EPSON’S FC-12D kHz crystal unit with ultra-low-profile

Epson Europe Electronics GmbH ("Epson") presents the FC-12D kHz crystal unit with ultra-low-profile at only 0.35 mm maximum height, enabling height critical applications such as smart cards to meet the ISO 7810 size standard. Epson’s photolithographic processing technology enables this subminiature size (2.05 x 1.25 x 0.35 mm3) and simultaneously delivers best-in-class ESR (equivalent series resistance) of 75 kΩ max, vital for fast startup and low power.

Smart cards must be low power because they operate from a small battery. For accuracy at low power, FC-12D is designed to achieve low sensitivity to load changes. In addition, smart cards are subject to bending and ESD stress. For strain resistance, Epson’s FC-12D features a ceramic package and a patented 3-point crystal mount. For ESD shielding, FC-12D uses a 4-pin layout with a GND pin connected to a Faraday shield.

FC-12D is available at 32.768 kHz with frequency tolerance from ±10 ppm to ±20 ppm @ 25 °C and load capacitance from 6 pF to 15 pF.

Features

  • 0.35-mm max height
  • Low ESR for fast start up and low power: 75 kΩ max
  • 3-point mount  to resist shock and vibration

Epson shipping samples of a 32-bit microcontroller with dedicated sound hardware

Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE: 6724, "Epson") has begun shipping samples of the S1C31D50, a 32-bit microcontroller with dedicated sound hardware for 2-channel sound. Epson plans to produce 200,000 units per month of each model.

Sound is becoming an increasingly popular feature in home electronics, remote controllers for home appliances, industrial devices, health and fitness equipment with guidance systems, and alarms in office buildings, shopping complexes, and factories. This MCU is ideal for all these applications. An ARM® Cortex®-M0+ processor integrated with a dedicated HW Processor provides 2-channel sound on a single MCU chip. The use of two channels enables music and voice to be played simultaneously, lending audio guidance greater elegance and warmth. Voice speed can also be flexibly adjusted.

The MCU’s dedicated HW Processor sound hardware boasts a pair of special features. First, the HW Processor plays sound without requiring CPU resources, so CPU resources can be allocated to other processes even during sound playback. The use of a high-compression algorithm (16 kbps @ 16 kHz) shrinks the size of sound data memory, making it possible to provide a large amount of sound data and sound data in multiple languages. Epson also offers a PC tool that provides a development environment for easily creating sound data in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean without studio recording. 
Second, the MPU also has a self-memory check function that can detect failures in built-in RAM, built-in Flash, and external SPI-Flash memories without using CPU resources.

Epson is committed to helping its customers improve the performance of their products with solutions that leverage Epson’s efficient, compact, and precision technologies.

* A processor designed by U.K-based ARM Limited, the ARM® Cortex®-M0+ is ARM’s most energy-efficient processor and by far the most widely used processor in the market.
ARM and Cortex are registered trademarks of ARM Limited (or its subsidiaries) in the EU and other countries. All rights reserved.

Key Product Features

1. Dedicated hardware block for independently executing functions. The HW Processor executes the following functions without using CPU resources:

Sound play processing

  • 2-channel mixing sound (for playing background music + voice)
  • Voice speed conversion (playback speed adjustable in 5% increments between 75% and 125%)
  • The sampling rate of 15.625 kHz is high enough for background music as well as voice.
  • High-compression voice decoding algorithm with high sound quality (16/24/32/40 kbps)

Self-memory check function

  • Built-in RAM (R/W check, MARCH-C START)
  • Built-in Flash checksum, CRC
  • External QSPI-Flash checksum, CRC

Simple HW Processor interface

  • Just set functions and commands in the special register and then start

2. Easily add voice later

  • Sound data is easily added simply by writing the sound data and sentence information (sound data number and joining information)

3. Development environment

Epson sound creation PC tool

  • Studio recording is not needed. Simply use the PC tool to create all the sound data you need (languages supported: Japanese, English, Mandarin Chinese, Korean)
  • Sound data, which is assigned a number in the PC tool, can be played back by specifying the assigned number in the HW processor register, so there is no need to create and evaluate codes for linking sound data, etc.
  • Your WAV format sound data is easily imported into the PC tool

Hochgenaues Automotive Echtzeituhr-Modul RA8900

Epson Europe Electronics GmbH („Epson“) präsentiert das Echtzeituhren-Modul RA8900.
Entwickelt für eine genaue Zeitsynchronisation, setzten Epson’s RA8900 Automotive  DTCXO Echtzeituhr-Module (RTC) eine digital temperaturkompensierte Quarzoszillatorschaltung (DTCXO) ein, um eine Ganggenauigkeit von ±3,4 ppm über einem Temperaturbereich von -40 bis +85 °C (9 s/M) zu erreichen.

Epson’s RA8900 hat einen integrierten Quarz und zeichnet sich durch einen geringen Stromverbrauch von 0,7 μA (typ) im Backup-Modus aus.

Diese hohe Genauigkeit ist für die präzise Zeitmessung notwendig, die bei Uhren, Infotainment, Batteriemanagement und anderen Automobilanwendungen gefordert ist.

Um den Zeitzähler auch bei Netzausfall weiter zu betreiben, erkennt Epson’s RX8900 mit einer Betriebsspannung von 2,5-5,5 V den Ausfall der Hauptstromquelle und stellt dann automatisch auf eine externe Backup-Stromversorgung von einer Batterie oder einem Superkondensator mit einer Betriebsspannung von 1,6-5,5 V um.

Epson’s RA8900 ist in einem kleinen Gehäuse von 3,2  x 2,5 x 1,0 mm3 untergebracht und wird auf einer dedizierten Automotive-Produktionslinie hergestellt. Epson’s RA8900 entsprechen allen anwendbaren Automobil-Qualitätsstandards, einschließlich AEC-Q200 Grade 3, ISO9001 und IATF16949.

Besondere Merkmale
