Introducing 5 groups of new microcontrollers of TXZ+™ family advanced class that realize low power consumption, support system cost reduction, and motor controls.
TXZ+™ family advanced class consists of five groups of 32-bit microcontrollers. The M4K, M4M, M4G, and M4N groups are based on the Arm Cortex-M4 core, and the M3H group is based on the Arm Cortex-M3 core. All groups offer low power consumption, suitable for a wide variety of applications such as home appliances, industrial devices, office automation and audio visual devices, healthcare devices, etc. The advanced class has a maximum operating frequency of 200MHz, max 2MB flash memory with 100k write cycles endurance and 12-bit analog-to-digital converters with fast conversion times. They are supplemented with applicationｰfocused peripherals such as high-efficiency motor control IP or rich connectivity interfaces.
The M4K group is suitable for high performance motor control applications such as air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, inverter pumps, actuators, power tools, etc. The M4M group, which added CAN to the M4K group functionality, is in demand for industrial equipment such as factory automation, building automation, robots, cobots and automated guided vehicles (AGV). The M4G group targets office automation equipment including multi-function printers, AV devices, etc., which require high-speed data processing and large flash memory capacities. The M4N group is suitable for networking and information management devices, such as printers and other office equipment requiring Ethernet and USB connectivity. The M3H group is excellent for basic processing and motor control applications in home appliances, office equipment, or other consumer devices.
Shipment of engineering samples (ES) will start in the first quarter (January to March) of 2021 and mass production will start in the third quarter (July to September) of 2021.
Associated documentation, evaluation boards, development tools and sample software will be provided in the same time frame.
