MDK Components

SAM Cortex-A Microprocessors (MPUs)

  • 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 devices are supported by the DS-MDK. Our SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra board support page explains how to use this development board with DS-MDK.

Arm7/Arm9 Device Families

  • SAM9 Series
    Microchip's Arm9 processor-based high-performance MPUs are an ideal solution for mains powered, cost-sensitive industrial applications and building control.
  • SAM7 Series
    The original Arm7TDMI processor-based general purpose devices from Microchip

MDK-Plus and MDK-Professional editions provide comprehensive support for the Microchip SAM7/SAM9 devices.


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.

Keil C51 Development Tools provide extensive support for Microchip 8051-based MCUs. Please visit the legacy device database for a detailed list of the supported devices.
