Microchip Technology SAM9X ARM926 Highly Integrated Microprocessors

Microchip Technology SAM9X ARM926 Highly Integrated Microprocessors offer high performance and feature multiple networking and connectivity peripherals. Running at 400 MHz, they deliver a rich set of connectivity peripherals, such as dual Ethernet dual CAN, triple USB ports, and seven UARTS. Additional features include an integrated soft modem, high-speed serial communication, a TFT LCD controller, and LPDDR/DDR2 memory support. A multilayer bus matrix architecture and multiple DMA channels ensure uninterrupted data transfer with minimum processor intervention. Low voltage, low power consumption, and reduced system cost make the Atmel SAM9X ideal for cost-sensitive machine-to-machine applications. The processors are supported by full-featured evaluation kits to enable rapid application development, as well as a worldwide ecosystem of industry-leading suppliers of development tools, operating systems, protocol stacks, and applications. 


  • Extensive Peripherals for Connectivity - Peripheral sets may include dual 10/00 Ethernet, dual CAN, Full-Speed/High-Speed USB 2.0 Device and Host, SD/SDIO/MMC, soft modem, 32-bit timers, USART, SPI, SSC, TWI, 10-bit ADC
  • High-Performance Data Speedway - Microchip SAM9X MPUs integrate a processor clock running at 400MHz and a high data bandwidth architecture based on a 12-layer bus matrix with up to 22 DMA channels. The External Bus Interface supports distributed on- and off-chip memory
  • Next-Generation Memory - LPDDR/DDR2 support ensures supply and cost efficiency; these MPUs feature MLC NAND Flash support with 24-bit error code correction.
  • Low Power - Power consumption is only 300µW/MHz at 400MHz operation and 8µA in backup mode; 3.3V IOs eliminate the need for external level shifters, while 0.8mm ball pitch packages reduce PCB design complexity
