MindMotion: Pioneering the Future of Microcontrollers

Shanghai MindMotion Microelectronics Co., Ltd., established in 2011, has rapidly emerged as a frontrunner in the world of 32-bit general-purpose microcontroller units (MCUs). Renowned for its MM32 series, MindMotion has delivered over 400 million chips globally, underscoring its prominence in the MCU market.


They design and manufacture MCUs based on Cortex M0, M3 and ARM Star MC1 architectures.


The MM32 Series: A Diverse and Dynamic Portfolio

MindMotion's MM32 series is a testament to versatility and innovation. This series is segmented into different lines, each tailored to specific market needs:


  1. MM32F Series: Encompassing value, mainstream, and performance sub-families, the MM32F series is versatile. The value line features Cortex-M0 MCUs with a main clock of up to 96MHz and flash sizes up to 128kB, catering to basic needs. The mainstream line includes Cortex-M0 and M3 derivates, offering enhanced peripherals. The performance line is where power meets capability, boasting integrated Ethernet MAC, dual CAN, and high-speed ADCs, perfect for demanding applications.

  2. MM32G Series: Split into value and performance lines, the MM32G series upgrades from the F series with optimised pinout and increased GPIO. The performance line offers a STAR-MC1 core with FPU and DSP, demonstrating impressive processing capabilities.

  3. MM32L Series: Targeted at low-power applications, the L series MCUs, based on Cortex-M0+ cores, are remarkable for their energy efficiency, achieving minimal power consumption in standby and shut-down modes.

  4. MM32A Series: Designed for automotive applications, these MCUs are AEC-Q100 Grade 1 qualified and offer a blend of ADCs, DACs, and communication interfaces, encapsulating robustness and reliability.

  5. MM32SPIN Series: Dedicated to motor control applications, this series ranges from 16KB to 512KB flash, backed by powerful peripherals and the MindSPIN platform for software support.

  6. MM32W Series: Integrating Cortex-M0 MCUs with a 2.4GHz transceiver for Bluetooth 5.1 communication, the W series is ideal for connected applications.


Advancing Technology with ISO 26262 and Ecosystem Support

In a major advancement, MindMotion achieved ISO 26262 qualification by TÜV Rheinland in 2023, paving the way for the expansion of their automotive product portfolio. This achievement emphasises their commitment to safety and reliability in automotive applications.


Why Choose MindMotion's MM32 Series?

MindMotion's MM32 series stands out for several reasons:


  • Competitive Pricing: Offering high performance at a cost-effective price point
