MCU for Fan Control Applications
Zilog announced its Z8F083A series flash microcontroller (MCU) for fan control and universal motor control applications, offering an optimized feature set and scalability. The series offers a single-pin on-chip debugger (OCD) port for in-system Flash programming and debugging. The family supports up to 8 Kbytes of Flash memory, 256 bytes of register RAM, and it is pin-for-pin compatible with other members of the Z8 Encore! XP family, allowing a migration path from 1 Kbytes up to 12 Kbytes. The series also includes a targeted peripheral set featuring an up to eight channel, fast 2.8 ums successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC), an on-chip 20 MHz internal precision oscillator and 100 bytes of non-volatile data storage (NVDS) for storing system parameters or user data.
