July 2, 2012 -- Sonix Technology Co., Ltd. has announced its move into the 32-bit microcontroller segment with the launch of a new 32-bit MCU series, the SN32F700, based on the ARM Cortex-M0 core. With the low power consumption and excellent resistance to ESD, these new 32-bit Flash-type microcontrollers are equipped with a variety of analog and mix-signal devices, multiple high-speed communication interfaces which can satisfy customers' needs for low power consumption and high performance.
The first 32-bit MCUs from Sonix, the SN32F700 series, include features such as a high operating speed of 50MHz (45DMIPS), an operating voltage range of 1.8V to 3.6V, an industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, built-in Flash memory of 32kBytes, and a ROM endurance of 20,000 cycles, offering customers a wide flexibility to develop new applications. The devices contain an 10-channel 12-bit ADC and a high-precision 12-MHz IHRC. All series are packaged with LQFP 48 or QFN 46 and contain up to 43 GPIO. In addition, the series integrates high-speed communication interfaces including SPI, I2C, I2S, UART, etc.
Two critical features of SN32F00 are the extremely low power consumption and high reliability of anti-interference. The series have passed anti-interference tests of EFT/ ESD rate at 4kV which is far beyond the industrial's standard of 1kV. In terms of power consumption, current in the deep-power-down mode of SN32F700 series is only 150nA which is far lower than the lowest current of 250nA in the industry.
The SN32F700 series is supported by embedded ICE and development tools. By using the ISP (In-System Programming) integrated functions, users can upgrade and implement software on-line to shorten time-to -market and enhance efficiency and flexibility of product development.
