Atmel®, a leader in microcontroller and touch technology solutions, the City of San Jose, and Team San Jose, the manager of the convention center and convention and visitors bureau, today announced the 2012 Atmel Technology Live Developer Conference to be held in San Jose, California on September 11-13, 2012. This conference is an exclusive opportunity for developers to interact with the experts behind the products and solutions Atmel offers. From formal and informal discussions to hands-on workshops and demos, 2012 Atmel Technology Live is primed to deliver what developers need to sharpen their technical expertise.
Atmel''s new maXTouch® S Series touchscreen controllers enable system designers to create a new breed of mobile products. With rich features and intelligent algorithms, the devices support ultra-slim and light form factors, immersive responsiveness, vivid displays, exceptionally long battery life and multiple ways of capturing user input.
New ARM processor-based SAM4 family offers the marketís highest Cortex-M Flash memory density of 2MB, 192KB SRAM and best-in-class code protection. As a part of its ARM® processor-based microcontroller (MCU) offerings, Atmel is also unveiling its fifth generation Cortex-M4 based Flash MCUs. Throughout 2012, the Atmel SAM3 and SAM4 families will quadruple the Atmel Cortex-M product portfolio to nearly 200 ARM-based microcontrollers and will include devices with on-chip memory densities of up to 2MB Flash, 192KB of SRAM and extensive peripherals including high-speed USB. Several devices in the new Atmel ARM Cortex-M4 Flash family will also include a floating point unit (FPU) expanding the Atmel ARM processor-based device offering into the Digital Signal Controller (DSC) market.
The industry''s highest performing stylus for tablets and handsets. The new active stylus solution from Atmel delivers unprecedented capabilities including Windows 8 compatibility, 1mm stylus tip, and simultaneous touch and stylus operation. Combined with Atmel industry-leading maXTouch® solutions, which are powering millions of smartphones and tablets today, the maXStylus family offers an unparalleled human interface by providing simultaneous touch and stylus functionality. Referred to as multiSense functionality, this feature enables advanced gesturing such as zooming in/out while writing and scrolling; page flipping while scrolling; and selecting a tool or content.
Integration of an ultra-low-power LCD controller in AVR XMEGA microcontrollers reduces design complexity, lowers system cost and increases utility metering, home automation, climate control, industrial control, sport equipment, toys, eToken, medical, power tools, fire alarm systems and other applications that require a small graphical user interface.
The AVR XMEGA LCD controller supports displays with up to 160 segments, and delivers built-in contrast control, ASCII character mapping, programmable segment blinking and SWAP mode.
In addition to the integrated LCD controller, the devices also feature a Full-Speed USB device with operation from an internal oscillator, dual 12-bit ADC, DMA controller as well as the Atmel Event System and picoPower® technology.
