8-bit AVR Microcontrollers


Sleep modes enable the application to shut down unused modules in the MCU, thereby saving power. The device provides various sleep modes allowing the user to tailor the power consumption to the application requirements.

When enabled, the Brown-out Detector (BOD) actively monitors the power supply voltage during the sleep periods. To further save power, it is possible to disable the BOD in some sleep modes. See also BOD Disable.
