MANUCO Electronics , representing Sharp, has upgraded the operating range for its BlueStreak ARM9-based 32-bit System-on-Chip devices.
The 245MHz LH7A400 and 266MHz LH7A404 are now fully qualified from -40°C to +85°C, making them ideal for industrial applications.
This expanded temperature range for the high-speed SoCs demonstrates Sharp's ongoing commitment to meet its customers' design needs for advanced, high-performance components.
This performance enhancement enables the SoCs to operate in industrial applications on the factory floor and in outdoor conditions.
Applications for these components include process control and programmable logic control systems for factory automation, human machine interfaces such as ATMs, outdoor kiosks used for mass-transit and public information and security/surveillance.
The LH7A400/LH7A404's high processing power and comprehensive features are designed to fulfill many different application needs, offering an exceptional level of integration and extremely low power consumption.
Combined with a low system cost, the SoCs provide reliable solutions to industrial design challenges.
Sharp's LH7A400/LH7A404 SoCs are also ideally suited for next-generation mobile devices such as handheld gaming, portable media players and portable DVD players. These components also offer outstanding performance for PDAs, GPS devices, instrumentation and portable medical equipment.
Based on the popular ARM922TTM core, Sharp's SoCs peripherals include a programmable LCD controller with integrated touch screen support plus many more features.
