AAC’s Digital Datasheet video series introduces the specs and applications of components—both new and familiar—straight from their datasheets.

Microchip SAM E54 Xplained Pro

Microchip’s SAME54 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit enables the development of low-power and secure connected designs for industrial and automotive applications.

The kit is based on the ATSAME54P20A, which features:

  • An Arm® Cortex®-M4 processor with FPU running at up to 120MHz.
  • An Ethernet MAC.
  • two CAN-FD interfaces with extensive sleep modes and class-leading active power performance.

In addition to the Microcontroller (MCU), the board includes:

  • A 256Mb QSPI flash, a CryptoAuthentication™ device.
  • A CAN Transceiver. 
  • An SD card slot.

The MCU’s Ethernet MAC is supported by a Microchip PHY, an RJ45 connector with built-in magnetics, and a serial EEPROM with a unique, pre-programmed 48-bit MAC address.

The kit also includes current measurement circuitry that measures the power consumption of the MCU, peripherals, or both as well as an onboard embedded debugger that includes a virtual COM port, and Data Gateway Interface. For more information, visit Microchip.com.
