Toshiba's M3H MCUs embed flash using 65nm logic process

April 15, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Based on the ARM Cortex-M3 core, Toshiba Electronics Europe's M3H microcontrollers are the company's first MCUs to be fabricated with an embedded flash memory process based on the 65nm logic process.

The first products from Toshiba's new TXZ Family, the 32-bit M3H group incorporates high-performance analogue circuits and the wide range of basic functions required to support comprehensive motor control and consumer and industrial device applications. The line-up includes low-pin-count packages (32 to 100-pin) and small flash memory sizes (32 KB to 128 KB). The devices operate at up to 40MHz. 

Integrated features include a high-precision 12-bit A/D converter with a 1.5us conversion speed and an 8-bit D/A converter. The M3H group also features Toshiba’s programmable motor drive (PMD) that is suitable for inverter motor control, including A/C motor and BLDC motor control; and versatile general-purpose peripheral circuits including UART, I2C, TSPI, and timers. Samples of the 30 products in the M3H group of MCUs will start shipping in May 2016.
