Atmel SAM7

Started by Pablo Bleyer Kocik March 17, 2004

Hello.

Atmel has recently announced their SAM7 line product of smart ARM uCs
(http://www.at91.com/www/phpBB2/viewtopic.php4?t$). Specs are very
similar to the LPC2100 devices... I hope that us customers can benefit from
the competition ;^)

There's also a new companion for the AT91RM9200 based on the 926EJ-S core.

Regards.

Oh, yeah, that SAM7S32 looks like it's aimed right at the people who think
a LPC2104 is too big. :) Nice family of chips--when it ships.

So, the big question is, when am I going to see an ARM core uC in an 8-18 pin
package? You people with your fancy surface mount packages..... Bah! If
god had meant to mount chips on the surface of boards he wouldn't have invented
carbide tipped drill bits. :)

I'm just glad to see ARM cores in more chips. I have to write another couple
hundred K of accumulater arch based assembly, I will fully finish going mad.

Cheers,
David



Manny thanks for the info !

But they are available as samples first in 3Q04, in production 4Q04.
Beside the SAM7A3 the flash / ram size is smaller, but they contain a USB
controller.

Regards,

Martin
