AT91SAM (AT91SAM Smart ARM-based Microcontrollers) are a family of Atmel microcontrollers based on the 32-bit RISC microprocessors from ARM [ [ Atmel product website] ] . They include embedded Flash and SRAM memories together with a number of peripherals and standard communications and networking interfaces. This qualifies them as system-on-a-chip devices.

The AT91SAM comes in both ARM7 and ARM9 versions.

External interfaces include USB, CAN, Ethernet, SPI, USART and ADC. A DMA controller provides direct communication channels between external interfaces and memories, increasing data throughput with minimal processor intervention.

Peripherals include counter/timers, power-on reset generators, voltage regulators and advanced interrupt controller. This enhances the real time performance of the processor. A power management controller keeps power consumption to a minimum by powering down unused peripherals and interfaces, and enabling the processor to be put in standby mode.

Hardware Versions


This version of the microcontroller contains 256K of high speed flash. It also boasts of sector lock capabilities and a security bit, and 64K bytes of SRAM [ [ AT91SAMX256 Page] ] .
