TI's latest scalable Arm Cortex-M0+ MCU portfolio features a wide range of computing, pinout, memory, and integrated analog options.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) is expanding its broad analog and embedded processing semiconductor portfolio by introducing a scalable Arm Cortex-M0+ microcontroller (MCU) portfolio that features a wide range of computing, pinout, memory, and integrated analog options.
With an initial launch of dozens of MCUs supported by intuitive software and design tools, the MSPM0 MCU portfolio allows designers to spend more time innovating and less time evaluating and coding – cutting design time from months to days.
“TI is building the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of Arm Cortex-M0+ based MCUs – expanding an already extensive semiconductor offering with options for general-purpose designs,” said Vinay Agarwal, vice president, MSP Microcontrollers, Texas Instruments. “Our new MCUs provide the flexibility our customers need to enhance the sensing and control capabilities of their systems while cutting cost, complexity and design time.”
Designers can select from a wide range of computing options from 32MHz to 80MHz with math acceleration and multiple configurations of integrated analog signal-chain components, including the industry’s first zero-drift operational amplifier on an MCU and precision 12-bit, 4-MSPS analog-to-digital converters. This flexibility helps designers meet their current design’s requirements and plan for future designs – all within the same MCU portfolio.
With more than 100 planned MCUs this year, TI is building the MSPM0 portfolio into the industry’s most comprehensive offering of Arm Cortex-M0+ MCUs.
The MSPM0 MCUs can help save months of design time with software, design support resources and coding tools—including graphical tools that streamline device configuration—all created to help designers code once and then scale across future MSPM0-based designs.
Designers can enhance system performance and memory utilization with the MSPM0 software development kit (SDK). This SDK provides a cohesive experience that includes a wide variety of drivers, libraries, over 200 easy-to-use code examples and subsystem reference designs.
This new MCU portfolio builds on TI’s commitment of providing designers with cost-effective and easy-to-use embedded processors to meet any design challenge. TI embedded processors help designers connect and control systems in an intelligent, reliable and secure way while also reducing cost and complexity.
In addition to a vast software, tool and training ecosystem, all analog and embedded processing parts are supported by TI’s internal manufacturing investments to help meet customer demand for decades to come.
