Renesas and Micrium’s “The Power of Two” Campaign Continues by Popular Demand
Renesas and Micrium join forces to present an exciting offer for production users of Renesas' flagship RX and RL78 MCUs. RX and RL78 customers can get a free, single production license for Micrium’s real-time deterministic multitasking Kernel (uC/OS-II or uC/OS-III) and middleware (TCP/IP, USB, File System and others) plus free support and maintenance from Micrium at no cost during your one year development period. The new customer project must use a Renesas RX or RL78 MCU product and it must be used in a commercial application. Read More

GainSpan Unveils Industry First Wi-Fi® and ZigBee® IP Single Chip
GainSpan Corporation, a leader in low power Wi-Fi for the Internet of Things, unveiled the GS2000, the industry’s first single chip solution bringing together two IEEE low power standard wireless technologies: Wi-Fi® (802.11b/g/n) and 802.15.4. The GS2000 is a highly integrated System on a Chip (SoC) containing multi-standard RF as well as both 802.11b/g/n and 802.15.4 PHY/MAC functionality, dual ARM® Cortex® -M3 processors, networking stack and services, and large memory size to support various application profiles—all on a single silicon die. The new Wi-Fi and ZigBee® IP chip will accelerate the development and market adoption of home networked devices. Read More
Lattice Announces World's Smallest FPGA for Miniature Systems
Lattice has introduced the tiny iCE40™LP384 FPGA, the smallest member of their expanding iCE40 family of ultra-low density FPGAs.
The tiny, low power, low cost iCE40 LP384 FPGA has a capacity of 384 LUTs; consumes 25-Microwatts static core power; comes in packages as small as 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm with a migration path to 2.0 mm x 2.0 mm and costs less than 50 cents per unit in multi-million unit quantities.
The new iCE40 LP384 FPGA lets you add new features to your mobile design in an instant, and is ideal for applications such as portable medical monitors, smartphones, digital cameras, eReaders, and compact embedded systems. Designed from the ground up for low power, iCE40 devices will maximize battery life and minimize power consumption.
The iCE40 LP384 FPGA offers the perfect architecture for capturing and processing large amounts of data at hardware speeds while using very little power and board space. It deftly handles system tasks such as managing sensor interfaces, adapting to new interface standards, and offloading the CPU without requiring fully custom-designed chips. Read More
