Texas Instruments Inc. expands its MCU portfolio with the acquisition of Luminary Micro, a supplier of ARM Cortex-M3-based 32-bit MCUs.

Luminary Micro's Stellaris devices will allow TI to address mainstream 32-bit MCU markets, giving customers access to the general-purpose processing power of the industry-standard ARM Cortex-M3 core and the Stellaris family's advanced communication capabilities, including 10/100 Ethernet MAC+PHY, CAN, USB On-The-Go, USB Host/Device, SSI/SPI, UARTs, I2S, and I2C.

The Stellaris family of MCUs is positioned for cost-conscious applications requiring significant control processing and connectivity capabilities. The recently-announced fourth generation of Stellaris devices, the LM3S9000 Series, breaks new ground in general purpose processing performance and features new combinations of connectivity, memory configurations and advanced motion control.

Jim Reinhart, general manager and former Luminary Micro CEO will lead TI's Catalogue ARM MCU business and roadmap as part of TI's AEC organisation. The Cortex-M3 microcontroller business will continue to operate from its site in Austin, Texas, which will be known as TI AEC Austin.
