General Description
1.1
Introduction
The Atmel® ATA8510/15 is a highly integrated, low-power UHF ASK/FSK RF transceiver with an integrated AVR®
microcontroller.
The Atmel ATA8510/15 is partitioned into three sections; an RF front end, a digital baseband and the low-power 8-bit AVR
microcontroller. The product is designed for the ISM frequency bands in the ranges of 310MHz to 318MHz, 418MHz to
477MHz and 836MHz to 956MHz. The external part count is kept to a minimum due to the very high level of integration in
this device. By combining outstanding RF performance with highly sophisticated baseband signal processing, robust
wireless communication can be easily achieved. The receive path uses a low-IF architecture with an integrated double
quadrature receiver and digitized IF processing. This results in high image rejection and excellent blocking performance. The
transmit path uses a closed loop fractional-N modulator with Gauss shaping and pre-emphasis functionality for high data
rates. In addition, highly flexible and configurable baseband signal processing allows the transceiver to operate in several
scanning, wake-up and automatic self-polling scenarios. For example, during polling the IC can scan for specific message
content (IDs) and save valid telegram data in the FIFO buffer for later retrieval. The device integrates two receive paths that
enable a parallel search for two telegrams with different modulations, data rates, wake-up conditions, etc.
The Atmel ATA8510/15 implements a flexible service configuration concept and supports up to 15 channels. The channels
are grouped into five service configurations with three channels each. Three service configurations are located in the
EEPROM. Two service configurations are located in the SRAM to allow on-the-fly modifications during IDLEMode via SPI
commands or application software. The application software is located in the Flash for Atmel ATA8510. Highly configurable
and autonomous scanning capability enables flexible polling scenarios with up to 15 channels. The configuration of the
transceiver is stored in a 1024byte EEPROM. The SPI interface enables external control and device reconfiguration.

Figure 1-1 shows an overview of the main functional blocks of the Atmel® ATA8510/15. External control of the
Atmel ATA8510/15 is performed through the SPI pins SCK, MOSI, MISO, and NSS on port B. The configuration of the
Atmel ATA8510/15 is stored in the EEPROM and a large portion of the functionality is defined by the firmware located in the
ROM and processed by the AVR®. An SPI command can trigger the AVR to configure the hardware according to settings
that are stored in the EEPROM and start up a given system mode (e.g., RXMode, TXMode or PollingMode). Internal events
such as “Start of Telegram” or “FIFO empty” are signaled to an external microcontroller on pin 28 (PB6/EVENT).
During the start-up of a service, the relevant part of the EEPROM content is copied to the SRAM. This allows faster access
by the AVR during the subsequent processing steps and eliminates the need to write to the EEPROM during runtime
because parameters can be modified directly in the SRAM. As a consequence the user does not need to observe the
EEPROM read/write cycle limitations.
It is important to note that all PWRON and NPWRON pins (PC1..5, PB4, PB7) are active in OFFMode. This means that even
if the Atmel ATA8510/15 is in OFFMode and the DVCC voltage is switched off, the power management circuitry within the
Atmel ATA8510/15 biases these pins with VS.
AVR ports can be used as button inputs, external LNA supply voltage (RX_ACTIVE), LED drivers, EVENT pin, switching
control for additional SPDT switches, general purpose digital inputs, or wake-up inputs, etc. Some functionality of these ports
is already implemented in the firmware and can be activated by adequate EEPROM configurations. Other functionality is
available only through custom software residing in the 20Kbyte flash program memory (Atmel ATA8510).

