Cypress semiconductor has added two new series to its FM0+ family of flexible microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ core. The new FM0+ S6E1B-Series and S6E1C-Series microcontrollers (MCUs) deliver Cortex-M3/M4-class peripherals at a low, 40uA/MHz active current consumption. The S6E1B-Series features the industry's largest memory size for a Cortex-M0+ device and supports reliable and secure machine-to-machine (M2M) communication for the Internet of Things, while the S6E1C-Series is optimized for wearables and a wide range of ultra-low-power, battery-powered products.

Key Features of the Cypress FM0+ MCU Portfolio:

• A 64-channel descriptor-based direct memory access (DMA) controller to efficiently move data between peripherals and RAM without any CPU intervention
• Up to 6-channel multi-function serial interfaces (UART/I2C/SPI), a 1-channel USB Host or Device, AES encryption, a 2-channel HDMI-CEC, a 2-channel Smart Card interface and I2S for digital audio.
• Analog peripherals including an 8-channel, 1Msps, 12-bit SAR ADC, a 1% high-precision crystal oscillator and an LCD controller with voltage boost.


The new FM0+ S6E1B-Series and S6E1C-Series MCUs are now sampling, the devices are available in small QFN and QFP packages with an even smaller, 6.4mm2 wafer-level chip scale (WLCSP) will be available in the first quarter of 2016.
