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. 

End-to-end security

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

SimpleLink wired and wireless MCUs can meet your energy budget and system timing requirements with ultra-low power performance for every power constraint (average, peak performance and battery lifetime). Features include:

  • Energy harvesting technologies
  • Advanced power-learning algorithm
  • Low power sensing with autonomous ultra-low-power sensor controller CPU
  • High-precision ultra-low power ADC
  • Integrated power amplifier
