EM6580- Multi I/O, Flash-based MCU

Cost effective and compact flash MCU in SO-8/14 package - Ultra-Low Power

General Description

The EM6580 is a low power Flash 4-bit microcontroller coming in a small 8-pin SO package and working up to 0.4 MIPS. It comes with an integrated 4-bit ADC and 2 high drive outputs of 10 mA and it requires no external component. It has a sleep counter reset allowing automatic wake-up from sleep mode. It is designed for use in battery-operated and field-powered applications requiring an extended lifetime. A high integration level make it an ideal choice for cost sensitive applications. The EM6580 contains the equivalent of 8 kB of Flash memory and a RC oscillator with frequencies between 32 to 800 kHz. It also has a power-on reset, watchdog timer, 10 bit up/down counter, PWM and several clock functions. Development tools include windows-based simulator program debugger, assembler and real time emulator.
