Mixed-Signal Microcontroller Consumes Low Power
Using a power-saving stop mode, Maxim Integrated Products’ MAXQ2010 16-bit mixed-signal microcontroller reduces power consumption to 370 nA and 6.5 mA max. at 85°C in battery-powered devices. The 100-pin, LQFP-packaged component performs at up to 10 MIPS at 10 MHz with a typical active-mode current of 3.1 mA at 10 MHz and an operating temperature range from -40°C to 85°C. The integrated 12-bit ADC converts data at up to 312 ksps, has a 1.5-V ±2% voltage reference, and can automatically capture and buffer sequences of up to 16 samples without processor intervention. An integrated regulator allows direct operation from a single lithium coin cell from 2.7 V to 3.6 V, and a 32-kHz crystal generates the 8.389-MHz system clock and enables the real-time clock peripheral. Applications include sensors, data acquisition systems, or environmental data-loggers. Pricing starts at $2.95 for 10,000 quantities and above.
