|ROHM Semiconductor's ML610Q400 series is made up of high performance CMOS 8-bit microcontrollers built-in with Lapis Semiconductor's original RISC 8-bit CPU "U8 Core." The CPU core is capable of efficient instruction execution with one instruction per one cycle clock operation. This family of products is popular for battery-driven hand-held type applications and in a variegated field.
This series has Flash memory that operates at only 1 V based on Lapis Semiconductor's proprietary low power technology. Fine power management, along with a highly-efficient CPU in the RISC architecture, reduces the power consumption. With built-in LCD driver, 2 A/D converters, on-chip debug function, this product is suitable for small portable devices with LCD display, such as wrist watch, pedometer, heart rate monitor, and thermostat. The rewritable Flash memory microcontroller shortens the development/production time; the low power feature delivers a smaller/lighter battery; and a variety of built-in peripheral circuits minimize a device size. This product can be operated under a wider operating temperature range (-40°C to 85°C) so that it can be used in industrial electronics, such as a data logger for food temperature management.
