Infineon Announces Linux Capable 32-bit Microcontroller; Expands TriCore Processor Family with Chip for Industrial and Communications Applications

Munich, Nuremberg, Germany – February 18, 2004 – Today at the Embedded World Show 2004 in Nuremberg, Germany, Infineon Technologies (FSE/NYSE: IFX) introduced the TC1130 microcontroller (MCU). Available now, the new 32-bit chip is the first high-volume TriCore derivative capable of running the full-featured Linux operating system for industrial and communications applications.

The TC1130 is designed for use in programmable logic control (PLC) systems, high-performance motor drive systems, industrial communications devices, such as switches, hubs and routers, and consumer applications, such as setop boxes. Based on the award-winning TriCore™ Unified Processor architecture, the TC1130 extends Infineon's well-accepted 32-bit MCU family by offering an on-chip Memory Management Unit (MMU) and Floating Point Unit (FPU), well-targeted on-chip peripherals, and a clock rate up to 150 MHz. At 200 MIPS (millions of instructions per second) the average performance of the TC1130 exceeds other currently available industrial MCUs by a factor of three. ....
