The H8S/Tiny series of high-performance 16-bit MCUs for low-cost embedded system designs are suited for use in white goods. Compared with the H8/Tiny series, the new MCUs offer more processing performance, additional on-chip peripheral functions, and advanced tool support. The MCUs incorporate the 16-bit H8S/2000 CPU core, a single-cycle execution CISC architecture that runs complex instructions efficiently. An event link controller allows H8S/Tiny devices to efficiently process interrupt requests and trigger multiple peripheral blocks in sequence without using the CPU, so more CPU cycles become available for application processing. The devices also have a data transfer controller that can carry out data transfer operations with no CPU intervention, and a peripheral I/O mapping controller that allows engineers to customize the arrangement of pin functions.
