An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Microcontrollers designed for multi-applications from NXP Semiconductors, which we summarised at the time by saying "NXP Semiconductors has launched the SmartMX2, a range of secure microcontrollers designed for applications such as e-government, banking, pay TV, mobile transactions and public transport. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Motor control demonstration kit for drive systems from MSC Vertriebs: "MSC is offering an extensively equipped RX62T motor control demonstration kit for brushless DC motors, tailored to the needs of modern drive controls. ".

In November 2010, we covered the news from MSC Vertriebs - take a look at MSC Vertriebs offers Renesas RX600 MCUs which says: "MSC Vertriebs is offering products from the RX600 series of 32-bit microcontrollers from Renesas: the RX360 group for consumer and office automation; and the RX63N/RX631 group for networked equipment.".

Take a look also at the news release from Renesas Technology, MCUs for integration in factory automation systems, as well as Congatec expands Congatec-AG COM Express range from Congatec, and LSI adds processor core and memory blocks to range from LSI Europe.
