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.
Microchip Technology introduced the PIC12F617 microcontroller. The PIC12F617 MCU features 3.5 kB of self-programmable Flash program memory, a 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), comparator, Pulse-Width Modulator (PWM), and VREF for closed-loop-control applications — all in a miniature 3 mm x 3 mm DFN package. The PIC12F617 microcontroller is available in 8-pin PDIP, SOIC, MSOP and 3 mm x 3 mm DFN packages, starting at $0.56 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.
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.
