Toshiba TMPM330FDFG ARM Cortex-M3 Microcontroller

Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC) recently developed the TMPM330FDFG 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 core-based microcontroller. TAEC leveraged the Cortex-M3 core to create a high-performance, low-power general-purpose microcontroller with large Flash memory, real time clock, 10-bit A/D converter, 3-channel SIO/UART and packaged in an LQFP package. The TMPM330FDFG is ideal for use in consumer, industrial, security system, and low power applications. Pricing for the TMPM330FDFG is $6 each in 10K quantities. Samples will be available in December 2008 and mass production is scheduled to begin in March 2009.

The TMPM330FDFG also features a CEC ( Consumer Electronic Control), which is a device control method standardized for HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). With CEC, signal processing is performed in hardware, which simplifies software processing and conserves memory utilization, peripheral functions and CPU resources, freeing those resources for other functions.

With an operating frequency of 40MHz, the TMPM330FDFG achieves the lowest- power consumption in its class, about 15mW, and the fastest programming/erasing speed, approximately two seconds, for its class in the industry. The TPMP330FDFG has an integrated 12-channel A/D converter to enable high-speed conversion of analog data from various sensors in 1.15 microseconds.
