Industrial MCUs offer robust combination of security, high performance and peripherals

The XMC7000 MCUs from Infineon, with multi-core architecture, provide a rich set of communications interfaces and analog functions. System operation is supported by robust hardware security capabilities.

Infineon provides an ideal option for developers of high-end industrial applications who require a robust, low-power and high-performance 32-bit microcontroller backed by a comprehensive set of system software and development tools.  

 

The new XMC7000 MCU family includes versions with either a single or dual Arm® Cortex®-M7 core, supported by a 100 MHz Cortex-M0+ processor. The new XMC™ MCUs feature up to 8 Mbytes of Flash memory and 1 Mbyte of on-chip SRAM.  

 

A rich set of peripherals includes a CAN FD interface and 16- and 32-bit timer/counter PWMs in both the XMC7100 and XMC7200. The XMC7200 devices also have a Gigabit Ethernet communications interface. Alongside the advanced peripheral set, the XMC7000 family also offers robust security features. These include a hardware cryptography engine.  

 

The MCUs are able to operate in harsh environments across a temperature range of -40°C to 125°C. Power-saving modes, which bring operating current as low as 8 μA, make these MCUs ideal for power-constrained applications.  

 

ModusToolbox™ software 

Built on Infineon’s low-power 40 nm process technology, the XMC7000 MCUs are compatible with the latest Infineon ModusToolbox™ 3.1 development platform. This platform provides a common development experience across Infineon products, including PSoC™ MCUs, AIROC™ Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® networking modules, and EZ-PD™ PMG1 MCUs. The ModusToolbox tools package includes: 

 

  • Desktop programs that enable the developer to create new embedded applications, manage software components, and configure device peripherals and middleware. 
  • Embedded development tools for compiling, programming, and debugging the application 
  • Extensive collection of GitHub-hosted repositories of code examples, board support packages, middleware, and application support
