Fujitsu Semiconductor Expands Lineup of 8-bit LCD Driving Microcontroller, 8-bit Microcontroller compatible with 8COM Segment Display LCD Controller

Applicable to dashboard panels of household appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines and microwave ovens


Singapore, November 25, 2010 — Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia Pte Ltd (FSAL) today announced the forthcoming release of a new series of high performance 8-bit microcontrollers with segment-display LCD controller built in. This new series is regarded as a member of the F²MC-8FX family. This series includes 12 products from the 64-pin MB95470 series and 6 products from the 80-pin MB95410 series. Samples of these new products are available in early November 2010 and product shipment will commence in January next year.

With the growing popularity of segment-display panels in household appliances such as air-conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators and microwave ovens, instruments such as a temperature controller with an attached LCD display are becoming a trend, which raises the need for a low-cost microcontroller with LCD control function.

To meet market demand, Fujitsu Semiconductor has developed the 64-pin MB95470 Series and the 80-pin MB95410 Series, of which the operating conditions are 2.4 V ~ 5.5 V. Based on the 8-bit microcontroller of the F²MC-8FX family, this series of products incorporates flash memory with security functions, as well as LCD control capabilities.

In addition to the LCD control function, the MB95470 Series and MB95410 Series products are also equipped with highly compatible timers, analog comparator, high precision AC/DC converter and oscillation circuit, aiming to significantly lower the cost on the customer’s side by reducing system configuration components.

As these products adopt the 1-wire on-chip debug function, users only have to use a small number of pins to perform debugging during product development.

Product Features

Incorporation of LCD control function
All products in the MB95470 Series and the MB95410 Series are equipped with LCD control function which is necessary for Liquid-Crystal Displays. Users can select their desired products according to the LCD segment number.

Internalization of peripheral components helps reduce cost
Low cost of the overall system is achieved by the internalization of the peripheral oscillator and reset Ics. This is achieved by incorporating a CR oscillation circuit, low-voltage detection circuit and watchdog timer circuit. The CR oscillator circuit ensures oscillation precision of ±2%.

Embedding of high performance flash memory
Embedding flash memory allows 100,000 cycles of data write/erase which can be performed even when the program is running. Data retention time is 20 years. The flash memory comes with a security function which ensures customers’ intellectual property protection by preventing unauthorized access to the end-product’s software.
