Win a Microchip evaluation kit

28 August 2019 News

Dataweek readers are being offered the chance to win a SAM L21 Xplained Pro evaluation kit for evaluating and prototyping with Microchip Technology’s ultra-low-power SAM L21 ARM Cortex-M0+ based microcontrollers (MCU).

The SAM L family of microcontrollers is built with innovative picoPower technology to deliver power consumption down to 25 µA/MHz in active mode, under 100 nA in sleep mode and fast wakeup times of

1,2 µs. These MCUs have achieved an EEMBC-certified ULPMark Score of 410, which is the highest score for an ARM Cortex-M23 or ARM Cortex- M0+ class device.

In addition to ultra-low-power capabilities, these devices feature an enhanced peripheral touch controller, chip-level robust security, ARM TrustZone technology, AES, Full Speed USB host and device, event system and sleepwalking, 12-bit analog, built-in op-amps and much more.

A rich set of peripherals, flexibility and ease-of-use make the SAM L21 series ideal for IoT, wireless, and any system that needs large memories and ultra-low power consumption. The SAM L21 is designed for simple and intuitive migration between SAM L devices with identical peripheral modules, compatible code and a linear address map, and is compatible with the SAM D family of general-purpose MCUs.

For your chance to win a Microchip SAM L21 Xplained Pro evaluation kit, visit http://page.microchip.com/Dataweek-SAM-L21.html and enter your details in the online entry form.
