Freescale Unveils Kinetis KL02, an Ultra Small (1.9×2.0mm) ARM Cortex M0+ Microcontroller

Freescale Semiconductor introduced the Kinetis KL02, the world’s smallest ARM MCU, at Embedded World 2013. KL02 is an ARM Cortex M0+ micro-controller designed to address the miniaturization needs of the Internet of things, and its size (1.9×2.0mm) makes it suitable for applications such as ingestible healthcare sensing, portable consumer devices, remote sensing nodes, and wearable devices.   Kinetis KL02 MCU features include: 48 MHz ARM Cortex-M0+ core, 1.71-3.6V operation Bit manipulation engine for faster, more code-efficient handling of peripheral registers 32 KB flash memory, 4 KB RAM High-speed 12-bit analog-to-digital converter High-speed analog comparator Low-power UART, SPI, 2x IICI2C Powerful timers for a broad range of applications including motor control Power Efficiency – 15.9 CM/mA (Coremark 1.0) -40 °C to +85 °C operation The MCU is manufactured using chip-scale package (CSP) technology that allows to connect the die directly to the solder ball interconnects and, in turn, to the printed circuit board (PCB). Freescale explains “this removes the need for …

ISEE Introduces IGEP COM CYGNUS & AQUILA Powered by TI Sitara AM335x Processor

ISEE will officially launch and showcase 2 new computers-on-module at Embedded World 2013 on February 26-28, in Nuremberg, Germany: IGEP COM CYGNUS and IGEP COM AQUILA. Both CoM shares the same characteristics except the former is powered by TI Sitara AM3352 (Cortex A8, no GPU) and the later by TI Sitara AM3354 (Cortex A8 + PowerVR GPU). This makes the CYGNUS suited for cost sensitive applications such as industrial control, home automation, and test and measurement devices, and the AQUILA for applications that requires more advanced graphics and multimedia capabilities such as gaming, auto infotainment and navigation devices. The key specifications of the 2 modules are as follows: Processor – Texas instruments Sitara AM3352 Cortex A8 @ 720 Mhz (CYGNUS) and AM3354 Cortex A8 @ 720 Mhz + PowerVR SGX GPU (AQUALIA) System memory – 256 MB DDR3 SDRAM, 303 MHz, 16-bit Storage – 128 MB SLC NAND FLASH + on-board micro-SD socket Networking – 1x Ethernet PHY Debug Interface …
