Triad Semiconductor introduced the TSX1001 mixed-signal ARM Cortex-M0 processor. The TSX1001 ARM Cortex-M0 processor features 16-bit ADC, 12-bit DAC, and uncommitted op-amps. Engineering samples of the Triad Semiconductor TSX1001 will be available in May 2010. The TSX1001 will be supported by industry standard embedded software tool flows such as the ARM RealView development suite.
Triad’s TSX1001 is a single-chip, mixed-signal processor for embedded systems developers. The processor can be use to measure sensors and control actuators in products like accelerometers, automatic meter readers, temperature sensors, capacitive touch inputs, touch screens, medical sensors, and other devices requiring analog and processor resources integrated into small spaces using small, low-power batteries.
The TSX1001, implemented on the Mocha-1 platform, provides the performance and low-power 32-bit processing of the ARM Cortex-M0 processor combined with high-precision analog features. Mocha-1 is based on Triad Semiconductor’s silicon-proven via-configurable array (VCA) technology, which allows embedded system designers to customize processor, analog, and digital features with lower power consumption and greater system cost savings than last-generation ASIC solutions.
