Atmel Microcontroller Solutions Ease Engineering Workflow

Products, tools and platforms offer simplified design solutions for demanding applications

NUREMBERG, Germany, March 2 — (PRNewswire) — EMBEDDED WORLD 2010 -- Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, today announced several new microcontroller products, tools and platforms to enable an easier workflow for designers of consumer, industrial, white goods and smart energy applications.

Atmel understands that design engineers have many requirements to meet changing market and customer demands. By offering a variety of microcontroller solutions, Atmel simplifies design flows for our customer's engineers without compromising features and benefits required to bring competitive products quickly to market. These solutions include:

  • A floating point unit (FPU) feature for Atmel's high-performance 32-bit AVR(R) microcontrollers. A FPU enhances the microcontroller's digital signal processing (DSP) performance in applications like audio, video and systems control. This allows a system designer to add more advanced computational algorithms to improve an application's throughput and precision. It can also lower power consumption as fewer clock cycles are needed to complete a calculation. High-performance microcontrollers are an attractive alternative to low- and mid-range DSPs since they offer better integration, non-volatile on-chip memory, better code protection and lower power consumption. Atmel's AVR UC3 microcontrollers are designed for high throughput applications with their dual port SRAM, DMA controller and multi-layer high speed bus architecture. They are also ideal for portable and battery-operated applications with their low-power picoPower(R) technology. Continuing its drive to make a designer's life easier, this latest innovation targets applications in industrial and automotive control.

  • Easy device upgrade path. Atmel's ATtiny4313 products are an extension to Atmel's tinyAVR(R) product family of low-power, high-performance microcontrollers now featuring award-winning picoPower technology. The ATtiny4313 is a new device in the 20-pin tinyAVR family that is code- and pin-compatible with the existing ATtiny2313A enabling a simple, swift upgrade for consumer end products.

  • Easy-to-implement FIPs-certified microcontroller-based security solutions that prevent cloning and counterfeiting for consumer applications at banking- and government-security levels. Atmel's new AT90SO4, the newest member of this MCU product family, offers a wide range of interfaces to bring security in any system ranging from ink and toner cartridges to computer and gaming console accessories, white goods, batteries and chargers, MP3 players, Bluetooth earphones, smart energy and more. Atmel is also launching its VaultIC200, a new turnkey security module to prevent IP stealing. Based on AT90SO secureAVR(R) microcontrollers, it offers multiple interfaces and bundled security firmware. This easy-to-implement new family will secure an operating system to efficiently protect brands and IP (intellectual property).

  • Easy-to-design and complete portfolio of Atmel ARM-based microcontrollers, featuring devices built around the industry-standard 32-bit Cortex-M3 (SAM3), ARM7T (SAM7) and ARM926 (SAM9) cores. Atmel's customers can choose from around 100 products, ranging from 100 nA ultra low-power Flash MCUs up to 400 MHz ARM926 embedded microprocessors that run Linux, WinCE or Android. To ease application development, all these devices share peripherals, architecture, low-level peripheral drivers and more. In addition, Atmel's AT91SAM products are supported by a high-quality, tightly integrated ecosystem, providing access to development tools, operating systems, middleware, protocol stacks, and worldwide technical support and training, thus ensuring faster time-to-market for your applications.
