DS4830A Optical Microcontroller User’s Guide

By: Sanjay Jaroli

Abstract: This user's guide provides detailed information on core features, operation, and programming for the DS4830A microcontroller. This user's guide must be used in conjunction with the DS4830A IC data sheet. The DS4830A is a low-power, 16-bit microcontroller with a unique peripheral set supporting optical applications that require high-resolution conversion of many analog signals and digital signal processing (DSP) of those signals, high-speed data communication to an external host, and ultra-low power dissipation. A wide variety of optical transceiver controller applications is supported without need of external circuitry, thereby minimizing cost and PCB area.
