TinyAVR MCUs Increase System Throughput While Lowering Power Consumption

By IKTech August 14, 2017

Microchip Technology Inc., a main supplier of microcontroller, blended flag, simple and Flash-IP arrangements, has additionally extended its AVR® microcontroller (MCU) portfolio by adding three new gadgets to the tinyAVR® MCU family. The new ATtiny1617 arrangement of MCUs grow the scope of AVR gadgets that component Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), which help increment framework throughput and keeping in mind that bringing down general power utilization. The new gadgets broaden the memory offering for these cutting edge tinyAVR MCUs with new 16 KB Flash choices, while remaining pin and code perfect with the as of late discharged ATtiny817 arrangement gadgets. Moreover, all individuals from the family are upheld by Atmel START, an online instrument for instinctive graphical design of installed programming ventures.

The new MCUs offer 16 KB Flash, 256 B EEPROM, and 2 KB RAM in 14-, 20-, and 24-stick bundles. The gadgets contain key components of other tinyAVR MCUs including the Event System Controller, which enables peripherals to impart without utilizing the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and empowers fashioners to redo the arrangement of the MCU for their particular application. The on-chip Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC) streamlines the improvement of capacitive touch frameworks. Other coordinated elements include: a 20 MHz inner oscillator, rapid serial correspondence with USART, SPI, and I2C, configurable custom rationale hinders, a 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) with inside voltage references, working voltages running from 1.8 V to 5.5 V, and picoPower® innovation for rest streams as low as 100 nA.

“There is more development and advancement in the AVR MCU portfolio now than anytime in the previous decade,” said Steve Drehobl, VP of Microchip’s 8-bit MCU division. “Microchip is resolved to proceed with the AVR MCU group of items.”

Improvement and support

The new gadgets are completely bolstered by the Atmel Studio 7 Integrated Development Environment (IDE), the STK600 stage and Atmel START, a free online apparatus to design peripherals and programming for simple advancement.


The three new ATtiny MCUs are accessible today to sample and in volume generation.

• ATtiny1617 is accessible in a QFN24 bundle for 10k units.

• The ATtiny1616 is accessible in a QFN20 and SOIC20 bundle for 10k units.

• The ATtiny1614 is accessible in a SOIC14 bundle for 10k units.
