    • Development Kit for C8051F36x Small MCU


    The C8051F360 Development Kit is intended as a development platform for the microcontrollers in the C8051F36x MCU family.

    The target board included in this kit is provided with a pre-soldered C8051F360 MCU (LQFP48 package). Code developed on the C8051F360 can be easily ported to the other members of this MCU family. The C8051F36x family of devices are code-compatible with the C8051F330/1/2/3/4/5 family of devices.

    Silicon Labs' C8051F36x small MCU devices are fully integrated mixed-signal microcontrollers. With on-chip Power-On Reset, VDD Monitor, Watchdog Timer and clock oscillator, the C8051F36x 8-bit MCUs are truly stand-alone System-on-a-Chip solutions. The Flash memory can be reprogrammed even in-circuit, providing non-volatile data storage and also allowing field upgrades of the 8051 firmware. User software has complete control of all peripherals, and may individually shut down any or all peripherals for power savings.

      • In-system programmable in 1024-byte Sectors1024 bytes are reserved in the 32 kB devices
    • Digital Peripherals
      • up to 39 Port I/O; All 5 V tolerant with high sink current
      • Hardware enhanced UART, SMBus™, and enhanced SPI™ serial ports
      • Four general purpose 16-bit counter/timers
      • 16-Bit programmable counter array (PCA) with six capture/compare modules
      • Real time clock mode using PCA or timer and external clock source
      • External Memory Interface (EMIF)
    • Clock Sources
      • Two internal oscillators:
        • 24.5 MHz with ±2% accuracy supports crystal-less UART operation
        • 80/40/20/10 kHz low frequency, low power
