Atmel Corp. has rolled out its next-generation automotive-qualified ARM Cortex-M0+-based MCUs with an integrated peripheral touch controller (PTC) for capacitive touch applications. According to the company, the SAM DA1 is the first series in this Atmel |SMART MCU automotive-qualified product family, operating at a maximum frequency of 48MHz and reaching a 2.14Coremark/MHz.

Atmel's SAM DA1 series is intended for capacitive touch button, slider, wheel or proximity sensing applications and offers high analogue performance for greater front-end flexibility. The devices are available down to a very compact QFN 5mm x 5mm package with wettable flanks for automated optical inspection.

Eliminating external components and offering more robust features, devices in the SAM DA1 series come with 32 to 64 pins, up to 64KB of Flash, 8KB of SRAM and 2KB read-while-write Flash and are qualified according to the AEC Q-100 Grade 2 (-40°C to 105°C).

To accelerate the design development, the ATSAMDA1-XPRO development kit is available to support the devices. The SAM DA1 series is also supported by Atmel Studio, Atmel Software Framework and debuggers.

Atmel is now working on the SAM DA1 series with lead customers. General sampling will start the end of April 2015.
