XMOS' xCORE - Analog Series (A-Series) is a comprehensive range of 32-bit multicore microcontrollers that combine the low latency and timing determinism of the xCORE™ architecture with the simplicity and ease-of-use of integrated analog peripherals. Software-programmable in an environment that is familiar to any C programmer, A-Series devices allow you to blend control code, DSP, and software-defined interfaces. The integrated analog peripherals provide low-power sleep modes, simplified board design, and precise control of analog inputs.
The integrated 12-bit 1 MSPS analog-to-digital converter offers up to 8 multiplexed input channels. The sampling of the ADC is controlled directly by the xCORE Hardware Response ports, allowing accurate control of the ADC from software. Together with the deterministic execution of the xCORE, this enables the sampling of the ADC to be precisely controlled by application functions.
