Mouser stocks Maxim’s MAX32652 MCU to extend battery life

Offering designers the low-power consumption of an embedded microcontroller (MCU) with the capabilities of a higher-powered applications processor, the MAX32652 is the latest offering from Maxim’s family of Darwin Generation UP microcontrollers. It is now available from distributor, Mouser Electronics.

Maxim’s Darwin Generation UP microcontrollers combine wearable-grade power technology with large embedded memories and advanced embedded security.

The Maxim MAX32652 microcontroller is based on an Arm Cortex-M4 core with a floating point unit (FPU) and supports a future-proof memory architecture that enables designers to grow the capabilities of IoT device applications. The memory-scalable device integrates 3Mbytes of flash, 1Mbyte of SRAM, and a clock running up to 120MHz. Low-power SRAM retention modes help extend battery life, and the low-power active mode features advanced power management capabilities. Additional memory expansion is available through external memory using the device’s 120Mbytes per second HyperBus/XcellaBus DDR interface.

The MAX32652 microcontroller provides a range of high-speed peripherals, including high-speed USB 2.0, an SD card controller, and a TFT display. Additional serial interfaces include dedicated FIFOs that enable communication to external sensors, a four-input, 10-bit analogue to digital converter (ADC) that monitors system power, and an I2S port that supports bi-directional audio streaming. The device also leverages Maxim’s security toolbox to help create secure sensors for IoT applications.

Suitable for fitness monitors, wearable medical patches, portable medical devices, industrial sensors, and other battery-powered IoT devices, the MAX32650 microcontroller is supported by the MAX32650 evaluation kit, also available to order from Mouser. The MAX32650 kit contains a MAX32650 microcontroller with a pre-programmed demo, JTAG debugger with ribbon cable, and two USB cables.
