San Jose, Calif., USA: Atmel’s new family of AVR microcontrollers—the ATmega16M1, ATmega32M1, and ATmega64M1—target the industrial control market. They were developed to serve the need for highaccuracy pulse width modulation (PWM) for advanced motor-control applications that feature CAN and LIN connectivity.
The new family of devices feature 16, 32, and 64kB of flash, generalpurpose I/O pins, analogue-todigital converter, analogue comparators, power stage controller, and 8 and 16bit timers. Based on the AVR 8bit RISC architecture, the ATmega16M1, ATmega32M1, and ATmega64M1, integrate all of the basic peripherals necessary to satisfy the needs of complex motorcontrol algorithms.
The devices are the first AVR microcontrollers in a 32-pin package that offer CAN and LIN support, according to the company.
