    - New Capabilities With High-Resolution AViiVA UM8

    Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced today the launch of the AViiVA(R) UM8 12K line scan camera a high-performing 12K line scan camera. This camera is a new member of the AViiVA line scan camera family dedicated to industrial machine vision applications. The AViiVA UM8 provides more-detailed inspection in a multi-camera system, with 12K pixels of  resolution, eight taps working at 40 MHz, line rates reaching 25K lines  per second and a dynamic range of 64 dB. It specifically meets the demand of  end-users who require inspections in less time.

    The AViiVA UM8 embeds Atmel's own CCD sensor design and process expertise with 12, 288 pixels of 5 um each. Building on the experience of its line scan technology, Atmel has once again released a new Camera Link(R) camera to the market. AViiVA UM8 is a further commitment to innovation. The cubic design integrates the best of Atmel technology to provide: higher sensitivity leading to a superior dynamic range even at an ultra high speed, easy implementation including flat field correction and automated tap balancing. The outstanding design of the housing is very compact and ensures heat-dissipation, better sensor alignment accuracy that minimizes the cost of optics and lighting, which are key features for multi-camera systems. The AViiVA UM8 is the first RoHS compliant camera migration for the complete AViiVA family range.

    "This advanced member of the AViiVA line scan family combines the best of our technology associating higher performance and ease of use," commented Christophe Robinet, Atmel's Camera Marketing Manager. "The qualification tests we performed with our clients confirms it is simply the best sensitivity product on the market, which definitely provides the key solution for the most demanding clients."

    Additional benefits of the optimized size of the cubic design allows simpler camera accessories and significantly reduced multi-camera system costs for customers in flat panel display inspection, PCB inspection and high performance Web inspection applications.

    The AViiVA UM8 is delivered with a Camera Link configuration interface that allows easy implementation of the camera into existing systems. It includes fine gain and offset settings, an output mode of 8 to 12 bits, flat field correction and automated balancing of the eight taps. This camera is compatible with fast and power full frame grabbers currently available. The CommCam GUI concept (graphical user interface) with its plug-and-play system has contributed to the success of AViiVA line scan cameras. It enables automatic identification of the camera range, faster programming, multilingual programming of settings, easy saving process and uploading of firmware for upgrades and customization.

    The AViiVA UM8 production phase will start in June 2006.
