Spansion Targets Industrial IoT with MCU Expansion

20 October 2014

Spansion has added 96 new products to its FM4 family of microcontrollers (MCUs) based on the ARM Cortex-MF4 core targeted at the Internet of Things (IoT) and other applications.

The MCUs feature a 200 MHz operating frequency and support on-chip peripherals for human machine interfaces (HMIs) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. Included in the MCUs are a 16kB flash accelerator, up to 2MB of flash and 256 KB of SRAM memory and support for a dozen different communications and memory interfaces such as Ethernet, CAN and CAN-FD, NOR, NAND, SDRAM and SRAM memory devices, secure digital input output (SDIO), full-speed USB, Integrated Interchip Sound (I2S), HDMI and general purpose serial interface.

With this set of peripherals and large memory allotment, Spansion said the MCUs allow for single-chip offerings for a wide variety of applications including factory automation, industrial IoT, motor control, office automation, building management systems, smart meters, digital cameras and multi-function printers.

Dhiraj Handa, senior VP and GM of Spansion’s Multi-Market Microcontroller business, said in a statement that the features in the MCUs are ideal for M2M communications and IoT and “the dual-bank flash array allows seamless over-the-air (OTA) in-application reprogramming.”

The Spansion S6E2C MCU series is available for sampling with production volumes scheduled for availability in the first quarter of next year priced at $10.00 per unit in 1,500 unit quantities.
