TOKYO--()--Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced the launch of three new microcontrollers “TMPM066FWUG”, “TMPM067FWQG”, and “TMPM068FWXBG” as the latest additions to its ARM® Cortex®-M0 core based “TX00 series”. The new ICs are optimized for use in USB devices. Sample shipments will start in the middle of October this year.

The new devices support various serial interface functions, including USB, SPI[1] and I2C[2] (Fast Mode Plus[3] ), and can function as a sensor hub transferring multiple sensor information to a main controller device or PC. In order to meet market demand for smaller systems, all three devices are housed in small packages: BGA package 5 mm×5 mm with 57-pin external connection pins; QFN package 7 mm×7 mm with 48-pin external connection pins; and QFP package 10 mm×10 mm with 64-pin external connection pins. With the built-in USB device controller, incorporating the ICs as sub-microcontrollers to non-USB devices allows implementation of new USB applications.

■ Key Features

・ARM Cortex-M0 core. Maximum frequency: 24MHz
・Built-in USB device controller
・Small-pin packages:

QFN48-pin (7 mm×7 mm, 0.5 mm pitch)

・Multiple serial interface function: SPI, I2C (Fast-mode Plus), etc.

■ Applications

・Digital equipment
・Industrial controllers
・Office automation equipment
・Sensor hubs
