Get Started

We'll tell you all you need to know to start evaluating and working with this product.

Large I/O devices such as printers, scanners, and copiers require rugged, high-quality components. Atmel® technology lets you build smart, energy-efficient solutions that deliver superior precision and unbeatable performance.

Features and Benefits

  • Atmel® microcontrollers support the USB On-The-Go (OTG) standard for dual-role host or function capability, a key capability for embedded microcontrollerss that need to communicate without PC intervention.
  • The Atmel maXTouch™ family of touchscreen microcontrollers support unlimited simultaneous touches and boast a refresh rate and signal-to-noise ratio 66 percent better than the nearest competitor.
  • The Atmel QTouch Suite of development tools help you easily design highly differentiated user interfaces. The Integrated Altium Designer CAD software tool offers unparalleled flexibility and faster time-to-market.
  • Larger equipment often uses Controller Area Network (CAN) to interconnect modules. Atmel AVR® microcontrollers offer a rich CAN interface with multiple message objects for maximum ease-of-use. These products can also be field-upgraded over the CAN bus.
  • Atmel CryptoAuthentication™ and Atmel CryptoController™ products offer cost-effective solutions for applications that require secure communication between PCs and networked equipment.

Large I/O Devices

  • Printers, scanners, and copiers demand high-bandwidth solutions. The DMA channel design on Atmel ARM9 series flash microprocessors optimizes on-chip bus usage, freeing the processor for other operations and boosting peripheral data transfer rates.
Large I/O Devices

Interoperability and standards compliance are critical to worldwide market success. Atmel supports leading protocols and industry standards, including USB and On-The-Go (OTG) wired interfaces, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee IEEE 802.15.4 wireless interfaces.
