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

DARWIN MCUs are built to run any application you can imagine. 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.


This white paper from Artesyn describes why a growing number of defence, military and aerospace programmes have adopted COTS ATCA® technology as the platform for high performance embedded computing. ATCA platforms are ideally suited for bandwidth-hungry, high-performance applications that cannot allow for downtime such as land- or ship-based control systems and compute farms that combine sensor data or have the need to execute massive calculations.
