Microchip Microcontrollers

With their heritage in embedded microcontrollers, and having taken over the Atmel portfolio of devices in 2016, Microchip offers a broad range of 32-bit products suitable for almost every industry sector. Their family of Cortex®-M products cover the needs of less demanding applications through their Baseline Family, deliver more performance and functionality in their Mid-Range Family, with the High Performance Family rounding off the needs of the most demanding applications, especially in automotive.

Automotive Needs – Covered

Regardless of whether you need a smart touch interface for a vehicle’s comfort application, or are looking for a powerful solution for multimedia and CMOS image sensor inputs, Microchip has you covered.

At the lower end, the SAM DA microcontrollers, with their Cortex®-M0+ processing cores and up to 64Kbyte flash and 8Kbyte SRAM, are ideal for implementing capacitive touch human-machine interfaces (HMI), utilizing their hardware Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC), that can be connected to the LIN bus. Further application options are opened up by the one channel Inter-IC sound interface (I2S) and the full-speed USB 2.0 embedded host and device. Featuring the ARM® Coresight™ Micro Trace Buffer (MTB), iSYSTEM hardware and software can deliver simple program trace information and even code coverage during unit testing.

The powerful, Cortex®-M7 based SAM V family of microcontrollers are focused upon in-vehicle infotainment connectivity for audio amplifiers, telematic control units or head units. Connectivity is the focus here, with the SAM V devices featuring Ethernet AVB, MediaLB, TDM/I2S, High-Speed Host and Device USB and CAN-FD interfaces. Debug functionality, like other Cortex-M devices, is provided via the CoreSight Debug Access Port (DAP), with a hardware program trace implemented using the Enhanced Trace Macrocell (ETM). Limited data trace is also possible by leveraging the Instrumentation Trace Macrocell (ITM) together with the Data Watchpoint and Trace (DWT) unit.

Industrial, White Goods, Metering, Consumer – Done

The non-automotive qualified microcontrollers are ideally suited for a wide range of applications, including Motor Control, Industrial Automation, Capacitive Touch Interfaces, Metering and IoT Nodes and Gateways. These devices, including the SAM C, SAM D, SAM L, SAM4x, SAM G, SAM S and SAM E families provide everything from superior low-power performance (35µA/MHz), dual-bank flash memories for successful over-the-air application updates, to hardware-supported floating-point and DSP instruction sets. Naturally iSYSTEM’s development tool hardware and software support the integrated ARM® CoreSight™ debug and trace features so that you can ensure you can deliver your customers safer embedded system products.

PolarFire RISC-V SoC FPGAs

The PolarFire® SoC FPGA family provides deterministic, coherent RISC-V CPU cluster and delivers a combination of low power consumption, thermal efficiency and defense-grade security for smart, connected systems.

iSYSTEM - Enabling Safer Embedded Systems

Regardless of the application or target microcontroller, or if you are using an evaluation board or your own prototype, iSYSTEM has a debugging solution to meet your needs.

Additionally, it is also possible to start with on-chip testing of your application code using testIDEA. As soon as code trace or code coverage becomes an issue, you can upgrade to our range of BlueBox On-Chip Analyzers, as shown in the table below.
