Triad Semiconductor Mocha-1 ARM Cortex-M0 Configurable Array

Triad Semiconductor announced the Mocha-1 array. According to Triad, the Mocha-1 is the first system-on-chip (SoC) to integrate the ARM Cortex-M0 with the via-configurable analog and digital functions. Triad’s Mocha-1 array enables electronic system designers to customize analog and digital features with lower power consumption and greater system cost savings than last-generation ASIC solutions.

Triad Semiconductor Mocha-1 arrayWhat is the Mocha-1 array?
The Mocha-1 is an ARM Cortex-M0 based, via-configurable array. The Mocha-1 combines the low power, low-cost Cortex-M0 32-bit processor with 75,000 configurable ASIC gates, non-volatile memory, and configurable analog resources to enable the rapid, low-cost development of complete mixed signal System-on-a-Chip (SoC) solutions.

How much does the Mocha-1 array cost?
Price is a function of package and production volume, ranging from US $7.00 to $15.00 per ASIC, with customer-optimized solutions available for under $2.00 in high volume applications. Triad is now accepting customer designs for the Mocha-1 array, with silicon being delivered in Q1.
