TI makes embedded systems more affordable with the new Arm® Cortex®-M0+ MCU portfolio
Dallas, March 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Texas Instruments (TI) (Nasdaq: TXN) expands its broad portfolio of analog and embedded processing semiconductors with the introduction of a scalable Arm® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller (MCU) portfolio that includes a wide range of compute, Pinout, memory, and onboard analog options.
With an initial introduction of dozens of MCUs supported by intuitive software and design tools, the MSPM0 MCU portfolio allows designers to spend more time innovating and less time evaluating and coding — reducing design time from months to days is shortened.

“TI is building the industry’s broadest portfolio of Arm Cortex-M0+-based MCUs, expanding an already extensive silicon offering with options for general-purpose designs,” said Vinay Agarwal, Vice President, MSP Microcontrollers, Texas Instruments. “Our new MCUs offer our customers the flexibility they need to enhance their systems’ sensing and control capabilities while reducing cost, complexity and development time.”
Find the right processing and built-in analog capabilities for any universal design
Designers can choose from a wide range of computational options from 32MHz to 80MHz with mathematical acceleration and multiple configurations of integrated analog signal chain components, including the industry’s first zero-drift operational amplifier on an MCU and precision 12-bit, 4MSPS analog-to-digital converters. This flexibility helps designers meet the needs of their current design and plan for future designs—all within the same MCU portfolio.
With more than 100 MCUs planned this year, TI is expanding the MSPM0 portfolio to become the industry’s most comprehensive offering of Arm Cortex-M0+ MCUs.
Reduce design time from months to days and be up and running in minutes
MSPM0 MCUs can help save months of design time with software, design support resources, and coding tools – including graphical tools that streamline device configuration – all designed to help designers code once, and then through future MSPM0 -based designs to scale.
Developers can improve system performance and memory utilization with the MSPM0 Software Development Kit (SDK). This SDK provides a cohesive experience that includes a variety of drivers, libraries, over 200 easy-to-use code samples, and subsystem reference designs.
Enabling the future of embedded with scalable processing portfolios
This new MCU portfolio builds on TI’s commitment to providing designers with affordable and easy-to-use embedded processors to solve any design challenge. Embedded processors from TI help designers connect and control systems in intelligent, reliable, and secure ways while reducing cost and complexity.
In addition to a vast software, tools, and training ecosystem, all analog and embedded processing parts are supported by TI’s in-house manufacturing investments to meet customer demand for decades to come.
