8-bit and 16-bit Proprietary Microcontrollers (MCUs)

Cypress Portfolio of F2MC 8-bit Proprietary Core MCUs

​Cypress's F2MC NEW 8FX MCU is a high-performance, 8-bit microcontroller with different sizes of embedded Flash memory. The most recent devices use the F2MC-8FX CISC CPU, which offers industry-leading performance for 8-bit microcontrollers, and enables for more instructions to be executed per cycle. 

These MCUs have been supported for over 10 years, implemented into applications such as white goods, power tools, sub-MCUs and motor control, and offers an effective cost versus performance line up.


Cypress Portfolio of F2MC 16-bit Proprietary Core MCUs 

Cypress’s single-chip, 16-bit microcontroller series offer a flexible, scalable family concept approach for a variety of automotive and industrial applications.  These MCUs have the 16FX CPU in common. The combination of different Flash, ROM and RAM sizes with different mixtures of peripherals saves development time and costs. The product lines are F2MC-16FX and its predecessor family F2MC-16LX.

The F2MC-16FX portfolio and the F2MC-16LX portfolio features a 16-bit CISC architecture for optimized performance and low power consumption. The wide product range is appropriate for a variety of applications, from automotive devices that support the Controller Area Network (CAN) to industrial and consumer applications including systems controllers and sub-controllers for audio visual equipment, white goods, office equipment, and industrial equipment.
