San Jose, California (ots/PRNewswire)
- AT91SAM9R64 Integrates ARM926EJ-S with USB High Speed Device,
64k Byte SRAM configurable as TCM, 10 serial communication channels
Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), announced today its
AT91SAM9R64 ARM9-based microcontroller for high performance
USB-enabled embedded control applications. Designed to boot from the
USB port, SDCard or an external NAND Flash, the SAM9R64 offers the
flexibility to reduce the number of memories for program and bulk
data storage. In addition, the 32-bit microcontroller is optimized
for space constrained applications, or intelligent USB High speed to
SDIO, or SPI connectivity modules by being in a 10X10mm, 0.8mm ball
pitch, BGA package.
High Speed USB. High Speed (480 Mbits/sec) USB is rapidly becoming
the standard for system-to-PC connectivity. The SAM9R64 offers an
upgrade for existing USB Full Speed (12 Mbits/sec) designs to High
Speed USB that does not require any physical change in the connectors
and is already supported by most PCs. The higher bandwidth enables
fast transfer of large data logs and software updates, greatly
improving the efficiencies of system maintenance and service.
Programmable memory bus voltage. In addition to traditional static
memories, the SAM9R64 memory bus interface supports SDRAM and NAND
Flash. Where 3.3V memories are cheaper, 1.8V memories are required
for power sensitive applications. In order to maintain the required
performance level at 1.8V, the I/O pads include a booster that can be
enabled via software.
The SAM9R64 has a 4 KByte Instruction and 4 KByte data cache, 64
KBytes of SRAM, USB High Speed device, 24 DMA channels, an MCI/SDIO
interface, 5 UARTs, SPI, SSC, TWI, 6 Timers, 4 PWMs with high-drive
I/Os, and a battery backup RTC and associated registers.
Development Tools and Operating System Support. Atmel provides the
GNU gcc C compiler, GNU gdb debugger free of charge. Commercial
licenses from IAR (C compiler - Embedded Workbench(TM), Real-time
Operating System (RTOS) - Powerware), Mentor Graphics (RTOS - Nucleus
PLUS), Micrium (RTOS - uCOS/II), ExpressLogic (RTOS - ThreadX(R)) and
Microsoft (OS - .NET Framework) are currently being ported for a
complete embedded application prototyping.
Atmel provides a software package with register descriptions and
device drivers for all peripherals and project examples that ease the
use of the microcontroller. An evaluation board is available for
benchmarking and a quick start in the development.
Availability and Pricing. The AT91SAM9R64 is available now in a
10x10mm, 0.8mm ball pitch, 144-pin BGA package and is priced at
US$5.85 in volumes of 10,000 units.
Atmel is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of
microcontrollers, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory
and radio frequency (RF) components. Leveraging one of the industry's
broadest intellectual property (IP) technology portfolios, Atmel is
able to provide the electronics industry with complete system
solutions focused on consumer, industrial, security, communications,
