The Atmel® SAM4L microcontrollers redefine the power benchmark for Cortex™-M4 processor-based devices, delivering the lowest power in active mode (down to 90µA/MHz) as well as sleep mode with full RAM retention (1.5µA) with the shortest wake-up time (down to 1.5µs). Embedding Atmel picoPower® technology, the SAM4L family provides highly efficient signal processing, ease of use and high-speed communication peripherals—ideal for power-sensitive designs in the industrial, healthcare and consumer application areas.

Atmel QTouch Capacitive Touch Support
Includes hardware integrated capacitive touch module based on QTouch® technology for fast development of touch and proximity functionality with ultra low power consumption.
Highly Efficient Signal Processing
Thanks to the Cortex-M4 architecture, the SAM4L microcontrollers feature extended single-cycle multiply-accumulate instructions, optimized SIMD arithmetic and saturating arithmetic instructions for highly efficient signal processing.
Ease of Use
Backed by an ecosystem of design tools, the SAM4L series is easy to use, facilitating faster time to market. Design with the Atmel Studio 6 integrated development environment (IDE), which includes more than 1,500 project examples with source code, simulation tools and a powerful editor.
