The ML61Q400 series of 8bit microcontrollers are capable of operation from 1.1V - the lowest in the industry. Current consumption during clock OFF also is an industry-leading 0.5µA, while a 3-stage pipeline architecture enables performance equivalent to a conventional 16bit microcontroller. In addition, direct connection to the LCD panel is possible, allowing configuration of a low-cost system utilizing only the microcontroller. In short, the world's lowest current consumption (0.5µA during clock OFF, 5µA during 32kHz operation), combined with ultra-low voltage compatibility (from 1.1A), maximize efficiency for longer battery life, even in single-battery systems.
