gbaf1news

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (Toshiba) has today started to supply TMPM3HQFDFG microcontroller for use in general-purpose MCU boards manufactured by Thundersoft, a Chinese platform technology provider that designs, manufactures and develops circuits and platforms for devices, including smart devices.

TMPM3HQFDFG is an Arm Cortex-M core-based microcontroller in the TXZ„¢ familys M3H group developed for consumer and industrial equipment.

In recent years, methods for rapid system prototyping have advanced by combining microcontroller boards with commercially available function boards. Thundersofts general-purpose MCU board integrating TXZ„¢ family microcontrollers is compatible with the Arm Mbed„¢ OS. Customers can start development immediately after the introduction of the MCU board, using an on-line compiler and other development environments provided free of charge by Arm.

The board is also equipped with Arduino compatible connectors and SeeedGrove connectors, both widely used in the industry, and it allows rapid system development prototypingwith numerous commercially available shields (function boards) and sensors.

Thundersofts general-purpose MCU boards will be available on the Taobao website in China and on the Thundersofts corporate website in other regions from this month.

Toshiba will support a wide range of customers in speeding up time to market for products and expand its semiconductor business by reflecting the needs of customers to its product development.
