    • Evaluation Kit for AVR UC3 AT32UC3L064 MCU

    Overview

    The Atmel® AT32UC3L-EK is an evaluation kit and development system for the Atmel AVR® UC3 AT32UC3L064 microcontroller. As an evaluation kit, the board focus is towards Atmel QTouch® and QMatrix support, and picoPower® technology.

    As a development system, the board notably provides on-board memory, a USB communication interface, an accelerometer, and the JTAG programming and debugging interface. The AT32UC3L-EK also features expansion headers; one of these is the wireless expansion header (named WLESS on the PCB), which is the receptacle for one of the two Atmel RZ600 radio boards (not provided in the kit).

    The Atmel® AVR® AT32UC3L064 is a complete system-on-chip microcontroller based on the AVR32 UC RISC processor running at frequencies up to 50MHz. AVR32 UC is a high-performance 32-bit RISC microprocessor core, designed for cost-sensitive embedded applications, with particular emphasis on low power consumption, high code density, and high performance.

    Key Applications: Building Automation (Comfort and Control, Fire and Security), Home Entertainment (Remote Control), Industrial Automation (Sensors), Mobile Electronics (Cameras, Mobile Phones, Portable Audio Players, Portable Game Consoles, Tablets and Notebooks), PC Peripherals (PC Accessories)
