Description

The MAX32680 microcontroller (MCU) is an advanced system-on-chip (SoC), featuring an Arm® Cortex®-M4F CPU for efficient computation of complex functions and algorithms that is qualified to operate at a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The SoC integrates power regulation and management with a single-inductor multiple-output (SIMO) buck regulator system. Onboard is the latest generation Bluetooth® 5.2 Low Energy (LE) radio, supporting LE Audio, angle of arrival (AoA), and angle of departure (AoD) for direction finding, long-range (coded) modes, and high-throughput modes.

The device offers large onboard memory with 512KB flash and 128KB SRAM, with optional error correction coding (ECC) on one 32KB SRAM bank. This 32KB bank can be optionally retained in BACKUP mode. An 8KB user one-time programmable (OTP) area is available, and 8 bytes are retained, even during power-down.

An analog front-end (AFE) provides two 12-channel delta-sigma (Δ-Σ) analog-to-digital converters (ADC) with features and specifications optimized for precision sensor measurement. Each Δ-Σ ADC can digitize external analog signals as well as system temperature. An optional programmable gain amplifier (PGA) with gains of 1x to 128x precedes each ADC. ADC outputs can be optionally converted on the fly from integer to single-precision floating-point format. A 12-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) is also included. The device also provides robust security features such as an advanced encryption standard (AES) engine, true random number generator (TRNG), and secure boot.

The device is available in an 88L LGA (10mm x 10mm, 0.4mm pitch) package.
