    • Multiple SRAM blocks with separate bus access.
    • 64 kB ROM containing boot code and on-chip software drivers.
    • 64 bit+ 256 bit of One-Time Programmable (OTP) memory for general-purpose use.
  • AES engine for encryption and decryption of the boot image and data with DMA support and programmable via a ROM-based API.
  • Clock generation unit
    • Crystal oscillator with an operating range of 1 MHz to 25 MHz.
    • 12 MHz internal RC oscillator trimmed to 3 % accuracy over temperature and voltage (1.5 % accuracy for Tamb = 0 °C to 85 °C).
