KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 (Bernama) -- Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (Toshiba) has added eight new products and four types of packages to the M4K Group of the TXZ+ Family Advanced Class 32-bit microcontrollers equipped with Cortex-M4 core with floating point unit (FPU).

According to Toshiba in a statement, the new products expand code flash memory capacity from the 256 kilobyte (KB) maximum of Toshiba’s current product to 512KB or 1 megabyte (MB), depending on the product, and random access memory (RAM) capacity from 24KB to 64KB.

Other features, such as an Arm Cortex-M4 core running up to 160 megahertz (MHz), integrated code flash and 32KB data flash memory with 100,000 programme/erase cycle endurance, have been maintained.

The microcontrollers also offer various interfaces and motor control options, such as advance-programmable motor driver (A-PMD), advanced encoder 32-bit (A-ENC32), advanced vector engine plus (A-VE+) and three units of high-speed, high-resolution 12-bit analog/digital converters.

As a result, the M4K Group products contribute to wider application of Internet of Things (IoT), and bring advanced functionality to alternating current (AC) motors, brushless direct current (DC) motors and inverter controls.

The new products implement the 1MB code flash in two separate 512KB areas. This realises firmware rotation with the memory swap method, allowing instructions to be read from one area while updated code is programmed into the other area in parallel.

Toshiba is planning to increase capacity of flash memory also for M4M Group with controller area network (CAN) interface.
