C8051F96x Ultra-Low Power Microcontroller​

The C8051F96x family is the lowest power, most advanced MCU solution for power sensitive embedded systems used in battery-powered and green energy applications. The C8051F96x family has been designed from the ground up to seamlessly interoperate with Silicon Labs' EZRadioPRO® sub-GHz transceivers.
The C8051F96x implements the following three primary strategies to address each area of the power budget:
  • Reduce active mode time
  • Reduce sleep mode power
  • Improve efficiency of moving energy from the battery to the system
