Cyan Technology has introduced a microcontroller (MCU) family to its eCOG range, featuring on-chip flash and peripherals including USB 2.0 OTG and a 10/100Mbps Ethernet media access controller (MAC). The 16bit, 75MHz eCOG1X offers 45MIPS processing performance representing a threefold increase on current eCOG devices.

A feature of the product's CyanIDE development tool is the 'Switch-Chip' function, which allows designers to move applications between different MCUs in the Cyan range with a single button click. Cyan claims this maximizes design re-use and minimizes the time required for device selection.

"The eCOG1X is suitable for motor control applications because of its dual ADCs, which can simultaneously sample analogue inputs with between 6bits and 12bits resolution, and for 3-phase motors there's a dedicated six channel PWM output," said Paul Barwick, sales director for Cyan. "Point of sale developers will spot the two smart card interfaces with 5V tolerant I/O."

With flash memory options ranging from 128Kbytes to 512KBytes and connectivity features, the eCOG1X also has a new analogue section including two 12bit DACs with a 4μs settling time, an LCD controller with support for direct and multiplexed drive of 1 to 4 backplane lines, and the eICE built-in emulator for programming the internal flash.

The initial packages will include 68-pin and 100-pin QFN, and 144-pin BGA. Production devices will ship this year with further packages and options being introduced throughout 2006. As with all eCOG devices, development boards and reference designs will be available.
