Microchip Technology SAMDA1 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit (ATSAMDA1-XPRO)

Microchip Technology SAMDA1 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit (ATSAMDA1-XPRO) is a demonstration and development platform for the 32-bit SAM DA1 Microcontroller. The SAM DA1 MCU is based on the Arm® Cortex®-M0+ processor, and ranges from 32- to 64-pins with up to 64KB Flash, 8KB of SRAM and up to 2KB Read-While-Write (RWW) Flash. The SAM DA1 operates at a maximum frequency of 48MHz and reaches 2.46 CoreMark®/MHz. This MCU includes intelligent and flexible peripherals, an Event System for inter-peripheral signaling, and support for capacitive touch button, slider, and wheel user interfaces.

Supported by the Atmel Studio integrated development platform, the Microchip Technology SAMDA1 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit provides easy access to the features of the SAM DA1 MCU and demonsrates how to integrate the device in a custom design. The Xplained Pro Evaluation Kits include an on-board Embedded Debugger, and no external tools are necessary to program or debug the SAM DA1.
