Atmel's SAM4L microcontrollers (MCUs) redefine the power benchmark for Cortex™-M4 processor-based devices, delivering the lowest power in active mode (down to 90 µA/MHz), as well as sleep mode with full RAM retention (1.5 µA) with the shortest wake-up time (down to 1.5 µs). Embedding Atmel picoPower® technology, the SAM4L family provides highly efficient signal processing, ease of use, and high-speed communication peripherals, ideal for power-sensitive designs in the industrial, healthcare, and consumer application areas.
The ATSAM4L-EK kit lets designers quickly evaluate and develop code for applications running on Atmel SAM4L microcontrollers. The board features an embedded debugger, dedicated circuitry to measure the power consumption of your application, LCD, USB, capacitive touch functionality and more. It also offers expansion headers to plug in Atmel extension boards to easily add gyrometers, accelerometers, Wi-Fi and ZigBee to your SAM4L-EK.
