Maxim Integrated released the MAX32670, a low-power Arm®Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with a floating-point unit.

Maxim Integrated released the MAX32670, a low-power Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with a floating-point unit. The purpose of the MCU is to reduce power consumption and size while increasing the reliability of IoT applications. It supports embedded memory for both flash and SRAM.

The MAX32670 has 40µW/MHz of active power consumption, allowing it to execute commands from flash at 40% lower power than other competitive industrial solutions, according to the company.

“Bit flipping becomes a critical reliability concern as microcontrollers scale down to 40nm and below,” said executive director, micros, security and software business unit at Maxim Integrated Kris Ardis, in a press release. “The MAX32670 is designed with a high degree of protection against these events so our customers have the reliability they can trust as they ready new systems in long lifetime and mission-critical applications.”

Further, it has secure boot and crypto hardware for enhanced reliability.
