The Microchip's ARM-based SAM7X256 is a member of the Microchip SAM7X series of microcontrollers based on the 32-bit ARM7TDMI processor. It operates at a maximum speed of 55 MHz and features 256KB of flash memory and 64KB of SRAM. The peripheral set includes USB 2.0 Full Speed device port , Ethernet MAC 10/100 port, CAN 2.0A and 2.0B compliant Controller, two USART, UART, two SPI, SSC, TWI (I2C), three 16-bit timers, RTT and 8x10-bit ADC. Typical core supply is 1.8V, I/Os are supplied at 1.8V or 3.3V and are 5V tolerant. An integrated voltage regulator allows single supply at 3.3V. The SAM7X256 is supplied in 100-lead LQFP and TFBGA packages.
This kit lets designers quickly evaluate and develop code for applications running on an SAM7X microcontroller.
SAM-ICE is a JTAG emulator designed for SAMA5, SAM3, SAM4, SAM7 and SAM9 ARM® core-based MCUs and MPUs, including Thumb mode. It supports download speeds up to 720K Bytes per second and maximum JTAG speeds up to 12 MHZ. It also supports Serial Wire Debug (SWD) and Serial Wire Viewer (SWV) from SAM-ICE hardware V6.
