There's a sweet spot between 16-bit
and 3 2-bit processors," says Scott Lynch, operations manager, DSP 0peration--8 & 16 Bit Div.
The Calabasas-based developer of entertainment software for the likes of Nintendo Gameboy and Sega Genesis had hemorrhaged money in the industry's transition from 8-bit to 16-bit
game consoles, and a floundering THQ toy division was pushing the firm's bottom line even further into the red.
Designed to increase the portability of patient and industrial monitors and improve the performance and throughput of automated test equipment (ATE) and data acquisition systems, Analog Devices' AD7980 1-MSPS (mega-sample per second) 16-bit
ADC consumes 80 percent less power and board space than the closest competing 16-bit
ADC in its class.
With this line, Sharp provides four unique microcontrollers with the performance of 32-bit ARM7TDMI-S cores, yet requiring only 16-bit
designed circuit boards and memory devices, saving in system design costs.
Casey Williams still checks out the demos on the 16-bit
Genesis at Game Dude, but the Van Nuys 15-year-old said he isn't spending his video game dollars on Sega anymore.
NASDAQ:MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced that 16 members of its 16-bit
PIC24 microcontroller (MCU) family and 13 members of its dsPIC33 16-bit
digital signal controller (DSC) family are now shipping in volume.
NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced that its dsPIC(R) digital signal controllers (DSCs) and PIC24H microcontrollers (MCUs) are the world's first 16-bit
devices with advanced security features that allow multiple parties in a collaborative system design to share the memory, interrupts and peripherals of a single chip without compromising their intellectual property (IP).
The DT3034 offers 16-bit
measurements on up to 32 single-ended or 16 differential channels with a sampling rate of 500 kHz.
ADC Module Extends Turbolinear(TM) Technology Portfolio -- Ideal for High-Speed and High-Performance Signal Processing in Communications and Industrial Applications
NASDAQ:MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced that it continues the production rollout of its 16-bit
product portfolio with a new dsPIC(R) Digital Signal Controller (DSC) that offers designers a performance speed of 30 million instructions per second (MIPS), self-programming capabilities via Flash memory, and industrial and extended temperature ranges.
It performs 16-bit
signed multiplication and 32-bit addition in one cycle (at 40 MHz) and 16-bit
signed division in five cycles (at 40 MHz).
Ramtron International Corporation (Nasdaq:RMTR), a leading developer and supplier of nonvolatile ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) and integrated semiconductor products, today introduced the VRS51L2070, a fast and flexible 8051-based microcontroller that delivers the power and speed of a 16-bit
MCU without migrating from an 8-bit device.
