Atmel Takes Industry's Leading Position in 6-pin Microcontrollers

San Jose, California (ots/PRNewswire)

- More Than Six Times the Performance of any Similar Sized
Microcontroller in the Market
Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced today its new
picoPower(TM) AVR(R) ATtiny10, with 1K bytes of programmable Flash
memory, and 32 bytes of internal SRAM. With up to 12 MIPS of
processing throughput, 8-bit A/D converter, analog comparator, and a
16-bit timer with PWM, this 6-pin device is a perfect single-chip
solution for size and cost constrained high volume consumer
Using the superior AVR CPU the ATtiny10 provides six times the
performance of any other similar sized microcontroller in the market.
This processing efficiency significantly reduces the time in active
mode and increases the time spent in power saving sleep modes,
combined with Atmel's picoPower technology this ensures industry
leading power consumption numbers.
"When you see the 2x3 mm SOT-23 package you get surprised by the
high performance inside a small device. It houses an analog
comparator, four A/D converter channels, a 16-bit timer counter that
can run two phase and frequency correct PWM outputs, and last but not
least a very powerful CPU," said Jukka Eskelinen, Director, tinyAVR
Product Marketing. "If your application needs more processing power,
lower current consumption, or if you just want a change the ATtiny10
is your solution."
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 website.
Availability and Pricing
Samples of the ATtiny10 are available now. Volume price for 10k
units is USD $0.35.
