Atmel to Showcase Power-Efficient Microcontroller Solutions for Industrial and Consumer Applications at ESC DESIGN West 2012

- Meet with Atmel Technology Experts and See Live Demos in Booth #916

- Atmel Technical Theater Presentations Featured on the Hour

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, today announced that it will be exhibiting a variety of its microcontroller (MCU) and embedded solutions at ESC DESIGN West 2012 Silicon Valley in San Jose, California, March 26-29, 2012. At Atmel booth #916, attendees can see demos including:

- Atmel Studio 6: A single integrated development environment supporting
two of the most popular MCU architectures, Atmel ARM® processor-based
devices and Atmel AVR® devices. This demo shows how designers can use
the optimized design environment to debug 8- and 32-bit AVR MCUs and
Cortex(TM)-M3-based MCUs.

- Atmel AVR Solutions: An iPod docking station with RF remote control,
demonstrating Atmel's system solution. The demo is built on software
modules provided by Atmel to help developers accelerate their software
design. These solutions also demonstrate capacitive touch with proximity
sensing, RF and Made For iPod (MFi) support.

- A home security platform: Based on the Atmel SAM3S ARM Cortex-M3
processor-based Flash MCU, the platform uses a low-power ZigBee
wireless passive infrared (PIR) motion detector camera for a secure,
cost-efficient system.

- A temperature sensor louver: Utilizing an Atmel UC3-L0 Xplained
development board and Atmel Temperature Sensor Xplained add-on board,
the system demonstrates temperature monitoring using a heat source and
mechanical louver panel.

- An in-home display: Using a multi-touch Android® tablet featuring Atmel
maXTouch® technology and Atmel SAM9M10 ARM926(TM)-based embedded MCU,
the in-home display will demonstrate touch capability on a low-power
handheld device.

- An efficient, ultra-low power MCU unit: Highlighting MCU efficiency
using the Atmel AVR XMEGA® MCU, this demonstration exhibits fast
wake-up from low-power modes to ultra-low power consumption.

- Power supply authentication: Featuring the Atmel
CryptoAuthentication(TM) ATSHA204 device, this solution will demonstrate
improved safety and cloning prevention.

Atmel Technology Experts and technical experts from partnering companies will present on a variety of topics on the hour in the Atmel Theater, located in booth #916. Come by to learn more about Atmel solutions.
