A microcontroller (also MCU or µC) is a computer-on-a-chip. It is a type of microprocessor emphasizing high integration, low power consumption, self-sufficiency and cost-effectiveness, in contrast to a general-purpose microprocessor (the kind used in a PC). In addition to the usual arithmetic and logic elements of a general purpose microprocessor, the microcontroller typically integrates additional elements such as read-write memory for data storage, read-only memory, such as flash for code storage, EEPROM for permanent data storage, peripheral devices, and input/output interfaces.

Microcontrollers are frequently used in automatically controlled products and devices, such as automobile engine control systems, remote controls, office machines, appliances, power tools, and toys.

2. LCD Control
Portfolio of microcontrollers with integrated LCD controllers/drivers is provided in this section.

Product highlights:
• Integrated LCD controllers/drivers for 20 to 640 segments
• Lowest power consumption with up to 10 years' lifetime with a single battery
• Voltage booster for constant contrast at changing supply voltage and/or ambient temperature
• Unused LCD segment lines can be used for I/Os

For very cost-sensitive applications requiring up to 5 MHz clock speed, these microcontrollers are designed.

Significantly higher performance is delivered at up to 20 MHz, by these microcontrollers.

3. CAN Interface
Overview of microcontrollers with one or more integrated CAN controllers is provided in this section.
