Fujitsu Enhances FM3 Family of 32-bit Microcontrollers with the Release of 93 New Products

Fujitsu enhances its FM3 Family of 32-bit microcontrollers with the release of 93 new products which support a broad range of applications, from household appliances to mobile equipment.

Langen, Germany, 27 September, 2012 – Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU) today announced the launch of the fifth wave of products in its FM3 Family of 32-bit RISC microcontrollers based on the ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor core. In total, Fujitsu Semiconductor is releasing 93 new products in its High Performance and Low Power Group for a vast variety of applications.

The High Performance Group with a total of 72 new products that include the MB9B520M Series, the MB9BF524MPMC has been designed to enable simple and cost efficient inverter control, making products from the group optimal choices for household appliances, office automation equipment, and industrial equipment.

The Low Power Group with a total of 21 new products that include the MB9A150R Series, the MB9AF156RPMC is a product line that meets the demand for low-power consumption. It contains an optimal range of products for the low-power demands of consumer devices, including battery-powered mobile products, digital home appliances, and healthcare products.

The new products will be made incrementally available in sample quantities starting September 28, 2012. With the addition of these new MCUs, Fujitsu semiconductor”s top class ARM® Cortex™-M3 based microcontroller line-up will contain 463 products in total. Fujitsu Semiconductor plans to continue expanding the product line to reach more than 500 products by the end of April 2013.

Product Overview
High Performance Group: MB9B520M/320M/120M Series
With a clock speed of up to 72MHz and a rich array of peripheral functions, Fujitsu Semiconductor has added a line-up of products to the High Performance Group of the FM3 Family. In addition to inverter control functionality, products in the series are equipped with CAN, USB 2.0, a real-time clock and two independent 12-bit ADC units with up to 26 channels. Flash memory is available from 96KB to 288KB variations, including Dual Operation Flash for EEPROM emulation, as well as packaging from 48-pin to 96-pin configurations.

The series” feature mix ideally fits to Fujitsu”s solution groups FM3inverter, FM3connect and FM3touch. Sophisticated software and hardware components are offered in conjunction with the MCU products to enable a quick start-up of applications in the area of motor control, connectivity and HMI (human machine interface). The series covers applications such as household appliances, like air conditioners, refrigerators, and washing machines or capacitive touch man-machine interfaces in general consumer and industrial electronics, as well as CAN-enabled network communications and all kind of USB solutions.

Low Power Group: MB9A150R Series
The Low Power Group is a line of energy-efficient products that achieve low-voltage operations for reducing power consumption during operation and for battery-powered devices. The MB9A150R Series features enhanced flash memory and pin counts compared to the existing line-up of products within the Low Power Group, with flash memory available from 288KB to 544KB, including Dual Operation Flash for EEPROM emulation and packaging from 80-pin to 120-pin variations. The series is also equipped with a host of peripheral functions, such as a real-time clock and HDMI-CEC. Furthermore, in addition to battery-powered devices, the series supports AV applications required for controlling digital connectivity among AV devices and digital consumer electronics.
