Infineon Technologies has launched two new families of industrial microcontrollers built on a low power 40nm embedded flash memory process technology.

The XMC7000 family is aimed at industrial applications including industrial drives, electrical vehicle (EV) charging, two-wheel electrical vehicles and robotics with peripherals such as CAN FD, TC-PWM and Gigabit Ethernet. The move to 40nm provides more availability.

The series offers single and dual core options of 350MHz 32-bit ARM Cortex-M7 alongside a 100MHz ARM Cortex-M0+ core, with up to 8 MB of embedded flash and 1 MB of on-chip SRAM.

The devices operate from 2.7 to 5.5 V with the lowest power mode consuming 8 μA across a temperature range of -40°C to 125°C for harsh environments.

“Today’s modern industrial devices require increased compute performance and peripherals without compromising quality and robustness,” said Steve Tateosian, Vice President of IoT, Compute and Wireless Business Unit of Infineon. “Infineon’s new XMC7000 devices delivers on these requirements, specifically with the company’s system level expertise with software and tools for the industrial market. As a leader in microcontrollers, we are excited to extend this new family with innovative features for tomorrow’s industrial applications.”

Infineon’s XMC7000 family is an extension of the industrial control focused XMC family of MCUs. The XMC7100 includes 4 MB Flash, 768 kB RAM and 250 MHz single or dual-core in different QFP packages (100, 144 or 176 pins) or 272-pin BGA package.

The XMC7200 includes 8 MB Flash, 1 MB RAM, 350 MHz single- or dual-core in a 176-pin QFP or 272-pin BGA package.

The controllers are compatible with Infineon’s latest ModusToolbox 3.0 development platform, which also supports other embedded devices such as the PSoC, AIROC WiFi, AIROC Bluetooth, and EZ-PD™ PMG1 microcontrollers. ModusToolbox 3.0 can be downloaded here.

Infineon’s XMC700 family is available now and will be shown at electronica 2022.
