Cygnal Releases Mixed-Signal Flash Microcontroller with Integrated CAN Bus and High Voltage Amplifier

8/6/2002 - Cygnal Integrated Products introduced the C8051F040. The C8051F040 is a highly integrated mixed-signal Flash microcontroller with CAN bus connectivity suitable for industrial control, smart sensor, and data acquisition applications on a multitude of CAN networks.

"The C8051F040 combines a comprehensive set of analog and digital peripherals with Cygnal's High-Speed CPU and FLASH memory," said Danny Allred, Director of Product Marketing for Cygnal. "With CAN 2.0B connectivity, this product offers an outstanding feature set for industrial automation and smart sensor applications."

The C8051F040 gives system designers remarkably powerful and flexible features. It has an integrated CAN 2.0B controller with 32 message objects, each with its own filter mask. Integrated analog peripherals include two 12-bit DACís, a 12-bit 100KSPS ADC, a +/- 60V common-mode input range programmable gain difference amplifier, comparators, reference, and a temperature sensor.

A pipelined 8051 CPU, delivering up to 25MIPS at 25MHz, provides abundant compute capability. Two UARTís, SPI® bus, and SMBus® serial interfaces are included. On-chip memory resources consist of 64K bytes in-system programmable FLASH and 4352 bytes RAM. Integrated on-chip JTAG debug circuitry eliminates the need for large profile sockets and expensive in-circuit emulators, further reducing system development time and cost.

Packaged in either a 100-pin or 64-pin TQFP, C8051F040 family devices start at $16.05 in 1,000 piece quantities. The C8051F040DK is a complete development suite with capabilities typical of in-circuit emulators. Both development kits and chips are available for purchase direct from Cygnal.
