  • Integrating Mixed Signal Capabilities On MSP430 TM MCUs In Industrial Automation Applications
    solutions with a strong focus on low-power, low-cost solutions. The MSP430 MCU family has many derivatives that meet these requirements and provide ample mixed signal capabilities for this market. By utilizing these capabilities, industrial automation application designs can be greatly simplified
  • The Heartbeat behind Portable Medical Devices: Ultra-Low-Power Mixed-Signal Microcontrollers
    and accurate, but they must also be easy-to-use, low power, support a wide range of voltages, have easy and secure connectivity and of course low cost. And the heartbeat of these portable device designs are highly integrated mixed-signal microcontrollers (MCUs) designed to deliver exceptional processing
  • The C8051 Core: A Viable Compute Engine for 8-bit MCU Design
    In today's ARM-oriented MCU development environment, 8-bit devices might look old and outdated, but looks are deceiving. When coupled with modern process technologies and advanced mixed-signal peripherals, 8-bit performance on most control tasks can match or exceed many other CPU architectures
  • How Modern 8-bit MCUs are Reducing Size and System Cost
    In today's ARM-oriented MCU development environment, 8-bit devices might look outdated, but looks are deceiving. When coupled with modern process technologies and advanced mixed-signal peripherals, 8-bit performance on most control tasks can match or exceed many other CPU architectures, while
  • Using the ESD Parasitic Diodes on Mixed Signal Microcontrollers
    Microchip application note, AN521, provides a number of guidelines for implementing low-cost, zero cross circuits by relying upon the parasitic ESD diodes in the I/O pins. These guidelines have been used successfully for many years, but, with the increase in analog functionality on the MCUs
  • Agilent: Five Hints for Debugging Microcontroller-Based Designs
    Hint 1: Verifying quadrature encoder signals in a motion control system Using a mixed analog and digital signal oscilloscope to simultaneously monitor the signal levels of a quadrature encoder, an LS7083 converter chip, and a motor's positive lead. Hint 2: Implementing a simple voltage follower
