Fujitsu to Showcase Microcontrollers, IP-Phone, Biometric Sensor ICs

4/25/2003 - Fujitsu Microelectronics America’s (FMA) new IP-Phone chip and new microcontrollers for automotive, industrial and consumer appliances, together with the company’s biometric sensor ICs and graphics display controller products, will be featured in FMA’s booth at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco April 23-25.

At booth 1916 at the Moscone Center, FMA is introducing its new AccelArrayTM technology, designed to reduce development costs and provide the performance of cell-based ASICs with the flexibility of FPGAs. In the same booth, Panasonic Fujitsu Systems, Inc. (PFU) will demonstrate a fast-scan access solution using Fujitsu’s MBF200 CMOS fingerprint sensor in an embedded computing platform with networking capability. The solution scans, performs feature extraction, provides a quick match against enrolled templates, and can store and distribute the data over a high-speed network.

IP-Phone Built Around Custom DSP
FMA’s IP-Phone chip is a highly integrated single chip including DSP and RISC functions along with memory and peripherals to provide a very cost-effective solution for small office and home office telephony systems. IP-Phone requires far lower power and cost than competitive products. Fujitsu is now providing a complete reference design platform and comprehensive software so equipment manufacturers can begin new designs immediately. (See accompanying release.) “Our product line-up this year features an important theme: excellent value and performance at optimal prices,” said Keith Horn, FMA’s vice president of marketing. “We are providing products and technology that meet the price/performance requirements of today’s networking, automotive, security and other key markets.”

New 8-, 16-, 32-bit Microcontrollers Deliver Optimal Performance
Fujitsu’s new 32-bit and 16-bit general-purpose and application-specific MCUs include flash memory and Control Area Network (CAN) interfaces in either dual or triple channels, maximizing performance in cost-sensitive applications. A new 8-bit MCU incorporates the Local Interconnect Network (LIN) interface, which has emerged as a proven, low-cost communications standard for vehicle networks.

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) leads the industry in innovation. FMA provides high-quality, reliable semiconductor products and services for the networking, communications, automotive, security and other markets throughout North and South America.
