NEC uPD78F8056, uPD78F8057, and uPD78F8058 Flash Microcontrollers

NEC Electronics announced the µPD78F8056 (64 KB), µPD78F8057 (96 KB), and µPD78F8058 (128 KB) 16-bit All Flash microcontrollers (MCUs). The new microcontrollers feature embedded IEEE802.15.4-compliant 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) radio frequency (RF) transceiver for ZigBee RF4CE. The new microcontrollers come with 56 pins and 8x8mm quad flat no-leads (QFN) packages. The µPD78F8056, µPD78F8057, and µPD78F8058 MCUs are ideal for RF remote control and provide the lowest level of power consumption in the industry.
