Integrated security features: Extends rock-solid Intel® security down to the device level to help protect your data from the edge to the datacenter. Key security features include tamper resistance, optional JTAG lockout, CRC-16 and AES-128 routines in ROM, as well as reserved flash space for UID and/or keying materials.

Power-efficient intelligence at the edge: Fine-grained power management features that enable your battery-powered and line-powered sensors to provide secure, intelligent processing at the edge for wired and wireless real-world applications. 

Faster time to market: Simplifies design and reduces bill of materials (BOM) costs by minimizing external components required on the platform. Integrated analog, digital, and serial interfaces make it easier to connect to a wide range of sensors, actuators, and communications devices. 

Broad software support: Development tools and sample applications provide access to internal registers, while integrated debugging capabilities expedite development and characterization of application performance. The Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers plugs into the Eclipse* environment, the Intel® Integrated Development Environment (Intel® IDE) is custom and purpose-built, and command-line utilities provide additional flexibility for developers.
