Microchip today announced two new highly differentiated products, including the 32-bit SAM L10/L11 and dsPIC33CH dual-core Digital Signal Controller (DSC).

Details and high-res images are available at:

The SAM L10/L11 MCU families for low power and high security are based on the Arm® Cortex®-M23 core, with the SAM L11 featuring Arm TrustZone® for Armv8-M, a programmable environment that provides hardware isolation between certified libraries, IP and application code. Additional features include:

  • The SAM L11 features robust security with chip-level tamper resistance, secure boot and secure key storage. When combined with TrustZone technology, this is designed to protect customer applications from both remote and physical attacks. Microchip has also partnered with Trustonic, and Secure Thingz to simplify and enhance security on the SAM L11.
  • Both families offer the industry’s lowest power consumption. When benchmarked for power consumption the SAM L10 received a ULPMark™ score of 405, which is over 200 percent better performance than nearest competitor certified by EEMBC®.
  • Both families also include capacitive touch capability with best-in-class water tolerance and noise immunity.

The dsPIC33CH is a dual-core dsPIC® Digital Signal Controller (DSC) with one core designed to function as a master while the other is designed as a slave. The slave core is useful for executing dedicated, time-critical control code while the master core is busy running the user interface, system monitoring and communications functions, customized for the end application. Additional features include:

  • Simplified firmware development, as the dual independent cores enables multi-team software development and allows seamless integration when they are brought together in one chip.
  • Performance optimized for digital power, motor control and other applications requiring sophisticated algorithms. This includes applications such as wireless power, server power supplies, drones and automotive sensors.
  • Designed for live updating of the system, which is especially important for power supplies where firmware updates must be made with zero downtime.
