Just arrived our new high performance XMEGA Controller based on the latest AVR XMEGA Microcontrollers from Atmel®.
This state-of-the-art controller board includes many features not available in other controller boards, including 12-bit accuracy
A/D converters, separate DMA controllers to reduce CPU load, ultra-low power operation with new picoPower technology.
The new XMEGA Controller board is ideal for a wide variety of embedded applications, requiring high-speed, low power and high accuracy.
The controller is ideal for use in alternative energy systems or low power remote monitoring applications, as well as
a central control unit for machinery, security or irrigation systems.
This board features in-circuit program download for easy updates and program changes using the pre-installed bootloader.
This can be done with the controller in place, or on-site. All port pins on the microcontroller are brought out to standard IDCC Headers for easy connection.
Two UART's are connected to a standard RS232 driver IC, for easy computer interfacing and programming. A standard Micro SD Card socket is
provided for data storage and easy access to stored data. An on-board standard 32kHz crystal provides a Real Time Clock with
low power operation. All necessary power supply components are included together with a low voltage requlator for the microcontroller and the various support
components. A standard JTAG connection is provided for easy debugging and testing. Test led's and pushbuttons are included for
program development, as well as a standard Reset Pushbutton. The board is compact in size and can easily be mounted in existing machinery or
The XMega Controller is based on the new ATXMega128 microcontroller from Atmel® . This microcontroller is one of the most powerful AVR Microcontrollers on the market.
Included within the microcontroller is a massive 128k of Flash Program Memory, enabling easy rewriting and a huge storage space for large programs. The microcontroller
also includes 8kbytes of RAM and 2kbytes or EEPROM, allowing a large temporary storage area for data values and also for permanent values to be retained when the power is
disconnected from the board. A highly accurate sixteen channel 12-bit A/D convertor is included, making the system ideal for reading real-world and analog data.
The 12-bit accuracy is makes this a product leader over the standard 10-bit accuracy in other microcontrollers. Four
channels of 12-bit D/A converter ouputs are also available. A real-time counter, together with a large number of 16-bit timers are also available, included as standard is the SPI and I2C communications interface.
The ATXMega128 core is a high throughput RISC processor allowing up 32 MIPS, as well as low power operation.
Our new XMEGA Controller, is the latest state-of-the-art Controller Board, with high-speed, low power and 12-bit accuracy A/D inputs.
The XMEGA Controller is ideal for use in real-world monitoring applications as well as low power alternative energy solutions and remote applications.
