Development background:

Toshiba started its first Cortex™-M3 core-based microcontroller, TMPM330FDFG,
in 2009. Since then, the company has focused on developing product groups that
incorporate specific designs for a variety of applications.

As the functionality and performance of embedded applications has improved,
the need for designs offering memory scalability, rich interface functions and
lower power consumption has grown.

Features:

In addition to standard peripheral IP enhancements, TMPM36BFYFG consumes only
2/3 of the power requirements of equivalent products, the result of a review
of the internal design. The TMPM36BFYFG can contribute to reducing energy
consumption of the entire system through bus architecture optimization. The
new microcontroller is an ideal system controller for home appliances, control
instruments and the sub-systems of computer peripherals, office automation
equipment and automated factory machinery, as it is equipped with a rich
communications interface, a multi-purpose timer for motor control and IGBT
control. Toshiba will expand its line of dedicated products with the new
device.

Applications:

White goods, health-care equipment, computer peripherals, monitors,
communication equipment, printers, point-of-sale terminals, home energy
management system and industrial machinery are just a few of the potential
applications of the TMPM36BFYFG.
