SAM4S16C Atmel 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 120Mhz !

Think of the possibility of an Arduino Due derivative with this processor..

 

 

The Atmel® SAM4S16 microcontroller builds on the high-performance, 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4 processor. The SAM4S16 features:

  • Maximum operating speed of 120MHz
  • 1MB of Flash and 128KB of SRAM
  • 1.62V to 3.6V supply
  • Power consumption…

Atmel ATSAM3U4E ARM-ICE Segger J-Link style Debugger

 

I recently got one of these...yeah!!  I will be using this with YAGARTO and MDK-ARM (free 32KB limited edition).

 

The Atmel SAM-ICE debugger is available for all Atmel ARM targets which includes a free GDB Server license.

There is a good tutorial regarding its' use with the YAGARTO tool chain, …

ArmDuino and ArmDuino Pilot Developer Editions in Progress

ArmDuino is an Arduino Due variant offering a smaller form factor along with a few other niceties!

 

ArmDuino Pilot design is under way!!  Harnessing the computational power of Atmels ATSAM3U4E,

along with Arduino 32-bit software.

 

Developer Edition Hardware of ArmDuino Pilot is currently under way!

Block diagrams and hardware descriptions coming soon!

Thanks Michael. I'm an aero guy who has used 2 different commercial autopilots (MicroPilot and Atto) and am interested in the DIY world. The robust hardware of this project attracted me. I am getting more interested in controls all the time and have an aerodynamics background with a lot of experience writing code (mostly in Matlab). Hoping to find the time in the near future to become adept at microprocessors and sensor integration.
