This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Microchip Technology AVR DA 8-Bit Microcontrollers

Microchip Technology AVR DA 8-bit Microcontrollers bring real-time performance and capacitive touch sensing to the low-power AVR family of MCUs. 

AVR DA MCUs integrate hardware-based Core Independent Peripherals including configurable logic, intelligent analog functions for precision applications, and the latest-generation Peripheral Touch Controller. The Peripheral Touch Controller enables capacitive buttons, sliders, wheels, and 2D surfaces, with increased noise immunity and water tolerance, enabling state-of-the art interfaces in harsh environments. 

The MCU runs at up to 24MHz and can operate from a 1.8V to 5.5V supply.  It has up to 128KB of flash and up to 16KB of SRAM, making it suitable for wired and wireless communication intensive applications. It also has built-in safety functions and is recommended for safety-critical applications in industrial and automotive products.  

  • Core Independent Peripherals 
    • Digital and analog functions that run independent of the CPU for deterministic response 
  • Peripheral Touch Controller 
    • Enables buttons, sliders, wheels, 2D gesture surfaces 
    • Driven Shield+ for increased noise immunity and water tolerance 
  • 8-bit AVR CPU 
    • 24MHz internal oscillator 
    • 1.8V to 5.5V supply voltage 
  • Memories 
    • Up to 128KB Flash 
    • Up to 16KB SRAM 
  • Built-in safety functions: POR, BOR, VLM, CRC scan 
    • Recommended for automotive and industrial safety-critical applications
