Infineon’s XMC4800 MCU
Infineon’s XMC4800 MCUs are designed for transportation, industrial connectivity, control, power conversion, and sensing, and integrate an EtherCAT node, up to 2 MB of on-chip flash with ECC, and an ARM Cortex-M4 core. This eliminates the separate ICs and clocks typically needed for EtherCAT functionality, saving BOM cost and PCB space.
The XMC4800 also offers 6 CAN nodes, a standard Ethernet MAC, USB, and serial interfaces. The MCUs also include multiple ADCs, DACs, demodulators, and position interfaces to simplify sensing and motor control. XMC4800 MCUs are pin- and code-compatible with other devices in Infineon’s XMC4000 family of MCUs, making it easy to switch devices to meet the performance and peripheral needs of different applications.
