Save system cost and space by leveraging our integrated analog MCUs

We know that you are looking for ways to make your board designs more efficient -- to decrease BOM costs, reduce the number of components and simplify your schematic and layout designs. Adding a microcontroller to handle housekeeping functions in your design could be a great way to do this.

By using a small, low-cost microcontroller for simple housekeeping functions such as driving LEDs, I/O expansion, and more, you can cut down the number of discrete analog components needed in your design.
