New microcontroller devices for high-speed data processing

15-09-2021 | Toshiba | Semiconductors

Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH offers 20 new microcontroller devices for high-speed data processing of the TXZ+TM family advanced class. These M4G group products are part of the TXZ+ family advanced class and are produced in a 40nm process.

The new products (and others in the family) are ideal for a broad range of applications including office equipment (multi-function printers), AV equipment, IoT, home appliances, building automation and factory automation – or anywhere where high-speed data processing is needed.

The new devices use Arm Cortex-M4 core and include an FPU that runs at speeds of up to 200MHz. They also combine 2048kB of flash memory for code, a further 32kByte of data flash with 100k write cycles endurance and 4kB of user data flash. The new microcontrollers also include multiple interfaces and multiple communication options.

All devices in the group, including those announced today, have improved communication functions integrated as a serial memory interface. Among the standards supported are quad/octal SPI, audio interface (I2S), and UART, FUART, TSPI and I2C. A three-unit DMAC and bus matrix structure notably improve communication throughput when compared to traditional products.

The new devices support various sensing applications due to their high-speed, high-precision 12-bit ADC that allows individual sample-and-hold times to be set for each input channel with up to 24 channels. These devices offer highly effective solutions for AC motor, BLDC with the integration of the company's A-PMD.

Comprehensive documentation, sample software (with examples of actual usage), and driver software for each peripheral are offered for free download. Furthermore, evaluation boards and development environments are offered in cooperation with its global ecosystem partners.
