March 21, 2019 Alix Paultre

ROHM Group company LAPIS Semiconductor released the ML62Q1300/1500/1700 Group of general-purpose microcontrollers, with a 16-bit CPU core. Targeting consumer and home appliances, alarms, and small industrial equipment, the noise-tolerant devices offer safety features that correspond to 13 industry-leading items (IEC60730 regulations) related to home appliances, including a self-diagnostic function for detecting internal faults.

Starter kits are available to evaluate LCD operation and capacitive switch on an application level, as well as a reference board that allows users to develop customized application programs. Compatible with the LEXIDE-U16 development environment, the kits operate under the open-source Eclipse platform. Based on the open-source Eclipse IDE with CDT (C/C++ Development Tooling) plug-in, the editor function has been enhanced, file operability improved, and a stack size calculation tool has been added.
