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 Microcontrollers — 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.
  • RF IdentificationAddress the needs of contactless identification products operating at 100 to 150kHz bandwidth ranges. Especially 125kHz access control and waste applications and the 134.2kHz Animal Identification application according the ISO 11784 and 11785 standards.
  • 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.
  • Wi-Fi — Address the needs for Wi-Fi capability in embedded systems. Atmel low-power Wi-Fi solutions cover a wide range of applications requiring support for legacy Wi-Fi, as well as Wi-Fi Direct. Wi-Fi Direct is a software-based extension of standard Wi-Fi that allows devices to communicate directly without the data passing through a wireless access point (Wi-Fi Router or Gateway).