Figure 1-3 shows a typical application circuit with an external host microcontroller for the 315MHz or 433.92MHz band
running from a 3V lithium cell. The Atmel® ATA8510/15 stays in OFFMode until NPWRON1 (PC1) is used to wake it up. In
OFFMode the Atmel ATA8510/15 draws typically less than 5nA (600nA maximum at 3.6V/85°C).
In OFFMode all Atmel ATA8510/15 AVR® ports PB0..PB7 and PC0..PC5 are switched to input. PC0..PC5 and PB7 have
internal pull-up resistors ensuring that the voltage at these ports is VS. PB0..PB6 are tri-state inputs and require additional
consideration. PB1, PB2, and PB5 have defined voltages since they are connected to the output of the external
microcontroller. PB4 is connected to ground to avoid unwanted power-ups. PB0, PB3 and PB6 do not require external
circuitry since the internal circuit avoids transverse currents in OFFMode. The external microcontroller has to tolerate the
floating inputs. Otherwise additional pull-down resistors are required on these floating lines.
Typically, the key fob buttons are connected to the external microcontroller and the Atmel ATA8510/15 wake-up is done by
pulling NPWRON1 (pin 15) to ground. If there are not enough ports for button inputs on the microcontroller, it is possible to
connect up to four additional buttons to the ports PC2..PC5. In this case, the occurrence of a port event (button pressed)
generates an event on pin 28. The corresponding port event is available in the event registers.
A PCB trace loop antenna is typically used in this type of application. An internal antenna tuning procedure tunes the
resonant frequency of this loop antenna to the Tx frequency. This is accomplished with an integrated variable capacitor on
the ANT_TUNE pin. RF_OUT and RF_IN are optimally matched to the SPDT_TX and SPDT_RX pins of the integrated
Rx/Tx switch. The SPDT_ANT pin has an impedance of 50 for both the Rx and Tx functions. The DC output voltage of the
power amplifier is required at the SPDT_TX pin for proper operation. Also, the RFIN pin needs a DC path to ground, which is
easily achieved with the matching shunt inductor. The impedance of the loop antenna is transformed to 50 with three
capacitors, two of them external and one built-in at the ANT_TUNE pin.

Together with the fractional-N PLL within the Atmel® ATA8510/15, an external crystal is used to fix the Rx and Tx frequency.
Accurate load capacitors for this crystal are integrated to reduce the system part count and cost. Only four supply blocking
capacitors are needed to decouple the different supply voltages AVCC, DVCC, VS, and VS_PA of the Atmel ATA8510/15.
The exposed die pad is the RF and analog ground of the Atmel ATA8510/15. It is connected directly to AGND via a fused
lead. For applications operating in the 868.3MHz or 915MHz frequency bands a high-band RF input, RFIN_HB, is supplied
and must be used instead of RFIN_LB. The Atmel ATA8510/15 is controlled using specific SPI commands via the SPI
interface, and an internal EEPROM for application specific configurations.

Figure 1-4 shows a stand-alone key fob application circuit for 315MHz or 433.92MHz running from a 3V lithium cell. The
Atmel ATA8510/15 stays in OFFMode until one of the NPWRON ports PC1..PC5 is pulled to ground level, waking up the
circuit. The NPWRON ports PC1..PC5 have internal 50k pull-up resistors and can be left open if not used.
The user application software within the 20Kbyte Flash (Atmel ATA8510) is used to control the Atmel ATA8510/15
transceiver together with the firmware in the 24Kbyte ROM. The Atmel ATA8515 is not suitable for this application. The RF
and decoupling circuitry is similar to Figure 1-3 on page 9.
In this application, an LED is connected to PB7. Alternatively, an additional wake-up button can be used on PB7 instead of
an LED. An LED can also be connected to PB4. However, note the additional pull-down resistor connected in parallel that is
needed to prevent transverse currents in OFFMode. This special case only applies to PB4 because of its active input
characteristics (PWRON).

System Functional Description
2.1
Overview
2.1.1
Service-based Concept
The Atmel® ATA8510/15 is a highly configurable UHF transceiver. The configuration is stored in an internal 1024-byte
EEPROM. The master system control is performed by firmware. General chip-wide settings are loaded from the EEPROM to
hardware registers during system initialization. During start-up of a transmit or receive mode the specific settings are loaded
from the EEPROM or SRAM to the current service in the SRAM and from there to the corresponding hardware registers.
A complete configuration set of the transceiver is called “service” and includes RF settings, demodulation settings, and
telegram handling information. Each service contains three channels which differ in the RF receive or transmit frequencies.
The Atmel ATA8510/15 supports five services which can be configured in various ways to meet customer requirements.
Three service configurations are located in the EEPROM space. They are fixed configurations which should not be changed
during runtime.
Two service configurations are located in the SRAM space and can be modified by USER SW in a Flash application or by an
SPI command during IDLEMode.
A service consists of
● One service-specific configuration part
●
Three channel-specific configuration parts
Further configurations for PollingMode and RSSI are available and can be modified in IDLEMode via an SPI command
and/or User SW.
Figure 2-1 gives an overview on the service based-concept.

