Meet DARWIN

A New Breed of MCU, Built for the Evolving IoT

Smarter, leaner, tougher. DARWIN is ready for what’s next.

DARWIN MCUs are built to run any application you can imagine—in places where you wouldn’t dream of sending other MCUs. They’re as smart as they are power efficient, combining the biggest embedded memories in their class with Maxim’s wearable-grade power technology. Now you can design smarter IoT products, without running out of code space or battery life. And with the most advanced cybersecurity ever, you’ll be ready for anything you encounter.

An Evolutionary Leap in Ultra-Low-Power Processors

Wearable-grade power technology lets you do more with smaller batteries.
Biggest embedded memories in class enable you to build smarter products.
Massively scalable memory architecture means you’re ready for what’s next.
World’s most advanced embedded security protects your customers and your brand.
