Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia Pte Ltd has expanded its "New 8FX" family of high-performance 8bit MCUs with the roll out of 12 products from the 64-pin MB95770 Series and 12 products from the 80-pin MB95710 Series. According to the company, both feature LCD control functionality and support voltage operation range from 1.8-5.5V.

The MB95770 Series and MB95710 Series are geared for a range of applications in both domestic and overseas products, including display panel applications ranging from battery-powered healthcare devices such as blood pressure and blood glucose level meters, to home appliances including washing machines and air conditioner indoor units, and FA devices such as thermometers and pressure gauges.

The MB95770 Series and MB95710 Series are available in 64- and 80-pin packages with up to 60KB of embedded flash memory. In addition to featuring LCD control functionality supporting up to 224 and 288 pixels, respectively, the two series are equipped with peripheral circuits such as various timers, communications functions, high-precision A/D converters and analog comparators that are useful for general-purpose applications. By using these MCUs, manufacturers will be able to reduce the number of system components required in healthcare devices, noted the company.

The MB95770 Series and MB95710 Series can be used in battery-powered healthcare devices, as well as in 5V power supply circuit boards for the display components of washing machines, air conditioner indoor units and other applications. Moreover, the products can be used as power supply control MCUs that help reduce energy consumption by managing the system's power supply, or as a sub-MCU for added functionality in response to specification changes.

Sample quantities of the products are available today.
