In a competitive marketplace, customers demand sophisticated features and intuitive controls. Atmel® microcontrollers come with pre-tested and pre-certified software modules to speed prototyping, eliminate certification testing, keep costs in line and improve interoperability.

Features and Benefits

  • The single-chip Atmel ATmega128RFA1 supports wireless communication and touch functionality which makes the chip a great choice for capacitive touch remote control applications.
  • The embedded Atmel BitCloud® software stack offers provides a software development platform for reliable, scalable, and secure wireless applications running on Atmel wireless platforms.

Lighting Controls

  • Remote controls are ideal candidates for high-performance Atmel AVR® microcontrollers with or without integrated capacitive touch and wireless capabilities, as well as for Atmel power line communications (PLC) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions with full digital implementation.

Capacitive Touch Remote Control Diagram

Atmel solutions give you design choices to fit your lighting control application needs. For example, you can choose a single-chip Atmel AVR microcontroller with integrated secure wireless and capacitive touch Atmel QTouch™ library, or a non-specific Atmel AVR microcontroller that you can match with a range of external low-power, standard-compliant transceiver options.
