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.
Toshiba America Electronic Component (TAEC) introduced the TMPM370 microcontroller (MCU). Toshiba’s TMPM370 32-bit MCU is ideal for high-efficiency AC motor applications such as washing machines, refrigerators, and air conditioners. The microcontroller combines an 80MHz ARM Cortex(TM)-M3 processing core with a hardware vector engine, providing enough computation capability to drive two independent motors. Engineering samples of the TMPM370 MCU are available now. Mass production of the device is currently scheduled for Q2 2010. The TMPM370 MCU is priced at $4.50 per unit in 10,000 unit quantities.
