The older FM synthesis technology involves manipulating digitally controlled oscillators along with time-variant volume and pitch envelopes to artificially approximate recognizable sounds and instruments.
Fast instruction execution enabled by a modern 16-bit RISC CPU, coupled with the ability to start-up from standby in less than 1 microsecond with a digitally controlled oscillator (DCO), results in ultra-low power consumption for battery life of over ten years.
The family's digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) provides a system wake-up with a stable high-speed system clock in less than six microseconds (uS), enabling the applications to remain in battery saving stand-by mode up to 1000 times longer than other competing MCUs.
