Infineon expands its MCU portfolio with the 32-bit XMC7000. The latest addition to the Microcontroller (MCU) portfolio from Infineon is a low-power 40-nm process technology MCU family, with compute performance that can address high-end industrial applications.
The XMC7000 is the company’s latest entry into the industrial microcontroller line. This new MCU is equipped with peripherals that include TCPWM, CAN FD, and Gb Ethernet. The peripheral features offer greater flexibility and added value.
This family of MCUs has dual-core and single-core Cortex-M7 Arm cores, with both being supported by an Arm Cortex M0+. The cores enable designers to optimize the end products they are working on, which can be especially demanding and dynamic for devices in the industrial space.
There is also a comprehensive set of security features, along with competitive systems, which make this family of MCUs suitable for high-quality grade platforms. The MCUs in this family of microcontrollers are designed for hard environments with an operating temperature of -40℃ to 125℃ and in parallel are a good choice to power critical applications with the low power mode of 8µA.
The XMC7000 family of MCUs comes in four package sizes and pin types, with 17 part number variants to meet the various needs of the industrial designer.
The architecture of the XMC7000 is built on a low-power 40-nm process technology. It offers best-in-class computer performance levels. This means that it is suitable for high-end industrial applications.
To highlight the features of the MCUs in this family there is Gigabit Ethernet integration, offering real-time ethernet communications. It also provides reliable connectivity for those always on industrial applications.
There are two series in this family of MCUs, the XMC7100, and the XMC7200. It is available in TQFP and LFBGA packages that can scale from 100 to 272 pins. This addresses the industrial market needs and can be used in motor control, I/O applications, and digital power conversion.
