TMPM3HQFDFG is an Arm ® Cortex ® -M core-based microcontroller in the TXZ™ family’s “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. Thundersoft’s 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— prototyping—with numerous commercially available shields (function boards) and sensors.

Thundersoft’s general-purpose MCU boards will be available on the Taobao website in China and on the Thundersoft’s 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.
