Microchip Technology introduced their PIC12LF1840T48A single-chip devices. The PIC12LF1840T48A integrates an eXtreme Low Power (XLP), 8-bit PIC microcontroller with a sub-GHz RF transmitter. The Microchip PIC12LF1840T48A is optimized to run Microchip’s royalty-free KEELOQ advanced code-hopping technology. The new device family is available in a 14-pin TSSOP package. It is priced at $1.06 each in 10,000-unit quantities. Samples are available now. Volume production is expected in January.
Digi International announced the XPress Crypto Module for developing wireless and wired devices that meet stringent federal cryptography standards. The cryptographic embedded module is validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to Level 2 of the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 (certificate #1452). The module supports a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) and can be embedded in a host microcontroller circuit. Digi XPress Crypto Module development kits are available now for $399.
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced the DMVA1 SoC. With DMVA1, engineers can deploy smart analytics functions such as people counting, trip zone, intelligent motion detection, camera tamper detection and streaming metadata. By coupling the vision co-processor with smart analytics all on a single chip, designers can reduce the cost of video analytics-enabled IP cameras by an order of magnitude. The DMVA1 video security camera SoC will begin sampling in the second quarter to early adopter video security customers.
American Portwell Technology announced the CAR-3005, CAR-3006, and CAR-3007 network security appliances. The new CAR-3005/6/7 network security appliances are regulatory certified for FCC/CE and UL. They are also RoHS/WEEE Compliant and is designed with a riser card option to support both standard PCI-E x8 add-on cards and Portwell ABN/NIP Ethernet modules.
Lanner Electronics introduced the FW-8910 Network Security Appliance. The FW-8910 is a 2U rackmount dual CPU appliance built around two Intel Xeon C5500 processors and supports up to 40GbE ports. It features integrated memory controller, integrated PCI-Express Gen2 controller, and Intel Quick Path Interconnect technology. The FW-8910 is ideal for network security, NAC, WAN Acceleration, and ADC applications. The Lanner FW-8910 is available this quarter for sample orders.
Microchip Technology introduced the PIC32MX5, PIC32MX6, and PIC32MX7 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller (MCU) families. The PIC32MX5/6/7 MCUs are ideal for communications (point-of-sale terminals, web servers, CAN-to-Ethernet-to-USB bridges), industrial/medical (automation, controllers, medical devices, security monitoring), consumer/appliance (audio, MP3 decoders, displays, small appliances, fitness equipment), and automotive (aftermarket, car alarms, GPS). The three new PIC32MX5/6/7 microcontroller families are available today for sampling and volume production. 10,000 unit pricing ranges from $4.73 each for the PIC32MX575F256H, up to $6.55 each for the PIC32MX795F512L. Packaging options include 100-pin TQFP and BGA packages, and 64-pin TQFP and QFN packages.
