(H8/3814 Series, H8/3834 Series)
Hitachi, Ltd. provides the H8/3814 Series and the H8/3834 Series (all in 100-pin packages)
as built-in liquid crystal display (LCD) controller/driver microcomputers for use with
applications incorporating liquid crystal displays. The H8/3814 Series provides 16 kbytes to
32 kbytes of on-chip ROM, and the H8/3834 Series provides 32 kbytes to 60 kbytes.
Since the LCD controller/driver provides 40 built-in segment lines and duty ratios of 1/4, 1/3,
1/2, and static, displays of up to 160 segments can be used. Furthermore, displays with up to
512 segments can be driven if an external expansion LCD driver (such as the HD66100) is
As for additional peripheral functions, the H8/3834 Series provides on-chip five types of
timers and three serial communication interface channels. The H8/3814 Series provides on-
chip three types of timers and two serial communication interface channels. These
microcomputers also include a 12-channel A/D converter.
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.
