Atmel gives ARM Cortex-M4 device 2Mbyte flash

Atmel is sampling its first 2Mbyte embedded flash Cortex-M4 processor-based microcontroller. The SAM4SD32 runs at 120MHz operating frequency and features cache memory for accelerated code execution out of flash. "We are continuing to expand our ARM portfolio of devices for higher performance applications and growing memory requirements in the consumer and industrial segments," said Ingar Fredriksen, senior director of microcontrollers, Atmel. The SAM4SD32 is used in industrial and consumer applications. Such applications include wireless thermostats, GPS sport watches, smart meters and 1D bar code readers. Wired and wireless communication stacks, multi-language and multi-applications support, and data logging requirements are driving the need for higher memory densities in these applications. The Cortex-M4 processor-based device integrates code protection features, 160kbyt...
