xCORE-Analog is a range of multicore microcontrollers optimized specifically for designers of industrial products, including smart interfaces, high-level sensors and actuators, PLCs, communications devices and motor controllers. Developers can use the new multicore microcontrollers to quickly develop their products, with a level of multicore compute scaled to their exact requirements.
The xCORE A-Series devices include up to eight channels of 12-bit, 1 MSPS analog-to-digital conversion; power-on reset, brown-out protection and watchdog facilities; integrated oscillator; deep sleep memory; and integrated DC/DC converter. These features combine to reduce the number of external components required and to allow designs to be implemented using simple two-layer printed circuit boards. The devices’ power management features enable low sleep-mode power consumption of 100 µA.
