8-Bit MCUs

ATmega4809 Product Family

8-bit MCUs Built for Real-time Control with Core Independent Peripherals

Combining intelligent hardware peripherals along with the low-power capability of an AVR® core, megaAVR® microcontrollers (MCUs) broaden the effectiveness of your real-time control systems. Devices like the ATmega4809, ATmega4808, ATmega3209 and ATmega3208 offer individualized options for larger memory, pin counts and packages, while devices such as the ATmega1609, ATmega1608, ATmega809 and ATmega808 offer lower memory and pin-count variants. In addition to their easy-to-configure Core Independent Peripherals, all of these devices include a high-speed Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) that enables efficient noise reduction. This makes devices in the ATmega4809 family optimal as companion MCUs for complex microprocessor-based systems, or as stand-alone processors in command-and-control environments.

Engineered for Real-time Control

Modern control applications utilize MCUs to increase their performance, while making them more efficient and reliable. These megaAVR devices take the concept further with a peripheral set designed to decrease system response time and increase reliability, while at the same time reducing overall code footprint, validation time and system development costs.


Getting Started

Building Blocks for Real-Time Control

High-Speed ADC

True 10-bit resolution and conversion speeds of 115,000 samples per second (ksps) ensure accurate and timely analog signal acquisition. Triggering and notifications can be transmitted to other peripherals without CPU intervention, enabling real-time response to system events.

Peripheral Event System

The on board dual 10-bit, 115 ksps ADC and 8-bit DAC with multiple selectable internal voltage references and comparators can be connected internally to create closed-loop feedback without requiring pins or PCB space or can be used for other functions within the applications. In addition, the on-board analog comparator offers fast propagation delay which is configurable through hysteresis. The analog comparator can also be connected directly with the DAC and the output is directly available on a pin.


Configurable Custom Logic (CCL)

The Configurable Custom Logic is a programmable logic peripheral which can be connected to the device pins, events, or other internal peripherals. This allows the user to eliminate logic gates for glue logic functions on the PCB. Each Lookup Table (LUT) consists of three inputs, a truth table, options synchronizer, filter and edge detector. Each LUT can generate an output that can be routed internally or available on pins. This eliminates the need for external logic and reduces BOM cost.
