Create Next Generation Secure, Sophisticated IoT Devices with the New Pearl and Jade Gecko MCUs
With the new Jade and Pearl Gecko 32-bit MCUs, developers can easily add touch-control interfaces, powerful security capabilities and multiple low-power sensors to IoT devices. The new MCUs are optimized for high performance, low-energy applications and support over-the-air (OTA) updates. The included hardware cryptography technology features an energy-efficient security accelerator, a true random number generator (TRNG) and a security management unit (SMU), enabling secure connectivity for IoT devices without sacrificing battery life. An addition to the conventional memory protection unit, the SMU enables software to set up fine-grained security for peripheral access. The new MCUs offer more flash memory (up to 1024 kB with a dual-bank architecture) and RAM (up to 256 kB) than previous-generation Jade and Pearl Gecko products, making it easier to develop feature-rich embedded applications supporting real-time operating systems such as Micrium OS. The dual-bank memory architecture enables robust in-field update capabilities after product deployment.
