4-bit to 32-bit low power microcontrollers
The technologies of low voltage operation and low power consumption acquired over the years through the development of 4-bit microcontrollers for watches and electronic shelf labels (ESL) are inherited by 16- and 32-bit microcontrollers today. The product lineup has been expanded, while achieving better throughputs. The display functions range from small-sized segment LDC drive to QVGA color display. A wide array of sensor interfaces recently attracting attention are also available. In addition to digital SIO such as SPI, UART, and I2C and the low power ADCs, the Epson original frequency conversion type ADC is capable of supporting measurements by resistance thermometer sensors and humidity sensors. A variety of these functions, low power technology and a highly efficient processor are all built into a single chip. With this one-chip solution, Epson continues to offer optimum products for small-sized battery-driven equipment, operation panel controllers, and sensor built-in healthcare products and housing equipment.