Supported Telegrams
2.1.2.1 Telegram Structure
The Atmel® ATA8510/15 supports the transmission and reception of a wide variety of telegrams and protocols. Generally no
special structure is required from a telegram to be received or transmitted by the Atmel ATA8510/15. However, designated
hardware and software features are built in for the blocks that are depicted in Figure 2-2. Using this structure or parts of it
can increase the sensitivity and robustness of the broadcast.
Figure 2-2. Telegram Structure
Desync
Preamble
Data Payload
Checksum
Stop Sequence
Desync:
The de-synchronization is usually a coding violation with a length of several symbols that should provoke a defined restart of
the receiver. The use of a de-synchronization leads to more deterministic receiver behavior, reducing the required preamble
length. This can be favorable in timing-critical and energy-critical applications.
Preamble:
The preamble is a pattern that is sent before the actual data payload to synchronize the receiver and provide the starting
point of the payload. A very regular pattern (e.g., 1-0-1-0...) is recommended for synchronization (“wake-up pattern, WUP”,
sometimes also called “pre-burst”) while a unique, well-defined pattern of up to 32 symbols is required to mark the start of
the data payload (“start frame identifier, SFID” or “start bit”). In polling scenarios the WUP can be tens or hundreds of ms
long.
Data Payload:
The data payload contains the actual information content of the telegram. It can be NRZ or Manchester-coded. The length of
the payload is application dependent, typically 1..64 bytes.
Checksum:
A checksum can be calculated across the data payload to verify that the data have been received correctly. A typical
example is an 8-bit CRC checksum. Data bits at the beginning of the payload can be excluded from the CRC calculation.
Stop Sequence:
The stop sequence is a short data pattern (typically 2 to 6 symbols) to mark the end of the telegram. A coding violation can
be used to prevent additional (non-deterministic) data from being received.
2.1.2.2 NRZ and Manchester Coding
Within this document the following wording is used:
The expression data “bit” describes the real information content that is to be broadcast. This information can be coded in
“symbols” (sometimes also called “chips”) which are then physically transmitted from sender to receiver. The receiver has to
decode the “symbols” back into data “bits” to access the information. The “symbol rate” is therefore always greater or equal
to the “bit rate”.
The Atmel ATA8510/15 supports two coding modes: Manchester coding and non-return-to-zero (NRZ) coding.
NRZ coding is implemented in a straightforward manner: One bit is represented by one symbol.
Manchester coding implements two symbols per data bit. There is always a transition between the two symbols of one data
bit so that one data bit always consists of a “0” and a “1”. The polarity can be either way as shown in Figure 2-3 on page 13.

Manchester coding has many advantages such as simple clock recovery, no DC component, and error detection by code
violation. Drawbacks are the coding/decoding effort and the increased symbol rate which is twice the data rate.

After connecting the supply voltage to the VS pin, the Atmel ATA8510/15 always starts in OFFMode. All internal circuits are
disconnected from the power supply. Therefore, no SPI communication is supported. The Atmel ATA8510/15 can be woken
up by activating the PWRON pin or one of the NPWRONx pins. This triggers the power-on sequence. After the system
initialization the Atmel ATA8510/15 reaches the IDLEMode.
The IDLEMode is the basic system mode supporting SPI communication and transitions to all other operating modes. There
are two options of the IDLEMode requiring configuration in the EEPROM settings:
● IDLEMode(RC) with low power consumption using the fast RC (FRC) oscillator for processing
●
IDLEMode(XTO) with active crystal oscillator for high accuracy clock output or timing measurements
The transmit mode (TXMode) enables data transmission using the selected service/channel configurations. It is usually
enabled by the SPI command “Set System Mode”, or directly after power-on, when selected in the EEPROM setting.
The receive mode (RXMode) provides data reception on the selected service/channel configuration. The precondition for
data reception is a valid preamble. The receiver continuously scans for a valid telegram and receives the data if all preconfigured checks are successful. The RXMode is usually enabled by the SPI command “Set System Mode”, or directly after
power-on, when selected in the EEPROM setting.
In PollingMode the receiver is activated for a short period of time to check for a valid telegram on the selected
service/channel configurations. The receiver is deactivated if no valid telegram is found and a sleep period with very low
power consumption elapses. This process is repeated periodically in accordance with the polling configuration. The initial
settings are stored in the EEPROM and copied during firmware initialization to the SRAM. This allows modification of the
PollingMode timing and service/channel configuration during IDLEMode.
The tune and check mode (TCMode) offers calibration and self-checking functionality for the VCO, and FRC oscillators as
well as for antenna tuning, temperature measurement, and polling cycle accuracy. This mode is activated via the SPI
command “Calibrate and Check”. When selected in the EEPROM settings, tune and check tasks are also used during
system initialization after power-on. Furthermore, they can also be activated periodically during PollingMode.
Table 2-1 shows the relations between the operating modes and their corresponding power supplies, clock sources, and
sleep mode settings.

