Increased battery life based on best-in-class current consumption
At SAE Convergence 2010 in Detroit, Atmel® introduced the ATA5830 and ATA5780, next generation monolithic RF transceiver and RF receiver devices for ISM frequency bands in the ranges of 310 to 318 MHz, 418 to 477 MHz, and 836 to 928MHz. Applications include remote keyless entry (RKE), remote start, passive entry go (PEG), and tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS).
ATA6614 combines LIN SBC and 32k AVR® IC in a single package to reduce cost and board space
July 7 – Atmel Corporation said it has received LIN2.1 certification for its LIN transceiver ATA6662 and LIN System Basis Chip ATA6624. The LIN2.1 physical layer test, which is the basis for LIN certification as defined by the LIN Consortium, was successfully carried out by the LIN-Consortium-certified test house C&S Group, Wolfenbuettel, Germany. Consequently, Atmel’s entire LIN product range fully conforms to the worldwide LIN2.1 standard. LIN2.1 conformance enables design engineers to use Atmel’s LIN products for all available LIN bus systems ranging from LIN 1.3 to LIN 2.0 and LIN 2.1. Designers can re-use existing hardware designs for new LIN 2.1 bus systems without modifications.
