The SAM L11 features picoPower Technology, with less than 25 uA/MHz active current and less than 100 nA sleep current, as well as enhanced Peripheral Touch Control, making it perfect for wearable, wireless and security-focused applications.
Versatile picoPower Technology
Learn how one family of 32-bit microcontrollers can serve your needs in low-power, water-tolerant touch and high-trust applications. The SAM L1x family’s picoPower technology, enhanced Peripheral Touch Controller and robust security technologies are well suited for smart city, industrial automation, smart agriculture, medical and accessory authentication applications.
Connected Home Demos
Time is money – especially in development processes where time to market is a key factor in the decision process. Microchip's turnkey touch solutions are readymade for your touch design. Buttons, sliders, wheels, proximity – all available with selectable interfaces (I2C, SPI, GPIO) from a single input, up to 64 buttons. Even appliance safety class B pre-certified solutions are available for designs where functional safety is a focus.
Voice-to-Text with Bluetooth Low Energy
Mobile phones are everywhere and sometimes you need to be able to see what is being said. Watch how the ATBTLC1000-ZR Bluetooth low energy System in Package (SiP) module, hosted by the SAM D21 MCU, can enable you to view the words you hear on an easy-to-use E-Ink display from Ineltek.
Easy Branding and Ease of Use
Drive profitable brand preference and ease of use for your end customers with the PIC32MZ DA graphics microcontrollers and MPLAB Harmony Graphics Composer tools and libraries. Custom graphics, animation and deep-color pallets will have your embedded design reflecting your company’s professional brand image, driving preference and profit.
Wi-Fi to Bluetooth Low-Energy Gateway
Learn how to securely connect Bluetooth devices like a door lock, ceiling fan or LED bulb to the cloud with the combination of the ATWINC3400 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module and the ATECC608A secure element. The ATWINC3400 is an IoT network controller offering Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy network capabilities within a single module. The ATECC608A secure element integrates Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman (ECDH) security protocol an ultra-secure method to provide key agreement for encryption/decryption, along with Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) sign-verify authentication, ideal for IoT applications.
Secure Authentication to Google Cloud IoT Core with a Secure Element
Learn how to protect the private key used for authentication in a flexible, secure element while easily implementing JSON Web Token-based authentication. This cost-effective solution uses the ATECC608A secure element to provide robust security, even to systems with small microcontrollers (MCUs) such as an Arm Cortex-M0+ based device.
Secure Authentication to AWS IoT Core with a Secure Element
Protect the private key used for the authentication of your AWS IoT connected device by using our flexible secure element (ATECC608A). Enabling robust, mutual authentication with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), this cost-effective solution can be used across a wide range of MPUs and MCUs, including small Arm Cortex-M0+ based MCUs.

Microchip PolarFire FPGAs deliver the industry’s lowest power at mid-range densities with security and reliability. The product family spans from 100K logic elements (LEs) to 500K LEs, features 12.7G transceivers and offers up to 50% lower power than competing mid-range FPGAs. The devices are ideal for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defense and commercial aviation markets, as well as industrial automation and IoT market
eMAG is a family of high-performance ARM server processors designed by Ampere Computing. Ampere's introduction of eMAG to the market concludes and follows on the X-Gene3 design started out by AppliedMicro. eMAG processors targets server workloads capable of taking advantage of a high core count with high throughput. First generation eMAG processors are based on the Skylark microarchitecture, a design that started out by AppliedMicro. Fabricated on TSMC's 16FF+ process, those processors feature up to 32 cores operating at up to 3.3 GHz. DDR4 channels, up to 2666 MT/s with ECC; 1 TiB/socket I/O: 42 PCIe Gen 3 lanes TDP: Up to 125 W Second generation eMAG processors are planned for 2019. Those chips will be based on Ampere's Quicksilver microarchitecture and feature an array of new features and improvements developed also with the new staff that Ampere hired over from Qualcomm's ARM Server team.
SmugMug achieves 40% cost savings by migrating their photo-serving tier to EC2 A1 instances. SmugMug is able to move their software stack (PHP, Nginx, HAProxy) to A1 instances with minimal effort. And getting everything up and running on A1 instances was like any other EC2 instance for SmugMug.
