Floating-point MCU operates at up to 210 °C
Texas Instruments has launched a floating-point microcontroller (MCU) for operation under extreme temperature conditions from -55 °C to 210 °C, which it says is an industry first and exceeds the traditional 150 °C limit for high-temperature semiconductors devices.   The SM320F28335-HT Delfino 32-bit MCU is targeted at high-reliability, high-performance, real-time measurement and control applications in harsh or hot environments, such as well drilling, commercial jet engines, motor control, military applications, and medical instruments and surgical tools requiring sterilization.   The MCU features an integrated 32-bit floating-point unit with 100 MHz CPU speed to provide six times higher performance for real-time measurement and control than existing high-temperature solutions. Other features include 512 KB of embedded flash memory and 68 KB internal RAM, integrated control-oriented peripherals for high precision, six high-resolution PWM outputs at 15...
