picoPower Events


Join the Atmel® picoPower® seminars and learn low power design techniques from Atmel AVR® applications experts. They will guide you through practical hands-on exercises and teach you how to modify your software to achieve the lowest possible power consumption in your designs.

The technical hands-on session will introduce you to the key features of Atmel picoPower technology, and show you how to use them with the entire range of AVR microcontrollers, including tinyAVR®, megaAVR®, AVR XMEGA® and AVR UC3 families.
