Microcontrollers Offer Greater Control Performance and Additional Connectivity



Mouser Electronics, Inc., is now stocking the XMC1400 industrial series microcontrollers from Infineon Technologies. Members of Infineon’s XMC1000 family of microcontrollers, the XMC1400 series devices offer greater control performance and additional connectivity tailored to applications such as LED lighting, digital power conversion, motor control, industrial automation, and human-machine interfaces (HMI).

The Infineon XMC1400 microcontrollers, available from Mouser Electronics, are real-time-capable devices based on a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 core with comprehensive peripheral functionality. Offering up to 200 kBytes of flash and 16 kBytes of RAM, the 48MHz microcontrollers deliver a set of highly flexible peripherals, including timers, PWM modules, and analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that can operate at double frequency (96MHz).

Specific to industrial control, the devices contain Capture/Compare Units 8 (CCU8) for complex pulse-width modulation (PWM), Capture/Compare Units 4 (CCU4) for signal monitoring and PWM, two position interfaces (POSIF) for motor positioning, high speed analog comparators, and a Brightness and Color Control Unit (BCCU) for flicker-free digital dimming and color control of LEDs. The devices offer standard communications interfaces such as UART, I2C, SPI, LIN and I2S. The XMC1403 and XMC1404 microcontrollers also offer two CAN nodes with 32 message objects.

Infineon’s XMC1400 microcontrollers are specified at minus 40 to 105 degrees Celsius ambient temperature for robustness in industrial environments, and ships with a complimentary Infineon DAVE toolchain with low-level drivers and apps.
