An addition to Toshiba Electronics Europe's TX04 series of ARM Cortex®-M4F core-based microcontrollers, the TMPM411F20XBG MCU facilitates electric power calculation and communication in smart meters, as well as sensing and communications in other measurement devices.
Embedded Office, a specialist company for embedded systems that specialises in safety-critical applications, has extended the range of its Cert-Kits and is now offering a component for the µC/OS-II OS, pre-certified on the 16-bit microcontroller C167 from Infineon.
Building on its Embedded Video Engine (EVE) technology FTDI Chip is introducing a series of Arduino-compatible development platforms. The VM800P series (where P signifies PLUS) gives engineers everything necessary to implement more effective human machine interfaces (HMIs) including display, audio and touch elements, and data processing aspects.
Eight-bit microcontrollers, while on the decline from the application perspective, are not dead. The latest prove is STMicroelectronics' latest product roll-out in this segment. Members of of ST's STM8A family, they score with a sweeping feature set customised for automotive applications and high cost-effectiveness.
