EFM32™ Giant Gecko (32-bit MCU)

Giant Gecko GG11 Series 1
Silicon Labs' EFM32™ Giant Gecko Series 1 ARM® Cortex®-M4 based 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) provides robust security via a unique cryptographic hardware engine supporting AES, ECC, SHA, and True Random Number Generator (TRNG). New features include an SD/MMC/SDIO controller, Octal/ Quad-SPI memory controller, 10/100 Ethernet MAC, dual CAN bus controller, highly robust capacitive sensing, enhanced alpha blending graphics engine, and LESENSE/PCNT enhancements for smart energy meters. These features, combined with ultra-low current active mode and short wake-up time from energy-saving modes, make EFM32GG11 microcontrollers well suited for any battery-powered application, as well as other systems requiring high performance and low-energy consumption.
