Mixed-Signal 32KB ISP FLASH MCU Family
The C8051F000 family are fully integrated mixed-signal System on a Chip MCUs with a true 12-bit multi-channel ADC (F000/01/02/05/06/07), or a true 10-bit multi-channel ADC (F010/11/12/15/16/17). See the Product Selection Guide in Table 1.1 for a quick reference of each MCUs’ feature set. Each has a programmable gain pre-amplifier, two 12-bit DACs, two voltage comparators (except for the F002/07/12/17, which have one), a voltage reference, and an 8051-compatible microcontroller core with 32kbytes of FLASH memory. There are also I2C/SMBus, UART, and SPI serial interfaces implemented in hardware (not “bit-banged” in user software) as well as a Programmable Counter/Timer Array (PCA) with five capture/compare modules. There are also 4 general-purpose 16-bit timers and 4 byte-wide general-purpose digital Port I/O. The C8051F000/01/02/10/11/12 have 256 bytes of RAM and execute up to 20MIPS, while the C8051F005/06/07/15/16/17 have 2304 bytes of RAM and execute up to 25MIPS.
With an on-board VDD monitor, WDT, and clock oscillator, the MCUs are truly stand-alone System-on-a-Chip solutions. Each MCU effectively configures and manages the analog and digital peripherals. The FLASH memory can be reprogrammed even in-circuit, providing non-volatile data storage, and also allowing field upgrades of the 8051 firmware. Each MCU can also individually shut down any or all of the peripherals to conserve power.
