Toshiba America Electronic Components’ two 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 core-based microcontroller (MCU) devices are designed for use in automotive electronic control units, the electronic subsystems within a car that control functions such as power steering or the drive motor in hybrid and electric cars. Both the TMPM350FDTFG and TMPM354F10TFG are manufactured in compliance with the upcoming ISO 26262 safety standard. The TMPM350FDTFG incorporates Toshiba’s original programmable motor driver, an excitation signal output circuit for resolvers and A/D converters. The TMPM354F10TFG is primarily designed to control drive motors in electric or hybrid cars. The device incorporates an on-chip resolver digital converter that converts signals from the motor resolver to digital data, yielding a smaller design footprint.
