Toshiba designs and manufactures high-quality flash memory-based storage solutions, discrete devices, displays, advanced materials, medical tubes, custom SoCs/ASICs, digital multimedia and imaging products, 32-bit ARM processor-based microcontrollers, 8/16/32-bit CISC microcontrollers, and wireless components that target cell phones, MP3 players, cameras, medical devices, and automotive electronics. Toshiba offers highly integrated, 8-, 16-, and 32-bit CISC microcontrollers with embedded SuperFlash memory and 32- and 64-bit, MIPS-based TX RISC microprocessors.
TX RISC microcontrollers target calculation-intensive applications that require large memory capacity and DSP-like functions, such as consumer digital-camera lenses, digital camcorders, and automotive-air-bag systems. Both the CISC and TX families have peripherals for handheld information consoles, home-security systems, calculators, toys, HVAC (heating/ventilation/air conditioning), instrumentation, digital TV, IP (Internet Protocol) set-top boxes, home-entertainment gateways, white goods, and automotive-body controls.
Toshiba offers the TX03 Series of products based on the ARM Cortex-M3 processing core and the Toshiba TX09 Series of products based on the ARM926EJ-S processor. These products target consumer electronics, advanced audio, industrial control, and factory automation, field oriented motor control and small appliance motor/IGBT control.
A variety of low-cost reference boards, compilers, debuggers, and software drivers that support various operating systems provide support for Toshiba's microcontrollers. Toshiba continues to support its family of 8-bit, low-power microcontrollers with TLCS-870/C1 cores that process one instruction in a single clock cycle, with built-in low-voltage-level detection and power-on-reset capability.
