Atmel has announced production availability for what it claims is the world's smallest flash AVR microcontroller package. The Atmel ATtiny4, ATtiny5, ATtiny9 and ATtiny10 AVR microcontroller (MCU) come in an ultra-small 8-pad UDFN package, with a dimension of only 2x2x0.6mm and less than 8mg in weight.

The new Atmel devices target applications in the consumer electronics, lighting, and industrial control markets. They are well suited for lightweight and small form factor consumer applications, such as cell phones, toys, tooth brushes and other personal care and portable electronic products, Atmel said.

In addition to being 55% smaller than any other 6-/8-pin flash microcontroller in the market, the ATtiny4, ATtiny5, ATtiny9 and ATtiny10 devices deliver six times higher processing speed than the closest competitor, claimed the company.

The Atmel ATtiny4, ATtiny5, ATtiny9 and ATtiny10 are available now. Volume pricing start at US$0.52 for 10,000 quantities.
