Microchip Cortex M0+ Evaluation Board With CAN FD Transceiver

Posted by Industry News on

Microchip SAMC21N Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit

Microchip introduced their SAMC21N Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit, a development board for its ARM-based MCUs featuring CAN FD connectivity. The products are equipped with the company’s CAN transceivers qualified for 5 Mbit/s.

The evaluation kit is supported by the Studio integrated development platform. It includes an on-board Embedded Debugger, eliminating the need for external tools to program or debug the ATSAMC21N18A micro-controller. The kit offers additional peripherals to extend the features of the board and ease the development of custom designs. The MCU on-chip two-channel CAN FD module is connected to two CAN FD transceivers supporting bit-rates up to 5 Mbit/s. The CAN FD interface comply with ISO 11898-1:2015, even if the data sheet and handbook reference the Bosch specification (non-ISO CAN FD). 

Additionally, the evaluation board provides a LIN transceiver as well as SPI, I2C, and USB connectivity. There are also four general-purpose I/O lines and a virtual COM port (CDC). Furthermore the Cortex-M0+ MCU has multiple timers, a 12-channel event system, and a 12-channel direct memory access controller.
