Convenience, security, reliability and power efficiency drive low-frequency RF application requirements. You can rely on Atmel® to help you design cost-effective, highly reliable RF products. Atmel wireless technologies enable innovative, scalable and dedicated designs that fit small footprints, consume very little power, and operate in rugged environments—indoors or outdoors.

Atmel wireless technologies span these in-demand wireless areas:

  • 802.15.4 — To support today's increasingly-connected applications, Atmel offers a complete line of IEEE 802.15.4-compliant and ZigBee® certified wireless solutions. These are based on the rich family of Atmel RF transceivers, as well as Atmel AVR®, ARM®-based and single-chip wireless microcontrollers.
  • Wi-Fi — Address the needs for Wi-Fi capability in embedded systems. Atmel low-power Wi-Fi solutions cover a wide range of applications. The SmartConnect solutions include self-contained, low-power, and certified modules bringing wireless Internet connectivity to any embedded design. The SmartDirect solutions offer the world’s first fully-integrated RF, baseband SoC (system on a chip) Wi-Fi personal area network (PAN) solution.
  • Smart RF — Target proprietary (non-standards based) wireless industrial and consumer applications such as automatic metering, alarm systems, and home control, as well as toys and gaming.
  • RF Identification — Address the needs of contactless identification products operating at 100 to 150kHz bandwidth ranges. A specialty is 125kHz access control and waste applications and the 134.2kHz animal identification application according the ISO 11784 and 11785 standards.
  • IR Control — Atmel provides a complete family of ICs for the use in IR (infrared) remote control receiver modules. End applications include consumer products such as TV, VCR, audio systems, cameras, air conditioners, and toys.