Together with the fractional-N PLL, the crystal oscillator (XTO) generates the local oscillator (LO) signal for the mixer in
RXMode. The RF signal comes either from the low-band input (RFIN_LB) or from the high-band input (RFIN_HB) and is
amplified by the low-noise amplifier (LNA) and down-converted by the mixer to the intermediate frequency (IF) using the LO
signal. A 10dB IF amplifier with low-pass filter characteristic is used to achieve enhanced system sensitivity without affecting
blocking performance.
After the mixer, the IF signal is sampled using a high-resolution analog-to-digital converter (ADC).
Within the Rx digital signal processing (Rx DSP) the received signal from the ADC is filtered by a digital channel filter and
demodulated. Two data receive paths, path A and path B, are included in the Rx DSP after the digital channel filter.
In addition, the receive path can be configured to provide the digital output of an internal temperature sensor (Temp()).
ATA8510/ATA8515 [DATASHEET]
9315G–INDCO–08/15

In TXMode the fractional-N PLL generates the Tx frequency. The power amplifier (PA) generates an RF output power signal
programmable from –10dBm to +14dBm at RF_OUT. The FSK modulation is performed by changing the frequency setting of
the fractional-N PLL dynamically with Tx digital signal processing (Tx DSP). Digital preemphasis and digital Gauss filtering
can be activated in the Tx DSP in order to achieve higher data rates or reduce occupied bandwidth. The ASK modulation is
performed by switching the power amplifier on and off. An ASK shaping filter is available to reduce the transmitted bandwidth
of the modulated PA output signal. The shaping filter can also be used at the start and end of an FSK transmission.
With the single pole double throw (SPDT) switch the RF signal from the antenna is switched to RFIN in RXMode and from
RF_OUT to the antenna in TXMode. An adjustable capacitor and an RF level detector on ANT_TUNE are used to tune the
center frequency of loop antennas to reduce tolerances and capacitive proximity effects.
The system is controlled by an AVR® CPU with 24KB firmware ROM and 20KB user flash for the Atmel® ATA8510.
1024-byte EEPROM, 1024-byte SRAM, and other peripherals are supporting the transceiver handling. Two GPIO ports,
PB[7:0] and PC[5:0], are available for external digital connections, for example, as an alternate function the SPI interface is
connected to port B. The Atmel ATA8510/15 is controlled by the EEPROM configuration and SPI commands and the
functional behavior is mainly determined by firmware in the ROM. Much of the configuration can be modified by the
EEPROM settings. The firmware running on the AVR gives access to the hardware functionality of the Atmel ATA8510/15.
Extensions to this firmware can be added in the 20KB of Flash memory for the Atmel ATA8510. The Rx DSP and Tx DSP
registers are addressed directly and accessible from the AVR. A set of sequencer state machines is included to perform Rx
and Tx path operations (such as enable, disable, receive, transmit) which require a defined timing parallel to the AVR
program execution.
The power management contains low-dropout (LDO) regulators and reset circuits for the supply voltages VS, AVCC and
DVCC, of the Atmel ATA8510/15. In OFFMode all the supply voltages AVCC and DVCC, are switched off to achieve very
low current consumption. The Atmel ATA8510/15 can be powered up by activating the PWRON pin or one of the
NPWRON[6:1] pins because they are still active in OFFMode. The AVCC domain can be switched on and off independently
from DVCC. The Atmel ATA8510/15 includes two idle modes. In IDLEMode(RC) only the DVCC voltage regulator, the FRC
and SRC oscillators are active and the AVR uses a power-down mode to achieve low current consumption. The same
power-down mode can be used during the inactive phases of the PollingMode. In IDLEMode(XTO) the AVCC voltage
domain as well as the XTO are additionally activated.
An integrated watchdog timer is available to restart the Atmel ATA8510/15 when it is not served within the configured timeout period.
3.2
Receive Path
3.2.1
Overview
The receive path consists of a low-noise amplifier (LNA), mixer, IF amplifier, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and an Rx
