Microcontrollers (MCU)

Other MCUs

Other TI MCUs integrate a variety of compelling connectivity and communication peripherals to support applications such as IoT gateways.

Control + Automation MCUs bring the power of control, application management and connectivity to industrial applications. This MCU platform features the TM4C MCU platform, which brings together an ARM Cortex-M4F core with compelling connectivity and communication peripherals and the C28x + ARM core, which provides an architecture capable to handling control loops, host management and communication tasks efficiently. Control + Automation MCUs are enabling many end equipments such as HMI, automation and process control, high-end digital power, high-end solar inverters and much more.


Increase connectivity integration without sacrificing security, price, performance or power consumption.


From Ethernet, USB and CAN to basic UARTs, TM4C MCUs offer a variety of solutions for industrial automation, IoT and sensor hubs.
