Micro/sys Releases the First StackableUSB™ Host Microcontroller

Share Article

Micro/sys continues to lead the way in StackableUSB product development with its release of the first Host microcontroller equipped with the cutting-edge StackableUSB architecture. In an embedded world where space is a vanishing luxury, this new USB1032 industrial-grade microcontroller allows OEMs to fit their control system within a mere 1.85" x 1.78" footprint, which is one-quarter the size of the 104™ Form Factor. Powered by the Microchip PIC32, the USB1032 provides 125 DMIPS performance while using only 100mA of power. This creates the perfect solution for applications needing more performance than a typical microcontroller without the burden of additional space and power that would be required for a single-board computer.

This creates the perfect solution for applications needing more performance than a typical microcontroller without the burden of additional space and power that would be required for a single-board computer.

Although tiny in size, the USB1032 offers a wealth of features. The 80MHz system clock, 512 KB flash, 32KB SRAM of memory, and onboard RS232 transceiver provide design engineers the appropriately-matched support and throughput for their embedded system. Additional features include a 10-bit ADC, eight (8) programmable LEDs, digital I/O, and the PIC32's easy-to-use and solidly supported software tools. These features provide easy development and shorter time-to-market. The USB1032 offers industrial OEMs all the functions they have come to expect from their CPUs, but in a more compact, power-efficient board that offers -40° to +85° C operation.

For applications requiring additional capabilities, the USB1032 can easily and cost-effectively stack one or more (up to 10) of the various StackableUSB Client-side industrial I/O. A simple I/O solution can be added starting at under $100. Connecting via StackableUSB, an OEM using the tiny USB1032 as a Host can now create a powerful system ideally suited for military-grade environments in a space smaller than a 2" cube.

The basic USB1032 starts at $195 in single quantity. Significant OEM discounts are available. Contact Technical Sales Dept., Micro/sys, Inc., 3730 Park Place, Montrose, CA 91020, phone (818) 244-4600, FAX (818) 244-4246, email: info@embeddedsys.com, URL: http://www.embeddedsys.com.
