Analog Devices introduced the ADSP-CM40x mixed-signal control processors. The ADSP-CM40x integrates the industry’s only embedded dual 16-bit A/D converter with up to 14 bits of accuracy together with a 240-MHz floating-point ARM Cortex-M4 processor core. The new ADI ADSP-CM40x devices enable engineers to plug their designs directly into an environment for model-based design using MATLAB and Simulink software. This streamlines the workflow from system modeling to controller deployment to verification and certification.
ON Semiconductor announced their Q32M210 family of mixed-signal microcontrollers. The Q32M210 features the ARM Cortex-M3 processor, dual 16-bit ADCs, a highly accurate voltage reference, triple 10-bit DACs and 32-bit core. Samples of the Q32M210 microcontrollers are available now. The MCU is priced at $4.99 per unit (10,000 unit quantities). The Q32M210 is ideal for precision measurement and monitoring applications.
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 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.
Cypress Semiconductor announced the CY8C28xxx PSoC 1 programmable system-on-chip with enhanced analog performance. The programmable analog of the CY8C28xxx device enables more advanced mixed-signal and sensing applications, as well as faster and more robust capacitive touch-sensing interfaces. The CY8C28xxx PSoC 1 devices are now in production. The line is available in multiple configurations, and comes in a 48-pin QFN package, a 44-pin TQFP package, and 20- and 28-pin SSOP packages.
