ATSAM3U-EK is an evaluation kit which allows designers quickly evaluate and develop code for applications running on Atmel SAM3U4E microcontrollers. The SAM3U4E is a flash microcontroller based on high performance 32bit ARM Cortex-M3 RISC processor. It operates at a maximum speed of 96MHz and features two 128KB of dual bank flash and 52KB of SRAM. The peripheral set includes a HS USB device and Phy at 480Mbps, HS multimedia card interface for SDIO/SD/MMC, a 16bit external bus interface supporting NAND flash, three USARTs, two TWIs, four SPIs, I2S, four PWM timers, three 16bit timers, RTC and eight 12bit and eight 10bit ADCs. The architecture sustains high speed data transfers, with multi layer bus matrix, multiple SRAM banks, PDC and DMA support parallel tasks. The ATSAM3U-EK board is equipped with a three axis accelerometer MMA7341. Basically, it is an acceleration to analogue voltage converter. Converted data on corresponding directions are read by three SAM3U4E 12bit ADC channels.

ATSAM3U-Ek is a Evaluation Kit used for evaluation and code development for applications running on a SAM3U device. The SAM3U-EK also features extension connectors to allow the users to add new interfaces in case they are not on-board. The SAM3U-EK board is shipped in a protective anti-static package. The Atmel SAM3U is the industry’s first ARM Cortex M3 Flash microcontroller with on-chip high-speed USB Device-and-Transceiver, SDIO/SDCard/MMC and SPI interfaces. This connectivity, together with the SAM3U’s 96 MHz/1.25 DMIPS/MHz operating frequency, makes the SAM3U the unique Cortex M3 device suited to applications with intensive communications requirements, such high-speed gateways in many applications.

Feature & Benefits:
SAM3U4E QFP chip with optional socket footprint
