Product Details

The ADSP-218xN series consists of six single chip microcomputers optimized for digital signal processing applications. All series members are pin-compatible and are differentiated solely by the amount of on-chip SRAM. This feature combined with ADSP-21xx code compatibility provide a great deal of flexibility in the design decision. Specifically, the series members are -

The ADSP-218xN series offers the highest performance (80Mhz/MIPS) and lowest power consumption (0.55mW/MIP @ 1.8V) within the ADSP-218x portfolio. All series members are offered in a 100-lead LQFP and 144-Ball MBGA packages.
