Back to News List


Austin, TX ­ Selected from a field of hundreds of candidates, Cygnal Integrated Products C8051F300 mixed-signal Flash MCU has been nominated for EDN Magazinešs 2001 Innovation of the Year award in the 8/16-bit processor category.

The C8051F300 is a full-featured mixed-signal microcontroller in a remarkably small 3mm x 3mm Micro Lead-Frame (MLP) package. This microcontroller boasts an unprecedented feature set for its size, enabling localized data acquisition, processing, communication and control in a tiny footprint. "This award-winning combination of features, performance, and packaging allows design engineers to add new levels of functionality in space constrained applications," said Danny Allred, product marketing manager for Cygnal.

EDN Magazinešs exclusive awards program is dedicated to honoring truly outstanding engineering products in the electronics industry. A panel of EDN technical editors selected the finalists, and winners will be chosen by EDN's readers through an online ballot at http://www.e-insite.net/ednmag/In...Ballot.asp through February 14. Winners will be announced at an awards banquet on March 12 in San Francisco, and then publicly in the special section of the March 21 issue of EDN.
