American Semiconductor, a leader in flexible integrated circuits and flexible hybrid systems, has announced the FleX-MCU product family. The FleX-MCU is the world’s first physically flexible microcontroller fabricated using the FleX Silicon-on-Polymer process.
The FleX-MCU is an 8-bit RISC microcontroller with 8KB embedded RAM operating at up to 20MHz with a 1.2V core and 2.5V I/O. It includes multiple serial interface peripherals, including UART, I2C, and SPI.
Pricing and availability
FleX-MCU samples will be available in October 2013 (data sheets are available at www.americansemi.com).
