ON Semiconductor announced their Q32M210 family of mixed-signal microcontrollers. The Q32M210 features the ARM Cortex-M3 processor, dual 16-bit ADCs, a highly accurate voltage reference, triple 10-bit DACs and 32-bit core. Samples of the Q32M210 microcontrollers are available now. The MCU is priced at $4.99 per unit (10,000 unit quantities). The Q32M210 is ideal for precision measurement and monitoring applications.
STMicroelectronics introduced the LSM303DLH digital compass module. The LSM303DLH geomagnetic module combines magnetic-field and linear-acceleration sensing with an I²C digital interface in a single package. The LSM303DLH module features high accuracy, small form factor, and low power consumption at a competitive cost. The ST LSM303DLH digital compass is ideal for enhanced electronic compassing in portable consumer applications (such as direction finding, map/display orientation, location-based services and pedestrian dead reckoning).
Cypress Semiconductor announced the CY8C28xxx PSoC 1 programmable system-on-chip with enhanced analog performance. The programmable analog of the CY8C28xxx device enables more advanced mixed-signal and sensing applications, as well as faster and more robust capacitive touch-sensing interfaces. The CY8C28xxx PSoC 1 devices are now in production. The line is available in multiple configurations, and comes in a 48-pin QFN package, a 44-pin TQFP package, and 20- and 28-pin SSOP packages.
Silicon Laboratories launched the QuickSense family of highly accurate and fast-response touch, proximity, and ambient light sense devices supported by a common development environment. The QuickSense sensing solutions are ideal for portable, consumer, and industrial electronics products. The QuickSense F700 and F800 touch sense MCUs and the Si11xx proximity and ambient light sensors are available now. All QuickSense parts are supported by the QuickSense Studio and a suite of development tools to enable quick evaluation and design.
