8-bit AVR Product Families
Microchip’s 8-bit AVR MCUs are an excellent choice for a wide variety of embedded systems. These devices offer a unique
combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. Optimized to reduce development time, they are based on the
industry’s most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming.
The tinyAVR MCU family is optimized for applications that require performance, power efficiency and ease of use in a small package. All tinyAVR devices are based on the same architecture and compatible with other AVR® devices. The integrated ADC, DAC, comparators, EEPROM memory and brown-out detector let you build applications without adding external components. tinyAVR devices also offer Flash memory and on-chip debug for fast, secure and cost-effective in-circuit upgrades that significantly cut your time to market.
megaAVR®The megaAVR family is the ideal choice for designs that need some extra muscle. For applications requiring large amounts of code, megaAVR devices offer substantial program and data memories with performance up to 20 MIPS. Meanwhile, innovative picoPower technology helps minimize power consumption. All megaAVR devices offer self-programmability for fast, secure and cost-effective in-circuit upgrades. You can even upgrade the Flash memory while running your application.
The XMEGA family of MCUs delivers the best possible combination of real-time performance, high integration and low power consumption for 8/16-bit MCU applications.
