Toshiba Launches New ARM Cortex-M3-Core-Based TX03 Series Microcontroller

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it has launched a new ARM Cortex™-M3-core-based TX03 series microcontroller, "TMPM36BF10FG", with 1Mbyte flash ROM and 258Kbytes SRAM. Mass production is scheduled to start in September.

TMPM36BF10FG integrates a large-capacity memory and the range of serial interfaces required for integrating measurement-and-communication systems into one chip. The 258Kbytes of embedded SRAM stores system information and a wide range of measured data, and enables implementation of middleware and a real-time OS. It also supports complex data processing, such as data privacy protection for communication systems.

In addition, TMPM36BF10FG incorporates a multi-purpose timer for controlling power devices, such as motor applications, ensuring it can also be applied to system control (such as motor control), office automation equipment and factory automation.

Through optimization of circuit design, the TMPM36BF10FG consumes 2/3 of the power of equivalent products, even with a large memory size and while supporting a wide variety of IPs.

The microcontroller has pin compatibility with TMPM36BFYFG, which has a smaller memory and which is scheduled to start mass production in November 2013. Either microcontroller can be selected for a system, depending on required memory size, without any re-design of the printed circuit board.


EMS equipment, motor control equipment, communication devices, monitors, printers, POS terminals and general industrial equipment.
