AVR micros for USB applications allow direct in-system programming

AVR micros for USB applications allow direct in-system programming
Available from Nu Horizons, Atmel’s latest 8-bit AVR micros, dubbed the AT90USB82 and AT90USB162 feature a 12 Mbits/s controller and 8 or 16 Kbytes of memory respectively. The memory can be programmed in-system directly through the USB interface and on-chip EEPROM of 512 bytes enables parameters to be set without interference to the application. This simplifies manufacturing, cuts costs and reduces equipment size because the programme can be loaded at the end of the production line without the need for a dedicated in-system programming connector. Programming takes under 0.15s for 4KB and under 0.5s for 12KB. Communication with external components is via an SPI and UART interface and a 100mA on-chip voltage regulator can also power companion devices such as RF transceivers for wireless adapters or laser sensors for high-performance mice.

16-bit Microcontrollers with 64 Kbytes of Flash in 28-pin Packages

16-bit Microcontrollers with 64 Kbytes of Flash in 28-pin Packages
Microchip announces eight new members of its PIC24F 16-bit microcontroller family, with up to 64 Kbytes of Flash program memory and up to 8 Kbytes of RAM, in smaller, lower cost, 28- and 44-pin packages including a tiny 6x6 mm 28-pin QFN package option. The 28 and 44-pin PIC24FJ64GA004 family contains a similar peripheral set to the 100-pin PIC24FJ128GA family. “Peripheral Pin Select” pin-mapping allows designers to use the available pins exactly as they like. For many applications, this can allow the use of a smaller, more cost-effective microcontroller. The wide range of on-board peripherals includes two independent channels each of I2C UART and SPI communications.
