RS Components introduces Microchip MCUs and dev kits for IoT and touch-control applications

RS Components (RS) has announced availability of the SAM L10 and SAM L11 family of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) from Microchip, along with supporting development kits.

This latest family of Microchip MCUs targets a spectrum of potential applications, including the IoT and security-in-home automation or smart agriculture, and ultra-low-power applications such as energy harvesting and other low-power industrial use. The devices are also suitable for capacitive touch control applications such as remote controls, automotive door handles or industrial keypads.

According to RS, the low-power SAM L10 and SAM L11 family comprises the industry’s first Arm Cortex-M23-based MCUs in a small footprint, delivering enhanced performance and smaller code size compared to Arm Cortex M0+-based devices.

The SAM L11 MCUs also provide robust security features including: Arm TrustZone; chip-level tamper detect; crypto-acceleration with AES128 and SHA256 encryption; secure boot and bootloader; and secure key storage.
