Atmel XMEGA Resources Page

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.

AVR XMEGA microcontrollers have the same acclaimed characteristics as the established AVR devices, and operates from just 1.6 volt with up to 32 MIPS at 32 MHz. Memory size range from 16 to 384 KB of Flash and they come in 44- to 100-pin packages. The XMEGA devices are general purpose microcontrollers well suited for a variety of applications including audio systems, ZigBee®, power tools, medical , board controllers, networking, metering, optical transceivers, motor control, white goods and any battery powered product.

Ultra Low Power – Atmel's picoPower technology is recognized as market leader in low power. With 2nd generation picoPower, AVR XMEGA further extends battery life. The true 1.6 volt operation means that battery powered applications like mobile phones XMEGA devices can be connected to a 1.8V (+/- 10%) regulated power supply to save cost and battery life.
