Silicon Laboratories introduced the C8051F5xx automotive-qualified microcontrollers (MCUs). The C8051F5xx microcontrollers reduce system cost and footprint in body electronics applications. The highly integrated C8051F5xx family eliminates the need for discrete analog components and offers industry-leading throughput, reducing code size and further lowering system cost. The F5xx automotive MCUs are available in space-saving QFN packages, as well as leaded QFP packages. Samples and production quantities are available now. Pricing for the F5xx family starts at $1.90 (USD) in 1k quantities.