digital signal processor (Rx DSP). The fractional-N PLL and the XTO deliver the local oscillator frequency in RXMode. The
receive path is controlled by the RF front-end registers.
Two separate LNA inputs, one for low-band and one for high-band, are provided to obtain optimum performance matching
for each frequency range and to allow multi-band applications. A radio frequency (RF) level detector at the LNA output and a
switchable damping included into the single-pole double-trough (SPDT) switch is used in the presence of large blockers to
achieve enhanced system blocking performance.
The mixer converts the received RF signal to a low intermediate frequency (IF) of about 250kHz. A double-quadrature
architecture is used for the mixer to achieve high image rejection. Additionally, the third-order suppression of the local
oscillator (LO) harmonics makes receiving without a front-end SAW filter less critical, such as in a car key fob application.
An IF amplifier provides additional gain and improves the receiver sensitivity by 2-3dB. Because of built-in filter function, the
in-band compression is degraded by 10dB, while the out-of-band compression remains unchanged.
The ADC converts the IF signal into the digital domain. Due to the high effective resolution of the ADC, the channel filter and
received signal strength indicator (RSSI) can be realized in the digital signal domain. Therefore, no analog gain control
(AGC) potentially leading to critical timing issues or analog filtering is required in front of the ADC. This leads to a receiver
front end with excellent blocking performance up to the 1dB compression point of the LNA and mixer, and a steep digital
channel filter can be used.
The Rx DSP performs the channel filtering and converts the digital output signal of the ADC to the baseband for
demodulation. Due to the digital realization of these functions the Rx DSP can be adapted to the needs of many different
applications. Channel bandwidth, data rate, modulation type, wake-up criteria, signal checks, clock recovery, and many
other properties are configurable. The RSSI value is realized completely in the digital signal domain, enabling very high
relative and absolute accuracy that is only deteriorated by the gain errors of the LNA, mixer, and ADC.
16
ATA8510/ATA8515 [DATASHEET]
9315G–INDCO–08/15
Two independent receive paths A and B are integrated in the Rx DSP after the channel filter and allow the use of different
data rates, modulation types, and protocols without the need to power up the receive path more than once to decide which
signal should be received. This results in a reduced polling current in several applications.
The integration of remote keyless entry (RKE), passive entry and go (PEG) and tire-pressure monitoring systems (TPM) into
one module is simplified because completely different protocols can be supported and a low polling current is achieved. It is
even possible to configure different receive RF bands for different applications by using the two LNA inputs. For example, a
TPM receiver can be realized at 433.92MHz while a PEG system uses the 868MHz ISM band with multi-channel
communication.
3.2.2
Rx Digital Signal Processing (Rx DSP)
The Rx digital signal processing (DSP) block performs the digital filtering, decoding, checking, and byte-wise buffering of the
Rx samples that are derived from the ADC as shown in Figure 3-2. The Rx DSP provides the following outputs:
● Raw demodulated data at the TRPA/B pins
●
●
●
Decoded data at the TMDO and TMDO_CLK pins
Buffered data bytes toward the data FIFO and ID check block

The channel filter determines the receiver bandwidth. Its output is used for both receiving paths A and B, making it
necessary to configure the filter to match both paths. The receiving paths A and B are identical and consist of an ASK/FSK
demodulator with attached signal checks, a frame synchronizer which supports pattern-based searches for the telegram
start and a 1-byte hardware buffer with integrated CRC checker for the received data.
Depending on the signal checks, one path is selected which writes the received data to the data FIFO and optionally to the
ID check block.
The RSSI values are determined by the demodulator and written via the RSSI buffer to the support FIFO where the latest
16 values are stored for further processing.

