Say goodbye to quartz
Introducing the industry’s first crystal-less, wireless MCU which integrates a bulk acoustic wave (BAW) resonator within the package, eliminating the need for an external quartz crystal. This multi-standard MCU will allow you to create simpler, smaller designs while increasing performance and lowering costs. It will also shorten development time by eliminating the process of selecting, calibrating and installing external quartz crystals.
SimpleLink offers comprehensive security features for SoC devices from end-nodes to the cloud with many features including:
- Cryptographic acceleration (AES 128/192/256, DES/3DES, SHA 1/2)
- Networking security (WPA2, TLS)
- Secure firmware & software update (file system security, software tamper protection)
- Secure boot (authenticated boot, standard secure, root-of-trust public key)
- Over-the-air security content delivery
Don’t compromise performance for power
