Atmel SAM4S Series Scalable Performance and Memory Density, Power Efficiency Based on the powerful ARM® Cortex™-M4 processor, the Atmel® SAM4S series extends the Atmel Cortex-M portfolio to offer: • Increased performance and power efficiency • Higher memory densities up to 2MB of Flash and 160KB of SRAM • And a rich peripheral set for connectivity, system control and analog interfacing. Devices are pin-to-pin and software compatible with current SAM3 Cortex-M3-based MCUs, offering a smooth upwards migration path for performance and memory size. Key Features • Improved Performance Level — Built around the ARM Cortex-M4 processor, the SAM4S operates at 120MHz and integrates Atmel’s Flash read accelerator and optional cache memory to increase system performance. The SAM4S features a multi-layer bus matrix, multi-channel direct memory access (DMA) and distributed memory to support high data rate communication. • Low Power Consumption — The SAM4S series achieves 200µA/MHz in dynamic mode at a low operating frequency; 30mA at 120MHz; and 1µA at 1.8V in back-up mode with the real-time clock (RTC) running. Offering some of the best power consumption/performance rates on the market for standby mode, the SAM4S series reaches 120MHz operating frequency with a RAM retention mode below 25µA. • Safety and Security — Integrated best-in-class hardware code protection: • Prevents access to on-chip memory to protect your intellectual property (IP). • Supports secure device reconditioning (chip erase) for reprogramming. • A unique 128-bit ID and scrambled external bus interface ensure software confidentiality while the hardware CRC checks memory integrity. • Atmel QTouch Capacitive Touch Support — The SAM4S series is touch-ready, offering native support for Atmel’s market-leading QTouch® technology so you can easily implement buttons, sliders and wheels in your application. • Ease of Use — Accelerate your development cycle with Atmel Studio 6, a seamless, easy-to-use integrated development environment (IDE). Get a jump-start on your design with dedicated evaluation kits and software packages. For rapid evaluation and code development, Atmel and industry-leading third parties provide a full range of development tools, real-time operating system (RTOS), middleware and support services to reduce time to market.
