Application Perspectives

1. Vacuum Fluorescent Display Controller/Driver
(H8/3714 Series, H8/3724 Series, and H8/3754 Series)
Hitachi, Ltd. provides the 64-pin package H8/3714 Series and the 80-pin package H8/3724
Series and H8/3754 Series as built-in vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) controller/driver
microcomputers for use with applications incorporating fluorescent display. The H8/3714
Series provides 16 kbytes to 32 kbytes of on-chip ROM, H8/3724 Series provides 24 kbytes to
48 kbytes, and the H8/3754 Series provides 24 kbytes to 32 kbytes.
The VFD controller/driver consists of display RAM, a display control circuit, and 40 V high
breakdown voltage drivers. Vacuum fluorescent display can be driven directly by simply
storing data corresponding to the segments to be driven in display RAM.
These microcomputers provide on-chip five types of timer, a 14-bit PWM, two serial
communication interface channels, and an 8-channel A/D converter as additional peripheral
Furthermore, these microcomputers support low voltage operation (2.7 V) and a rich set of low
power modes including microcomputer operation from a 32 kHz subclock making these
products optimal for applications which require backup operation during power outages or
battery operation.
