Lapis Semiconductor recently reported that its ML610Q474 microcontroller family consumes merely 0.25µA in halt mode, 50 per cent lower than conventional products. The devices are suitable for long term-operation using just coin or dry-cell batteries. The company's latest microcontroller can be ideally used in watches, clocks and security tokens. Running on a single 1.5V battery, the microcontrollers also ensure high noise immunity, clearing ±30kV during during IEC61000-4-2 noise-immunity testing.

Based on an 8bit RISC core, the devices integrate an LCD driver, comparator, regulator, oscillator, 16KB of flash or mask ROM, and 1KB of RAM in an 80-pin TQFP package. They are also available as bare die. A support system, including an ML610Q474 reference board and software development environment, facilitates evaluation.

Further information regarding the ML610Q474 microcontroller can be found here.
