Toshiba Launches ARM® Cortex®-M3-Based Microcontrollers With Latest 65nm Flash Embedded Logic Process

First products in TXZ family of MCUs target motor control and consumer devices

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 14, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —   Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. ( TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today launched a group of 30 microcontrollers (MCUs) based on the ARM® Cortex®-M3 core, the de facto standard for embedded 32-bit microprocessors. The M3H MCUs are the first product group in the new TXZ™ Family of products, and are Toshiba's first MCUs to be fabricated with an embedded flash memory process based on the 65nm logic process. Target applications include motor control, consumer electronics, office automation equipment, housing and facility equipment, audio-visual equipment, and a wide range of consumer and industrial applications.

Toshiba's new ARM Cortex-based M3H microcontrollers target a broad range of motor control, sensing and consumer applications.

The M3H group incorporates high-performance analog circuits and a wide range of basic functions required to support comprehensive motor control and consumer and industrial device applications. The devices operate at up to 40Mhz, and the line-up includes low-pin-count packages (32 to 100 pins) and small flash memory sizes (32KB to 128KB).

"With the number and breadth of applications for motor control and sensing technology continuing to grow, manufacturers need access to MCUs with proven processing capabilities. Our M3H group gives them a great selection of devices that can be easily designed into their end products," said Deepak Mithani, senior director of the Mixed Signal Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "Toshiba is continuing to expand the line-up of the TXZ Family to meet the needs of the motor control and global sensing market, and aims to launch 500 products by 2020."

Features integrated into the M3H group include a high-precision 12-bit AD converter; an 8-bit DA converter; Toshiba's programmable motor control circuit (PMD) suitable for inverter motor control, including AC motor and BLDC motor control; and versatile general-purpose peripheral circuits including UART, I2C, TSPI, and timers. Incorporating this wide range of circuits allows the devices to simultaneously achieve both low-power characteristics and high-level functionality.

Availability

Samples of the 30 products in the M3H group of MCUs will start shipping in May 2016, and mass production of the first products to be released will start in January 2017.
