Microchip offers Arm-based MCUs (Cortex-M7, Cortex-M4, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M0+, Arm926EJ-S and Arm7TDMI), Arm-based embedded MPUs (Cortex-A5 and Arm926EJ-S), as well as MCUs based on the 8051 instruction set. The device families meet a wide range of performance requirements.
Microchip SMART Arm-based MCUs
Microchip | SMART now offers Flash-based Arm products based on the Arm Cortex-M0+, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M7 architectures, ranging from 8KB to 2MB of Flash, including a rich peripheral and feature mix. The following Microchip SMART MCUs are supported in MDK:
Various labs give an easy introduction to software development for the Microchip SAM devices with Keil MDK.
Arm Cortex-A Device Families
- SAMA5 Series
Based on the Arm Cortex-A5 processor, the Microchip SAMA5 series of embedded microprocessor units (eMPUs) operates at up to 536MHz (850DMIPS) at under 200mW, delivering a high-performance, low-power platform for cost-sensitive industrial and consumer applications.
The SAMA5 Series is supported by the DS-MDK. Our SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra board support page explains how to use this development board with DS-MDK.
8051 Device Families
Microchip offers a broad range of microcontrollers based on the 8051 architecture ranging in code density from 2K bytes to 128K bytes. All 8051-based devices are fully supported by Keil C51 Development Tools.
