Anton is part of indie’s line of ARM M0-based products specifically tuned for the Sensing/Medical applications space. It is a highly integrated system on chip (SoC) with an advanced analog front end (AFE) capable of being used in systems with the most advanced chemical analysis requirements for commercial and home medical applications.
Anton contains a high performance 32-bit ARM M0 core with 160kB of flash RAM and 8kB of SRAM. A real time clock (RTC), 12MHz RC oscillator, 32kHz sleep mode clock, 10kHz auxiliary clock, and watchdog timer are all fully integrated on die for high performance, low power design.
The high performance analog front end (AFE) consists of a state of the art 16-Bit sigma-delta ADC and two 14-Bit DACs, which together allow for fast, highly precise chemical measurements with low calibration requirements.
Anton also includes a USB 1.1 serial interface supporting control, bulk, and interrupt transfers so that data can be easily stored or transferred.
Anton includes integrated power management and is capable of running entirely from either a 3V battery or the 5V USB interface. No other components are required for power regulation of the IC, creating an efficient, low cost design.
