ASIX Electronics Corp. has announced the availability of what it claims as the industry\'s smallest single-chip embedded Ethernet MCU housed in 8-by-8mm 80-pin TFBGA package. The AX11005BF integrates a high performance 8bit MCU with 512KB of flash memory, TCP/IP and 10/100M Fast Ethernet MAC/PHY.
The latest member of the ASIX AX110xx family, AX11005BF provides a tiny form-factor single-chip solution to allow embedded system designers to implement low power, high performance embedded and industrial Ethernet applications for the growing embedded networking markets with minimum board space, cost and complexity such as applications for remote control or remote monitoring.
The TFBGA package of AX11005BF can prevent unauthorised signal pin probing or easy replacement of the device on board, which provide additional advantages for security protection for confidential data transfer on package pins or program code stored in the embedded flash memory.
Limited samples of the AX11005BF are available now. The chips are RoHS-compliant.
