ICs compliant with Bluetooth Ver. 5.0

Two new additions have been added to Toshiba Electronics Europe’s portfolio of ICs.

Toshiba Electronics says its TC35680FSG and TC35681FSG are compliant with the new features 2M PHY and Coded PHY (500kbps and 125kbps) added to the Bluetooth Ver. 5.0 standard and support all of the required data rates.

Receiver sensitivity is said to be 105dBm at 125kbps and the built-in power amplifier in the transmission block delivers up to +8dBm transmission power.

Based on an ARM Cortex -M0 processor, the new ICs incorporate a 256kB Mask ROM that should support the Bluetooth baseband process and 144kB of RAM for processing Bluetooth application programs and data. Toshiba Electronics also says that both will support the HCI and GATT profiles, including server and client functions.

Also included are 18-port GPIOs interfaces, which can be set to 2-channels each for SPI, I2C, and UART.

The TC35680FSG incorporates 128kB of Flash ROM to use for storing user programs and associated data.

The TC35681FSG is designed to be used alongside an external non-volatile memory or host processor, as it has no built-in Flash ROM.
