Dec 05, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Atmel Corporation, a provider of microcontroller and touch technology solutions, has announced the introduction of ATmegaRFR2 AVR family of devices, a next-generation ultra-low power single-chip wireless solution for the 2.4GHz industrial, scientific, medical band, or ISM, applications.
Expanding on Atmel's existing ATmega128RFA1, the new family consists of several devices including the ATmega64RFR2, ATmega128RFR2 and ATmega256RFR2 with new memory derivatives, offering a smaller 64K to a larger 256K device, the company said.
The new family offers 1.8V operation at 16MHz and a temperature range, up to 125 degrees centigrade, for deployments in more demanding environments such as wireless lighting control.
To further simplify and accelerate a wireless design, a Wireless Composer is also available through the Atmel Studio 6 Gallery, the company's new app store featuring a growing selection of extensions and plug-ins. The Wireless Composer provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for RF performance measurements while running the ATmegaRFR2 evaluation kit, the company added.
"New standards continue to flood the wireless market, requiring designers to find solutions with lower power consumption, better RF performance, more memory and security," said Magnus Pedersen, director of wireless solutions, Atmel Corporation.
"Atmel's new ATmegaRFR2 family addresses all these requirements. Our feature-rich, single-chip wireless family enables designers to meet their demanding customer requirements while reducing their overall bill of materials, giving them more design flexibility and board space."
