ATMEL Launching new microcontroller AVR Family : AVR XMEGA

"The new AVR XMEGA™ family from Atmel brings 8/16-bit microcontrollers up to a new level of system performance. Increased focus on system performance is important because more and more 8/16-bit microcontroller families do not meet today’s requirements. Requirements for higher embedded performance combined with reduced cost, size and power consumption mandate new microcontrollers designed especially to combine and offer all these requirements in the best possible way. With AVR XMEGA Atmel is the reference for 8/16-bit microcontrollers."

AVR XMEGA devices include:
  • 2nd generation of picoPower technology
  • Innovative Event System for fast, CPU independent inter-peripheral communication
  • 4-channel DMA Controller boosts MCU performance
  • 100% predictable timing
  • Fast 12-bit ADC and DAC
  • Fast Cryptography support for AES and DES
