Atmel Corporation, a microcontroller (MCU) and touch technologies manufacturer has launched a low power, 8bit MCUs with 1kB Flash memory at Embedded World Conference yesterday.

The new ATtiny102/104 MCUs run up to 12MIPS and integrate features that are previously available in larger MCUs, making them suitable for smaller applications including logic replacement and the latest cost-optimised applications in the consumer, industrial and home automation markets.

The majority of today's 8bit market growth is coming from applications that previously only required discrete components. With many of these new applications requiring simple intelligent functions including timing, motor control or on/off functionality, 8bit MCUs are becoming a useful feature for the personal healthcare, small kitchen appliance and consumer markets.

The ATtiny102/104 8bit AVRs provide all the features to help the growth in these applications with its small, cost-optimised low-pincount package with 1kB of Flash memory. Integrated features include self-programming for firmware upgrades; non-volatile data storage; internal oscillator to provide reliable motor control; high-speed serial communication with USART; operating voltages ranging from 1.8V to 5.5V, 10bit ADC with internal voltage references; and sleep currents at less than 100nA in power down mode with SRAM retention.

Key Features for Atmel's 8bit tinyAVR MCUs

  • 1kB Flash / 32B SRAM
  • 8- and 14-pin packages down to 2mm x 3mm in size
  • Up to 12 MIPS at 12MHz
  • Self-programmable Flash
  • Accurate (±3%) Internal oscillator
  • Multiple calibrated internal voltage references (1.1V, 2.2V, 4.3V)
  • 10Bs Unique ID (serial number)
  • 10 bit ADC and analogue comparator
  • 1.8V to 5.5V voltage range
  • -40°C to +105°C and -40°C to +125°C temperature ranges
