Silicon Labs (Austin, TX) has announced that it has expanded its family of 8-bit Si10xx wireless microcontrollers (MCUs) with two new options optimized for both cost-sensitive and performance-intensive designs. By combining its ultra-low-power MCU technology with its sub-GHz EZRadio and EZRadioPRO transceivers in a single-chip solution, Silicon Labs has created new energy-friendly wireless MCUs that achieve industry-leading RF performance with the lowest overall power consumption in their class. Features include:
- Frequency bands from 142 to 1050 MHz.
- Low-power sleep and active modes for extended battery life.
- Priority crossbar decoder gives designers complete control over a variety of functions including a 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC), dual comparators, four 16-bit timers as well as UART, SPI and 12C serial interfaces.
