San Jose, California (ots/PRNewswire) -
Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced today two new low
power 32-pin tinyAVR(R) microcontrollers, the ATtiny48 and ATtiny88
devices which have 4- and 8-Kbytes of Flash memory, respectively.
These AVR(R) microcontrollers consume less than 240 uA at 1.8V and 1
MHz, and below 100 nA in power-down mode and are especially suited
for portable and power sensitive systems such as remote control,
accessories and small appliances.
The new tinyAVR microcontrollers utilize Atmel's industry leading
picoPower(TM) technology that eliminates unnecessary power
consumption. They have a zero power brown-out detection circuitry
that can be turned off during sleep modes, a power reduction register
that powers down individual peripherals, and digital input disable
registers that remove leakage current on ADC input pins.
The ATtiny48/88 operates from 1.8 to 5.5 volts and features a
10-bit ADC, SPI, I2C interface, internal temperature sensor, and have
up to 12 MIPS throughput at 12 MHz. Like all the other AVR
microcontrollers, the ATtiny48/88 features an on-chip debug system
for easy, fast, and robust development.
"Atmel's successful picoPower megaAVR(R) devices offer the
best-in-class power saving features and performance. The ATtiny48/88
is now extending the reach, offering an affordable solution for
applications that require very low power consumption and are very
cost sensitive. Our customers in the consumer electronics market want
to develop products that consume less and less power, and the new
ATtiny48/88 are a perfect fit," said Jukka Eskelinen, Director of
tinyAVR Product Marketing.
All tinyAVR microcontrollers use the standard AVR microcontroller
development tools. The AVR Studio(R) AVR integrated development
environment is available free of charge on Atmel's web site.
Availability and Pricing
Samples for the ATtiny48 are available now, the ATtiny88 will be
available in 3Q2008 in the following packages QFN32, QFN28, TQFP32
and PDIP28. Volume prices for 10k units are USD $0.80 for the
ATtiny48 and USD $1.04 for the ATtiny88.
Atmel is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of
microcontrollers, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory
and radio frequency (RF) components. Leveraging one of the industry's
