Atmel microcontrollers

The Atmel Corporation, founded in 1984, is a world leader in the design, production and distribution of semiconductor products, including advanced logic, nonvolatile memory, mixed signal and RF integrated circuits. Rapid stock an excellent range of Atmel microcontrollers and non-volatile Atmel memory products.

Rapid's portfolio of Atmel microcontrollers include a variety of 8-bit low voltage devices, evaluation boards and programming kits. The AT89S is a powerful microcontroller providing highly flexible and feature-rich solutions for embedded control applications. If you are looking for a code development platform for the AT91SAM7S family of ARM based microcontrollers, why not try the AT91SAM7S-EK evaluation board, which reduces the cost of migration to 32-bit architecture?

Flouting the rules of physiology, Atmel's capacity for memory gets stronger with the passing of time. Atmel's non-volatile memory range from Rapid includes Serial Flash and EEPROM devices supporting two-wire, three-wire and SPI protocols.

Primarily used to store personal preference data and configuration/setup data, Serial EEPROMs are the most flexible type of non-volatile memory. Compared to other NVM solutions, Serial EEPROM devices offer a lower pin count, smaller packages and lower power consumption. The Atmel AT24Cx EEPROM is a two-wire device ideal for applications requiring low power and low voltage operation, as well as an endurance life of around one million write cycles.

Atmel microcontrollers and memory are widely used in all traditional IC applications, such as personal computers, television sets, automotive, home entertainment and mobile phones. Atmel chips are manufactured using the most advanced wafer processes, including BiCMOS, CMOS and Silicon Germanium (SiGe) technologies.
