This rich mix of features make the SAM4E devices ideal for the industrial automation, home and building control, machine-to-machine communications, automotive aftermarket and energy management applications.

Atmel SAM4E ARM Cortex-M4 processor-based MCUs offer more processing power with a maximum operating frequency of 120MHz, a FPU and an integrated cache providing zero wait state flash access at full speed. The SAM4E includes embedded flash memory up to 1MB, safety and security features, and extensive communication links such as Ethernet IEEE1588 MAC, USB 2.0 device and dual CAN. The high performance and high-system integration of the SAM4E addresses the growing application requirements for high-speed wired and wireless communications.

The advanced analog technology on the device includes two independent 16-bit ADCs offering dual sample and hold capability, offset and gain error correction, programmable-gain amplifier enabling measurement of a wide input signal range with high precision.

"Industrial applications that serve the manufacturing automation market, such as programmable logic controller (PLC), require microcontrollers that deliver higher performance, advanced connectivity and better analog capability," said Ingar Fredriksen, Sr. Director of Microcontroller Products, Atmel Corporation.
