Meet Your Unique Design Requirements with the Atmel SAM3 Family
The Atmel® SAM3 family of ARM® Cortex™-M3 Flash-based microcontrollers (MCU) is expanding with 40 new devices in the mix that provide more memory options and more connectivity. With this high-performance, highly integrated and power-efficient portfolio, you’ll find just the right devices to meet your unique design requirements.
Get a broader scale of memory densities, greater cost-efficiency and more connectivity. You’ll have:
With more memory densities in the portfolio, you’ll be able to meet the needs of your most cost-sensitive applications, as well as those requiring more memory for code and data storage or multi-tasking operations. Advanced connectivity capabilities are ideal for data concentrators, gateways and programmable logic controllers. You'll also experience safe in-system firmware upgrades and enhanced protection of external memories.
Look to the expanded SAM3 portfolio for devices with the right features and functions for designs in industrial automation, smart grids, medical equipment, building and home control, test and measurement systems, and computer and consumer peripherals. What’s more, SAM3 products provide an easy migration path from Atmel ARM7TDMI® SAM7S devices to Atmel ARM Cortex-M devices.
The SAM3 portfolio natively supports the Atmel QTouch® Library, so you can add buttons, sliders and wheels functionality to your products. The device family also supports the Atmel 802.15.4-based wireless solution.
To accelerate your design process, you’ll have access to a full set of tools, from evaluation kits to debuggers and comprehensive software packages, including the Atmel Studio 6 integrated development environment (IDE). With the free Atmel Studio 6, which supports Cortex-M and Atmel AVR® MCU design, you’ll have access to nearly 1,000 example projects that will eliminate the need to write up to 50% of the low-level source code for your projects.
