ULP MCU has integrated power management for processing, control and connectivity
Analog Devices ADuCM4050 Ultra Low Power MCU is an integrated microcontroller system with integrated power management for control, processing, and connectivity. The MCU system is based on the ARM Cortex-M4F processor. The system also has a collection of digital peripherals, embedded SRAM and embedded flash memory, and an analog subsystem that offers reset, clocking, and power management capabilities in addition to an ADC subsystem. The device provides class-leading, ultra-low power active and hibernate modes for IoT applications where security, power consumption, and robustness are key requirements. System power can be optimised with digital sensors and ultra-low power transceivers using SensorStrobe technology in the device.
The MCU provides enhanced security, offering strong IP protection for designers and enhanced protection against malware and misuse. Security features include AES 128/256, SHA 256, block ciphers for code protection, key wrap, and HMAC.
The MCU is perfect for applications where long battery life is crucial, but where performance integrity, security, and the ability to pre-process and filter sensor data to remove artefacts and noise are also demanded. Typical applications cover clinical vital-signs monitoring, smart energy management, and asset health/factory equipment reporting.
