The 32bit ARM M3 controller from Toshiba Europe will reduce component count


Integrates 32-bit ARM CortexM2 microcontroller with USB, ADC, and configurable serial I/O

The latest 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller from TEE (Toshiba Electronics Europe) will reduce the component count of industrial and consumer applications where high performance, low power, and USB functionality are key design requirements. The TMPM365 integrates the ARM Cortex-M3 core, a USB device controller, a 12-channel ADC, on-chip program and data memory, timers, and configurable serial connectivity options into a BGA pack measuring just 9 x 9 mm. Maximum processor speed is 48 MHz and an integrated clock generator supports clock gearing of 1:1, 1:2, 1:4, and 1:8. Use of the low-power ARM core and high-efficiency Nanoflash memory, and the availability of idle and stop standby modes, all contribute to low power consumption. Compliant with USB 2.0, the single-channel USB device controller offers full-speed 12-Mbps operation and supports eight endpoints. The 12-bit ADC offers high-speed 1-μs conversion and can start up from an internal 16-bit timer or external trigger input. On-board memory comprises 256 kB of nanoflash ROM, 24 kB of SRAM and Boot ROM. A 2-channel DMA controller supports on-chip and external memory and peripheral I/O. The TMPM365 incorporates a single-channel watchdog timer and a 10-channel 16-bit timer. Connectivity options include a general-purpose serial interface that can be configured for UART or synchronous mode operation and a 2-channel serial-bus interface selectable between I2C and synchronous mode. Toshiba's new microcontroller has an input voltage range of 2.7 to 3.6 V when operating with the on-chip regulator or 3.0 to 3.45 V when powered via USB. Rated operating temperature is -40 to 85 °C.
