Kit Overview


The Atmel AT91SAM7SE-EKAT91SAM7SE-EK evaluation board enables the evaluation of and code development for applications running on an AT91SAM7SE device.Atmel's SAM7SE Series is a member of its Smart ARM Microcontroller family based on the 32-bit ARM7™ RISC processor and high-speed Flash memory:


  • SAM7SE512SAM7SE512 features a 512-Kbyte high-speed Flash and a 32 Kbyte SRAM.
  • SAM7SE256SAM7SE256 features a 256-Kbyte high-speed Flash and a 32 Kbyte SRAM.
  • SAM7SE32SAM7SE32 features a 32-Kbyte high-speed Flash and an 8 Kbyte SRAM.


It also embeds a large set of peripherals, including a USB 2.0 device, an External Bus Interface (EBI), and a complete set of system functions minimizing the number of external components. The EBI incorporates controllers for synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) and Static memories and features specific circuitry facilitating the interface for NAND Flash, SmartMedia and CompactFlash.


The embedded Flash memory can be programmed in-system via the JTAG-ICE interface or via a parallel interface on a production programmer prior to mounting. Built-in lock bits and a security bit protect the firmware from accidental overwrite and preserve its confidentiality. The SAM7SE Series system controller includes a reset controller capable of managing the power-on sequence of the microcontroller and the complete system. Correct device operation can be monitored by a built-in brownout detector and a watchdog running off an integrated RC oscillator.


Key Applications: Building Automation (Comfort and Control, Fire and Security), Home Entertainment (Audio, Remote Control), Industrial Automation (Industrial Communications)
