ON Semiconductor Introduces Q32M210 , New Family of Mixed-Signal Microcontroller for Portable Sensing Applications
ON Semiconductor introduced the Q32M210, the first in a new family of mixed-signal microcontrollers for precision measurement and monitoring. Designed for use in portable sensing applications and built with the ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor, the highly-integrated Q32M210 provides a unique combination of high precision performance and predictable operation with exceptional power efficiency.
Q32M210 is specifically designed for portable sensing applications that demand high precision. The device features dual 16-bit ADCs, a highly accurate voltage reference, triple 10-bit DACs and 32-bit core. The ultra-low-noise ADCs offer true 16-bit performance unlike typical converters where non-linearity and noise can reduce the number of effective bits.
Q32M210 features on-chip power supervision with dedicated brown-out protection circuitry and low battery detection for predictable operation under all battery conditions. Integrated error checking and correction circuitry monitors the on-chip flash memory, detecting and correcting single bit errors and alerting when larger errors are detected.
Q32M210 is extremely power efficient, helping to extend the battery life of end products. The ultra-low-power sensor interface, flexible clocking architecture, multiple operating modes (active, standby and sleep) and intelligent power-supply monitoring feature make Q32M210 the most power efficient microcontroller in its class.
“The Q32M210 microcontroller represents a significant step forward in precision mixed-signal control,” said Todd Schneider, vice president for ON Semiconductor’s conversion and control technologies product line. “We believe the combination of a highly configurable analog front-end with a proven 32-bit core offering high accuracy, predictable operation and low-power operation coupled with a wide range of standard interfaces is extremely compelling for a wide range of battery-powered sensing equipment.”
Samples are available now. Q32M210 is priced at $4.99 per unit in 10,000 unit quantities.
