ARM Processor-based Microcontrollers
Each month, we’ll share with you some tips and tricks that we hope will make your design process even smoother or faster. This time around, let’s look at our ARM® processor-based microcontrollers.
Learn about new Atmel SAM4E ARM Cortex™-M4 Flash microcontrollers with advanced connectivity peripherals and floating point unit. These devices are ideal for industrial and automation applications.
Get the schematic checklist for the Atmel SAM4L ultra-low power microcontrollers, based on the ARM Cortex-M4 architecture. Since the SAM4L devices have many pins and functions, the schematic for these devices can be large and complex. This app note provides a common checklist that you can use when starting and reviewing the schematics for a SAM4L design.
Learn about the low-power mode in Atmel SAM3S microcontrollers, based on the ARM Cortex-M3 core. This reference design helps you build a passive infrared motion detector camera using the SAM3S device.
Order a variety of Atmel ARM processor-based devices from our distributors.
Visit the Atmel Gallery apps store, a part of Atmel Studio 6, to find Atmel and third-party extensions for our ARM core devices.
Atmel has announced the newest member of the Atmel maXTouch® S Series of touchscreen controllers. The Atmel mXT540S device, with 540 nodes, delivers high-performance capacitive sensing for touchscreens up to 7” and supports gloved finger operation and passive stylus. In related news, Atmel maXFusionTM Technology, which integrates sensor functionality in the newest maXTouch devices, has been nominated for an EETimes China ACE Award.
Atmel XSense™ touch sensors earned a 2013 CES Innovations Award earlier this month. Sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association, the prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are selected by a panel of independent engineers and members of the trade press. In related news, ASUS® has selected XSense sensors for its next-generation tablet. And, the touch sensors have been nominated for a “Most Promising New Technology of the Year” award by EETimes China.
The Internet of Things
Are you designing web-enabled products for The Internet of Things? Atmel and CelenoTM Wireless Communications, a leading provider of high-performance Wi-Fi chips and software, recently announced they are developing integrated solutions for high-performance Wi-Fi Direct™ remote controls for next-generation set-top box and video gateway platforms. In related news, Atmel has entered into an agreement to acquire Ozmo, Inc., a leading provider of ultra-low power Wi-Fi solutions that will expand our wireless offerings and further support your smart, connected products.
