Microchip Technology Inc. Announces Microchip GestIC Controller Enables One-Step Design-In of 3D Gesture Recognition in Embedded Devices MGC3030 Offers Simplified User Interface Options

Microchip Technology Inc. announced the new MGC3030 3D gesture controller features simplified user-interface options focused on gesture detection, enabling true one-step design-in of 3D gesture recognition in consumer and embedded devices. Housed in an easy-to-manufacture SSOP28 package, the MGC3030 expands the use of highly sought after 3D gesture control features to high-volume cost-sensitive applications such as toys, audio and lighting. The simplicity of gesture-detection integration offered by the MGC3030 is also achieved through Microchip's free, downloadable AUREA graphical user interface and easily configurable general purpose IO ports that even allow for host MCU/processor-free usage. The MGC3030's on-chip 32-bit digital signal processor executes real-time gesture processing, eliminating the need for external cameras or controllers for host processing, and allowing for faster and more natural user interaction with devices. Further simplifying the design process and accelerating time to market, the MGC3030 makes full use of the GestIC family development tools. For example, Microchip's Colibri Gesture Suite, an on-chip software library of sophisticated yet easy-to-use gesture features. Intuitive and natural movements of the human hand are recognized, making the operation of a device functional, intuitive and fun. Without the need to touch the device, features such as Flick Gestures, the Air Wheel or the proximity detection perform commands such as changing audio tracks, adjusting volume control or backlighting, and many others. All gestures are processed on-chip, allowing manufacturers to realize powerful user interfaces with very low development effort. Unique to GestIC technology, the programmable Auto Wake-Up On Approach feature begins operating in the range of 100 microwatts power consumption, enabling always-on gesture sensing in power-constrained applications. If real user interaction is detected, the system automatically switches into full sensing mode and alternates back to auto wake-up mode once the user leaves the sensing area. These combined features and capabilities provide designers with the ability to quickly integrate gesture detection features at price points that are ideal for high-volume devices. To enable development with the MGC3030, Microchip's Woodstar MGC3030 Development Kit (part # DM160226) was also announced. It is available now for $139 via any Microchip sales representative or authorized worldwide distributor, or from microchipDIRECT. The kit comes with the AUREA Graphical User Interface, the central tool to parameterize the MGC3030 and the Colibri Suite to suit the needs of any design. The Colibri Gesture Suite is an extensive library of proven and natural 3D gestures for hands and fingers that is pre-programmed into the MGC3030.

Microchip Technology Inc. Expands Family of Serial Quad I/O Superflash Memory Devices with 1.8V Low-Power 4-Mbit and 8-Mbit Memory

Microchip Technology Inc. announced an expansion of its 1.8V Serial Quad I/O™ (SQI) SuperFlash Memory with the SST26WF080B and SST26WF040B devices. These devices offer 4-Mbit and 8-Mbit of memory and are manufactured with Microchip's high-performance SuperFlash technology, which provides the erase times and superior reliability. The SST26WF080B/040B provide the fastest erase times of any competing device due to the use of SuperFlash technology. Sector and block erase commands are completed in just 18 ms and a full chip erase operation is completed in 35 ms. Competing devices require in the range of 5 to 15 seconds to complete a full chip erase operation, making SST26WF080B/040B approximately 300 times faster. The SQI interface is a high-speed 104 MHz quad I/O serial interface which allows for high-data throughput in a low pin-count package. This interface enables low latency execute-in-place (XIP) capability, allowing programs to be stored and executed directly from the Flash memory and eliminating the need for code shadowing on a RAM device. The SST26WF080B/040B provides faster data throughput than a comparable x16 parallel Flash device without the associated high cost and high-pin count of parallel Flash. The SQI interface also offers full command-set backwards compatibility to traditional Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) protocol. Designed for low-power consumption, the SST26WF080B/040B helps maximize battery life in portable powered applications. Standby current consumption is 10 µA typical and a deep power-down mode further reduces current consumption to 1.8 µA typical. The SST26WF080B/040B offers excellent quality and reliability with 100 years data retention and device endurance of over 100,000 erase/write cycles. Enhanced safety features include software write protection of individual blocks for flexible data/code protection and a One-Time Programmable (OTP) 2 Kbyte Secure ID area. The SST26WF080B/040B devices are available for sampling and volume production in 8-contact WSON (6mm x 5mm), 8-lead SOIC (150 mil), 8-contact USON (2mm x 3mm), 8-ball XFBGA (Z-Scale) packages, starting at $0.57 each for SST26WF040B and $0.65 each for SST26WF080B in 10,000-unit quantities.
