Innovative technical features and application advantages of N32G/N32L series products:
1. Innovatively launched the MCU security mechanism, with the help of the leading advantages in the security field, it supports a variety of security technologies embedded in the MCU, and the technology leads the wide application of the Internet of Things:
– MCU technology application innovation with security functions: support for a variety of security functional units, support for secure boot, multi-user partition management, secure storage, multiple high-speed encryption and decryption algorithms, system real-time security detection, etc. Provide security for the stable operation of the system, and provide basic capability support for data storage and transmission.
– Supports multiple security encryption and decryption algorithms: the first to support national/international dual-encryption algorithms. Compared with traditional software algorithms, the performance is improved by more than 10 times, the system resource consumption is reduced by more than 5 times, and faster hardware acceleration is achieved.
– High performance: Under the same main frequency, it has excellent instruction processing capability, which can realize instruction fetch and execution without waiting, and the system runs faster.
– High integration: It integrates a variety of analog peripherals, power management circuits, digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital circuits, and has the advantage of lower solution BOM cost.
2.Industry-leading high-performance MCU low-power technology
—For the high-performance MCU field, the multi-power domain technology and dynamic voltage adjustment technology are used in the process to achieve extremely low leakage, achieving an excellent balance between power consumption and performance, with standby power consumption as low as 1uW and dynamic power consumption as low as 60uA/MHz .
– Microsecond-level startup and fast transition of power modes, with faster MCU response processing capabilities.
3. The integration degree on a single chip has reached the best balance, and the technical solutions such as the single-chip non-magnetic smart meter solution, the 6-in-1 single-chip security smart door lock solution, and the multi-motor FOC control solution based on the N32G/N32L series MCU are leading the industry. sex.
The N32G/N32L series of general-purpose security MCU products have now released more than 70 mass-produced models, which have been recognized by important customers and mass-produced in many industries. At the same time, more models are being developed one after another, aiming to cover all directions and a full range of applications, providing complete solutions and service support for the industry and customers.
