Toshiba America Electronic Components (TAEC) introduced the TMPM380 32-bit microcontroller (MCU). The TMPM380 MCU is ideal for cookers, pumps, compressors, motors or any system controlled by inverters or discrete power devices. Engineering samples of the TMPM380 microcontroller are available now. Mass production is scheduled to begin in Q3 2010. The TMPM380 family pricing starts with the TMPM382FSFG (64K Flash / 8K SRAM) at $1.90 per unit in 10,000 unit quantities.
