Fast Processor Core
With up to 50 MHz operation and with 70 percent of the instructions executing in less than 1 or 2 clock cycles, the EFM8 MCUs offer an economical solution that satisfies the performance needs of embedded applications. Futhermore, the efficient architecture reduces memory requirements of the application.
Efficient Digital Peripherals
Autonomous digital peripherals reduce the processor overhead. The EFM8 MCUs include high performance timers, higher resolution PWMs and fast serial communication peripherals including 12 Mbps SPI, 3 Mbps UART and 3.4 Mbps I²C.
High Performance Analog
The EFM8 family of MCUs offers high performance analog peripherals such as 12-bit ADCs at 200 Ksps and 10-bit ADCs at 800 Ksps, high noise immune Capsense peripherals and temp sensors that reduce the system cost and simplify designs.
The EFM8 family features high precision oscillators, an integrated on-board voltage regulator, a USB charger detect circuitry and high performance peripherals in packages as small as 3x3 mm to reduce the PCB area and BOM cost.
No Performance Compromise
The EFM8 MCUs provide no-compromise peripherals that are fully characterized with guaranteed performance over temperature and voltage.
Ultra Low Power
EFM8 extends battery life with ultra-low sleep currents down to 50 nA with Brown out detection, fast wake-up times with less than 2 μs, active currents as low as 150 μA/MHz and a low energy USB module.
Digital Crossbar and Analog Multiplexer
Silicon Labs’ patented crossbar technology enables maximum flexibility and unparalleled ease of development, allowing designers to select any peripherals with no conflicts in pin-out or PCB layout.
