targeted for general x86 computing that includes Microchip's award-winning MPLAB development tool support. The MEC14XX devices are offered with a choice of 128 KB, 160 KB or 192 KB of closely coupled SRAM for code and data that loads from SPI-flash. Designers can leverage the host SPI-flash (used for BIOS storage) for non-volatile EC firmware storage, as a cost-effective system solution. The added choice of either the MEC140X LPC interface devices or the MEC1418, which supports both the LPC and eSPI interfaces, allows the designer to select the most cost-effective device for a particular platform and provides manufacturers the ability to preserve their investments as the industry transitions. All members of the Microchip MEC14XX family are pin and register compatible. Each member of the MEC14XX family is based on Microchip's 32-bit PIC MCU architecture and is supported by Microchip's development tools. Examples include the MPLAB XC Compilers, the MPLAB REAL ICE In-Circuit Emulator (part # DV244005, $499.98), the MPLAB ICD 3 In-Circuit Debugger (part # DV164035, $199.95) and the PICkit 3 Starter Kit (part # DV164130, $64.95). Development tools are available via any Microchip sales representative or authorized worldwide distributor, or from microchipDIRECT. Pricing & Availability: The MEC1404 (128 KB SRAM) and MEC1408 (192 KB SRAM) embedded controllers supporting the Intel LPC interface are available for sampling and volume production, starting at $1.68 each in 10,000-unit quantities. The MEC1418 (192 KB SRAM) embedded controller, supporting both the Intel LPC and eSPI interfaces, is available for sampling and volume production at $2.05 each, in 10,000-unit quantities. All MEC14XX devices are currently offered in a 128-VTQFP package.

Microchip Technology Inc. Announces New MOST150 Coaxial Transceiver

Microchip Technology Inc. announced MOST150 coaxial transceiver. Extending the usage of coaxial cabling to powerful automotive infotainment networks based on the latest MOST150 standard, the newly introduced OS82150 integrates a coaxial cable driver and coaxial cable receiver into a small-footprint, 4x4 mm QFN package. This simple solution reflects today's market demands for powerful automotive infotainment systems that include a navigation unit, antenna module, amplifier, tuner, Blu-ray™ player, rear-seat entertainment, instrument cluster, head-unit display, camera and more. MOST networking technology provides the means to distribute these multimedia entertainment functions among the various control devices inside the car. With an integrated coaxial-cable receiver featuring an equalizing function, the OS82150 coaxial transceiver assures robust and reliable network connectivity by providing automatic adaptation to various cable types and continuous compensation for initial and long-term cable loss effects. Designed for automotive-grade electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), the device also integrates functions to minimize electromagnetic emissions and handle automotive electromagnetic interference (EMI) levels, facilitating smooth installations of MOST150 networks into vehicles. By seamlessly interfacing with MOST150 Intelligent Network Interface Controllers (INICs), such as Microchip's OS81110 and OS81118BF, the OS82150 can be easily integrated into existing designs. Additionally, the signal and timing specifications of the OS82150 are compliant with the MOST Physical Layer Specification, ensuring interoperability. Additional features of the OS82150 coaxial transceiver include a low-power sleep mode with activity detection for wake-on-signal functionality, to reduce power consumption and facilitate the power management of electronic control units (ECUs) in the vehicle. Support for dual-simplex transmission allows for a ring topology that enables expandability and scalability of the network. A single, 3.3 volt power supply further eases design-in, as only a single voltage level is needed.

Microchip Technology Inc. Announces MCP9600

Microchip Technology Inc. has announced the MCP9600 – the world's first thermocouple-conditioning integrated circuit to combine precision instrumentation, a precision temperature sensor and a precision, high-resolution analog-to-digital converter (ADC), in addition to a math engine preprogrammed with the firmware to support a broad range of standard thermocouple types (K, J, T, N, S, E, B and R). Thermocouples are one of the most ubiquitous temperature-measurement devices, due to their robustness and accuracy in harsh, high-temperature environments, and their ability to measure temperature over an extremely wide range. The MCP9600 simplifies thermocouple designs by integrating a number of discrete devices into one chip, which also lowers board area, cost and power consumption. Thermocouples are widely used to measure temperature by the designers of industrial, consumer, automotive/aerospace and petrochemical applications, among others. The MCP9600 provides them with the world's first plug-and-play solution for creating thermocouple-based designs, because it eliminates the design expertise required for a discrete implementation, such as firmware development using an MCU's math engine. Designers no longer have to create precision instrumentation circuitry to accurately measure a thermocouple's microvolt-level signals, nor do they have to design ADC circuitry for precise temperature calculations. With the MCP9600's integrated cold-junction compensation, calculating the "Hot" junction temperature of a thermocouple doesn't necessitate thermal design expertise to precisely measure the reference temperature of the thermocouple's "Cold" junction. Other features of the MCP9600 include a temperature-data digital filter, which minimises the effects of temperature fluctuations, system noise and electromagnetic interference. Its shutdown modes reduce overall system power consumption, while its four user-programmable temperature-alert outputs reduce the system microcontroller's overhead and code space, while further simplifying designs. Finally, the MCP9600 comes in a 5x5 mm, 20-lead mQFN package, which further reduces board area and manufacturing cost. The MCP9600 is available for sampling and volume production, in a 5x5 mm, 20-lead mQFN package in 5,000-unit quantities.
