Nuvoton low power 8051 series

May 12, 2020

The NuMicro® ML51 low-power series is an enhanced 1T 8051 core microcontroller with built-in Flash. The typical power consumption in normal operation mode can reach 80 μA / MHz and the power consumption in sleep mode can be less than 1 μA. This series has a maximum speed of up to 24 MHz, and a built-in 38.4 kHz low-speed internal oscillator, supporting a wide voltage operating range of 1.8 V to 5.5 V, operating temperature:-40 ℃ to 105 ℃.


NuMicro® ML51 series is not only low-power but also rich in many features such as 12-bit 500 KSPS SAR ADC and up to two sets of comparators, built-in fourth-order reference voltage for ADC and ACMP, and built-in DMA acceleration data To reduce the burden on the CPU. In addition, NuMicro® ML51 series contains highly integrated peripherals such as two serial ports, two smart card interfaces, two I²C and two SPI.

NuMicro® ML51 has built-in 16 KB ~ 64 KB Flash memory and 1 ~ 4 KB SRAM. Pins from 10 to 64 are available in a variety of packages, and are compatible with 32-bit microcontrollers with the same package pins, making selection and upgrading more convenient.

Target application:Wearable devices, home automation, Internet of Things devices, fire smoke detection, battery management, remote control, wireless charging, etc.
