Combine the best of picture taking with exceptional speed and minimal power consumption. The broad family of Atmel® ARM®-based microcontrollers integrate all the functions required to implement digital cameras on a single-chip, including capturing, processing, compressing, displaying, and storing images in Flash cards, as well as controlling camera functionality through the use of an integrated processor. Additionally, leveraging our MCU expertise combined with the expertise of our sensor partners, your design can more efficiently and effectively process and integrate the real-time data of its surroundings with our sensor hub technology. In addition, the Atmel ATSHA204 CryptoAuthentication™ IC authentication chip family is the only battery authentication IC that uses a SHA-256 cryptographic engine and a 256-bit key to protect cameras from counterfeit accessories, such as battery packs.
