AVR is a family of microcontrollers developed since 1996 by Atmel, acquired by Microchip Technology in 2016. AVR microcontrollers find many applications as embedded systems. They are especially common in hobbyist and educational embedded applications, popularized by their inclusion in many of the Arduino line of open hardware development boards. The original AVR MCU was developed at a local ASIC house in Trondheim, Norway, called Nordic VLSI at the time, now Nordic Semiconductor, where Bogen and Wollan were working as students. Atmel says that the name AVR is not an acronym and does not stand for anything in particular.
The creators of the AVR give no definitive answer as to what the term “AVR” stands for. However, it is commonly accepted that AVR stands for Alf and Vegard’s RISC processor. Among the first of the AVR line was the AT90S8515, which in a 40-pin DIP package has the same pinout as an 8051 microcontroller, including the external multiplexed address and data bus. The AVR 8-bit microcontroller architecture was introduced in 1997.
