TI releases a new Arm Cortex-M0+ MCU portfolio aimed at affordability. The industry-low pricing of this new 32-bit general-purpose microcontroller (MCU) portfolio from Texas Instruments starts at $0.39.
The initial launch, in March 2023, saw dozens of MCUs supported by intuitive software. There were also design tools allowing developers more time innovating and less time evaluating and coding when using the MSPM0 MCU portfolio.
The overall effect of the new designs for this family of MCU is substantially cutting design time, down from months.
Designers can choose from a range of computing options from 32MHz, up to and including 80MHz with math acceleration and multiple configurations of integrated analog signal-chain components. This includes the industry’s first zero-drift operational amplifier on an MCU and precision 12-bit, 4-MSPS analog-to-digital converters.
That flexibility helps designers meet current requirements and plan for future designs. All in one microcontroller portfolio.
In this family of Arm Cortex-M0+ MCUs Texas Instruments has planned over 100 MCUs for this year alone. The company is working towards being the most comprehensive source for affordable, general-purpose 32-bit microcontrollers.
“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.”
