ARM launched the ARM Cortex-M7 yesterday. Are they any Atmel insiders on here that can comment on when/if Atmel plans to make MCUs using the new M7 core?

I notice he said:

We see the ARM Cortex-M7 addressing high-growth markets like IoT and wearables

Judging by Atmel's twitter feed "IoT and wearables" appear to the be the be all and end all of everything! So that would seem to confirm Atmel's imminent immersion into the M7 market!

 

I sort of wonder myself. If you have got to the stage of requiring the computing power of an M7 (double M4) why wouldn't you be designing around the A5 and then you could run a real OS!

I read that Atmel was one of the first companies to license the M7 CPU from ARM so definitely Atmel should be one of the first companies to offer M7s. I think I read this on tomshardware.com .

Ok,

from now on, I want to ask my questions to Shahin Sharifzadeh and Reza Kazerounian!

both are Iranian.

I wish that I could be like them.

ISTR it took them several months just to get a datasheet out for the SAM R21 (Cortex M0+) - hope they can do better this time...

 

ST seem to be the first with product: http://www.st.com/stm32f7-pr

 

 

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

The Wikipedia article on M7 listed Atmel as one of the first licensees.

The following microcontrollers are based on the Cortex-M7 core:

 

 

ST is supposedly sampling one model, and will be demonstrating this week at an ARM gala.
