NEC Electronics 8-bit All Flash Microcontrollers for Body Control

NEC Electronics introduced eight new All Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) for safing microcontroller applications and low-end automotive systems (such as motor control and lighting control applications). The new microcontrollers consists of three 16-pin MCUs (78K0/FY2-L), three 20-pin MCUs (78K0/FA2-L), and two 30-pin MCUs (78K0/FB2-L). They feature a low standby power consumption of 0.65 µA, and are capable of responding to all temperature environments. Samples of the new MCUs are currently available. Mass production is scheduled to begin in June 2010 and is expected to reach a monthly production of 300,000 units by June 2015.
