Welcome to the World of ATMEL’s AVR32 Microcontrollers
Atmel has created a new 32-bit RISC microprocessor. His name is AVR32 and he was developed by the very successful AVR team in Norway.
Atmel designed the first new 32-bit processor specifically for applications that require both performance and low power consumption. The AVR32 processor core does more processing per clock cycle so the same throughput can be achieved at a lower clock frequency with substantially less power consumption.
AVR32 UC3 Processor Family
The AVR32 UC3 series is based on a 3-stage pipeline Harvard architecture and includes advanced features such as DSP arithmetic’s, single-cycle multiply and accumulate instructions and atomic bit or word read-modify-write instruction.
The AVR32 UC3 core is the first core in the industry to integrate single-cycle read/write SRAM with a direct interface to the CPU that bypasses the system bus to achieve faster execution, cycle deterministic and low power consumption.
The core can deliver up to 1.3 Dhrystone MIPS/MHz running from on-chip memory.
