MCUs meet demands of power-restricted smart devices

New Products |
Built around the low-power Arm Cortex-M4F for wearable sensors and battery-powered applications, Maxim Integrated's MAX32660 and MAX32652 MCUs provide designers the means to develop advanced applications under restrictive power constraints.

The MAX32660 has enough memory to run some advanced algorithms and manage sensors (256KB flash and 96KB SRAM). They also offer excellent power performance (down to 50 µW/MHz) all in a small 1.6×1.6mm WLP package and at a cost-effective price point.

The MAX32652 features 3MB of flash and 1MB of SRAM integrated on-chip. Running up to 120MHz, the MAX32652 also integrates high-speed peripherals such as high-speed USB 2.0, secure digital (SD) card controller, a thin-film transistor (TFT) display controller, and a complete security engine, making it suitable as the low-power brain for advanced IoT devices.

With the added capability to run from external memories over HyperBus or XcellaBus, the MAX32652 can be designed to do even more tomorrow, providing designers a future-proof memory architecture and anticipating the increasing demands of smart devices.
