Tokyo, September 6, 2001--- Fujitsu Limited today introduced two new products in its F2MC® (Fujitsu Flexible Microcontroller) series of microcontrollers for system control applications. The two new models (MB90F387 and MB90387) are 16-bit microcontrollers designed for a wide range of automobile controls, including those for side mirrors and power seats, with the exception only of drive related controls.
The new products meet the CAN*1 (Controller Area Network) standard of automobile-based LANs and are available in 48-pin LQFP-48*2 packages-Fujitsu's smallest package for 16-bit microcontrollers-achieving a 30% smaller package size (7mm x 7mm) than previous models.
Today's automobiles are equipped with a wide variety of electronic control circuits for control and display devices. With an automobile-based LAN, the complex controls for these electronic circuits are able to operate efficiently. CAN, which features both speed and reliability, is the most widely-used standard for automobile-based LANs. Fujitsu has been developing CAN microcontrollers since 1996, and has been selling a variety of CAN microcontrollers worldwide since 1998, particularly in Europe.
Fujitsu will continue to reduce the number of parts and size of its F2MC series of microcontrollers to make the task of designing systems easier for its customers. The company also plans to enhance its product line-up for such fields as automobiles and digital AV/car audio.
