Atmel’s SAM E70 Xplained evaluation kit is ideal for evaluating and prototyping with their SMART SAM S70 and SAM E70 ARM Cortex®-M7 core- based microcontrollers and is now available from Farnell element14.

The kit is an evaluation platform providing a full development experience for Atmel’s SAM E70 microcontrollers. The MCU features an ARM Cortex-M7 architecture and integrated floating-point unit, making it well-suited for industrial applications including motor control and lighting, as well as consumer and PC peripheral applications. The XPLD ecosystem consists of the microcontroller evaluation board, and a wide range of extension boards which are integrated with Atmel Studio, Atmel Software Framework (ASF) drivers and demo code, support data streaming, and more. Additionally, the evaluation board supports Arduino shields for further expansion.

Each extension board has standardised connectors and headers, and includes an Atmel CryptoAuthenticationTM ID chip for unique identification upon connection with an Xplained MCU board. This information is used to present associated user guides, application notes, data sheets, and example code through Atmel Studio, thereby simplifying and enhancing the development experience.

All Xplained kits include an on-board Embedded Debugger, and no external tools are necessary to program or debug the target microcontroller.
