5V, ARM Cortex-M4F-based MCUs target consumer & industrial motor control

January 29, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Toshiba’s TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG enable dual control of two brushless DC motors; they are based around the ARM Cortex-M4F core and are in the TX04 series.

TMPM475FDFG integrates a CAN (Controller Area Network) controller for use in factory automation systems. The processor core in both parts can operate at a clock speed of up to 120 MHz. 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 14 x 14mm LQFP100 package both the TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG have an operating voltage ranging from 4.5 to 5V.