The transmission data source can be selected from a register bit, the transparent input pin 18 (TMDI), and the Tx modulator
that fetches the data from the DFIFO and SFIFO.
If ASK/OOK modulation is selected, the data stream is used to directly switch the power amplifier on and off. The transmitted
carrier frequency is set by the PLL frequency synthesizer.
If FSK modulation is selected, the data stream is used to switch between two frequencies that are generated by the PLL
frequency synthesizer. The power amplifier is constantly on. Power ramping (ASK shaping) can be used during on and off
switching. To reduce the occupied bandwidth a digital Gauss-shaping filter can be enabled. For data rates above 20kHz
Manchester or 40kHz NRZ-coding a digital preemphasis filter has to be enabled to compensate for the PLL loop filter.

AVR Controller
3.4.1
AVR Controller Sub-System
The AVR® controller sub-system consists of the AVR CPU core, its program memory, and a data bus with data memory and
peripheral blocks attached. The receive path and the transmit path also have their user interfaces connected to the data bus.
CPU Core
The main function of the CPU core is to ensure correct program execution. For this reason, the CPU core must be able to
access memories, perform calculations, control peripherals, and handle interrupts.

In order to maximize performance and parallelism, the AVR uses a Harvard architecture—with separate memories and
buses for program and data. Instructions in the program memory are executed with single-level pipelining. While one
instruction is being executed, the next instruction is prefetched from the program memory. This concept enables instructions
to be executed in every clock cycle. The program memory is in-system reprogrammable Flash memory and ROM.
The fast-access register file contains 32  8-bit general purpose working registers with a single clock cycle access time.
This allows a single-cycle arithmetic and logic unit (ALU) operation. In a typical ALU operation, two operands are output from
the register file, the operation is executed, and the result is stored back in the register file - in one clock cycle.
Six of the 32 registers can be used as three 16-bit indirect address register pointers for data space addressing, enabling
efficient address calculations. One of these address pointers can also be used as an address pointer for lookup tables in the
Flash program memory. Referred to as ‘X,’ ‘Y,’ and ‘Z’ registers, these higher 16-bit function registers are described later in
this section.
ATA8510/ATA8515 [DATASHEET]
9315G–INDCO–08/15
19
The ALU supports arithmetic and logic operations between registers or between a constant and a register. Single register
operations can also be executed in the ALU. After an arithmetic operation, the status register is updated to reflect
information about the result of the operation.
The program flow is provided by conditional and unconditional jump and call instructions which are able to directly address
the entire address space. Most AVR® instructions have a single 16-bit word format. Every program memory address
contains a 16- or 32-bit instruction.
The program memory space is divided in two sections, the boot program section and the application program section. Both
sections have dedicated lock bits for write and read/write protection. The store program memory (SPM) instruction that
writes into the application Flash memory section must reside in the boot program section.
During interrupts and subroutine calls, the return address of the program counter (PC) is stored on the stack. The stack is
effectively allocated in the general data SRAM—the stack size is thus only limited by the total SRAM size and the usage of
the SRAM. All user programs must initialize the stack pointer (SP) in the reset routine before subroutines or interrupts are
executed. The SP is read/write accessible in the I/O space. The data SRAM can easily be accessed through the five different
addressing modes supported in the AVR architecture.
The memory spaces in the AVR architecture are all linear and regular memory maps.
A flexible interrupt module has its control registers in the I/O space with an additional global interrupt enable bit in the status
register. All interrupts have a separate interrupt vector in the interrupt vector table. The interrupts have priority in accordance
with their interrupt vector position. The lower the interrupt vector address, the higher the priority.
The I/O memory space contains 64 addresses for CPU peripheral functions as control registers, SPI, and other I/O functions.
The I/O memory can be accessed directly, or as the data space locations following those of the register file, 0x20 - 0x5F. In
addition, the circuit has extended I/O space from 0x60 - 0x1FF and SRAM where only the ST/STS/STD and LD/LDS/LDD
instructions can be used.
