Atmel Launches Microcontroller Solutions to ‘Make it Easy’ for Engineers at ESC Silicon Valley 2010

SAN JOSE, Calif. , April 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — ESC Silicon Valley 2010 — Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, today announced it will launch several new microcontroller products, solutions and platforms at ESC Silicon Valley 2010 in San Jose, California .

As more consumer, industrial and wireless applications require lower power consumption for portable, battery-operated devices, higher performance and a more integrated solution to save board space, companies are looking to their suppliers to provide a more complete solution. At ESC Silicon Valley 2010, Atmel will be launching several new solutions to address these application and designer demands including:

  • The next-generation of general purpose ARM(R)-based embedded MPUs, including the SAM9M11 and SAM9G46 devices. These solutions are tailored for industrial embedded systems that require secured connectivity and authentication of applications via implementation of hardware encryption and authentication. These new devices are direct derivatives of the recently announced SAM9G45 and the SAM9M10, which was chosen as an Editor's Choice product by Embedded Computing Design in its February 2010 print edition.
  • The Atmel BitCloud(R) Profile Suite, a complete ready-to-use framework for rapid development of ZigBee(R)-certified applications. The suite includes a complete set of fully functional reference implementations of the ZigBee Application Profiles for ZigBee Smart Energy, ZigBee Building Automation and ZigBee Home Automation. Atmel is also introducing the RZ600 evaluation kit, a tool accompanying the BitCloud Profile Suite to enable designers to prototype, develop and deploy ZigBee standards-compliant wireless applications for smart energy, home automation and building automation markets operating in both in the worldwide 2.4GHz and the regional 700/800/900 MHz frequency bands.
  • Synapse's SNAP(R), the industry's first Internet-enabled wireless mesh networking operating system is available to be embedded into the Atmel(R) ATmega128RFA1 single-chip AVR(R) microcontroller with a 2.4GHz RF transceiver, utilizing the 2 Mbps high-speed mode. The combination offers an Internet-enabled wireless mesh network. With SNAP's small footprint, it is a perfect fit for Atmel's easy-to-use low-power RF single-chip design.
