Atmel Extends Its Popular 8O51 Flash Microcontroller Family With a New 128-Kbyte Device

NANTES, France, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmel(R) Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) announced today the AT89C51RE2, a new 8O51-based microcontroller with 128 Kbytes of Flash program memory.

The device is an addition to the existing 16-, 32-, and 64-Kbyte 8O51 Flash family of AT89C51RB2/RC2/RD2/ED2 microcontrollers which have become an industry standard.

The AT89C51RE2 comes with a rich feature set including 8-Kbytes of RAM, two UARTs, watchdog timer, power-on-reset, power-fail detector, PCA, SPI and on-chip debug, and up to fifty general-purpose I/Os for application use. The device is ideally suited for industrial and consumer applications such as I/O management, power management, industrial and motor control, smart sensors and set-top boxes. The AT89C51RE2 can operate from 2.7 to 5.5 volts and from 2 to 40 MHz and achieves a 4 MIPS throughput when running at 40 MHz.

A key new feature is the on chip debug (OCD) capability that enables low cost emulation. The hardware debug system with Windows(R) IDE interface allows the user to access debugging functions built into the AT89C51RE2 resulting in faster development and verification of user code in real-time.

Pricing and Availability

The AT89C51RE2 is available in 44-pin PLCC and VQFP packages at USD $4.80 for 10k units. Atmel offers the AT89STK-11, a starter kit for USD $99, to evaluate the AT89C51RE2; designers can either run the demonstration program or their own application. A new low-cost on chip debug tool, AT89OCD-01 will be available by the end of November 2006.
