where [AV.sub.IN] is the analog input voltage and [AV.sub.REF-], [AV.sub.REF+] are the microcontroller
reference voltages (Figure 3).
Because the internal CR oscillating circuit (precision level +/-2%) that runs the operating clock and the low-voltage detection circuit that detects a drop in voltage are built into the microcontrollers
, the need for an external oscillator and reset IC is eliminated, thus contributing to a reduction in overall system costs.
"Our longstanding relationship with Microchip Technology has been beneficial to both parties, and we are proud to be the recipient of their 2 billionth PICmicro microcontroller
," said Ken Fox, vice president and general manager, Carrier Electronics.
Consequently, the demand and adoption of automotive microcontrollers
will also increase.
Growth of the automotive sector is driven by an increase in the number of luxury cars that use advanced microcontrollers
. Apart from the automotive sector, the product is used in consumer electronics and healthcare sectors, among others.
In the figure given below, RE0, RE1 and RE2 are connected to E port of microcontroller
to detect malfunction in phase sequence.

The DAC converters in microcontrollers
are usually 8 to 12 bits wide while allowing external reference voltages to be used.
can also be used to generate a PWM waveform for three-phase inverter control [4-6].
The addition of flash memory to most microcontroller
families has simplified a host of tasks ranging from rapid prototyping to in-field product updates.

The transaction will cover the microcontroller
design and development business and a factory in Japan, Reuters said.
