Toshiba Announces Two New ARM® Cortex®-M4F Based Microcontrollers For Use In Both Home And Industrial Appliances
TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG enable dual control of two brushless DC motors
Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced two new products to join their range of ARM® Cortex®-M4F based TX04 series microcontrollers. Both the TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG are capable of operating two brushless DC motors simultaneously.
The new microcontrollers aim to satisfy ever-increasing demand for more energy efficient motors and incorporate vectoring technology to ensure highly efficient motor control. The TMPM475FDFG further integrates a CAN (Controller Area Network) controller which is required for use in specialist factory automation systems. Both chips are ideal for a wide range of uses ranging from industrial applications to use in home appliances, such as washing machines, fridges and air-conditioning units.
The TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG are based upon the high-performance ARM® Cortex®-M4F and can operate at up to 120MHz. They incorporate two modules, each containing a programmable motor drive, 12-bit AD converter and vector engine, ensuring the efficient and simultaneous operation of two brushless DC motors from a single chip.
Housed in a compact 14mm x 14mm LQFP100 package both the TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG offer an operating voltage ranging from 4.5 to 5.5V.
