Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the new SMART SAM E70 flash-based microcontroller from Atmel Corporation. This new high-performance Atmel microcontroller is based on a 32-bit ARM® Cortex® M7 core running at up to 300MHz with an integrated Floating Point Unit (FPU). The device allows designers to increase performance and deliver SRAM and system functionality, while retaining the ease-of-use of the Cortex-M processor family for Internet of Things (IoT) or Smart Energy gateways, industrial automation, and building control applications.
The new Atmel SMART SAM E70 microcontroller, available from Mouser Electronics, offers an ideal mix of connectivity, memory, and performance. The microcontroller has up to 2048 KBytes of flash and 384 KByes of configurable SRAM, and offers up to 114 programmable input/output pins as well as an ultra-low-power Real-Time Clock (RTC) and 32-bit ultra-low-power Real-time Timer (RTT). Twelve general-purpose 16-bit timers are available, each of which offer stepper motor and quadrature decoder (QDEC) logic support. The SAM E70 allows for efficient sampling and generation of external analog signals using dual 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) with analog front end offering offset and gain error correction, a 12-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with differential and oversampling modes, and an analog comparator.
The SAM E70 device features multiple networking and connectivity peripherals, including CAN-FD interface and one 10/100Mbps Ethernet MAC with specific hardware support for Audio Video Bridging (AVB). Additional communication interfaces include a High Speed USB Host and Device, a High Speed SDCard/SDIO/MMC interface, USARTs, SPIs, and multiple Two Wire Interface (TWI) buses.
Mouser is also stocking the Atmel SMART ATSAMV71-XULT Xplained Ultra Evaluation Kit, a simple hardware platform for fast evaluation and development of the SAM E70 microcontroller. The kit is based on an ATSAMV71Q21 microcontroller with 2 MBytes of QSPI flash. An on-board embedded debugger eliminates the need for any external tools for device programing or debugging.
