    • Xplained Kit for AT32UC3


    The Atmel® UC3-L0 Xplained evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the Atmel AT32UC3L064 microcontroller. The kit offers a range of features that enable the Atmel AVR® UC3 user to get started using AVR UC3 peripherals right away and understand how to integrate the AVR UC3 device in their own design. The UC3-L0 Xplained is suited for evaluation of both UC3L0 and UC3L4 microcontrollers. The two series share the same peripherals, except that the UC3L4 features a USB Full-speed USB Device module while the UC3L0 does not.

    The Atmel AT32UC3L064 MCU's Memory Protection Unit (MPU) and fast, flexible interrupt controller support the latest real-time operating systems. The Secure Access Unit (SAU) with MPU provide enhanced security and integrity. Higher computation capability is achieved using a rich set of DSP instructions. The microcontroller embeds state-of-the-art pico Power technology for ultra-low power consumption.

    A combination of power control techniques brings active current consumption down to 165µA/MHz and leakage down to 9nA while still retaining a bank of backup registers. The device offers a wide range of trade-offs between functionality and power consumption to reach the lowest possible power usage for the application's required feature set.

    Key Applications: Building Automation, Home Appliances, Home Entertainment, Industrial Automation, Mobile Electronics and PC Peripherals.
