The new Atmel's microcontrollers has been introduced - AVR XMEGA.

Atmel says:

AVR XMEGA devices include 2nd generation of picoPower technology, innovative Event System for fast, CPU independent inter-peripheral communication, 4-channel DMA Controller boosts MCU performance, 100% predictable timing, Fast 12-bit ADC and DAC and fast Cryptography support for AES and DES

AVR XMEGA microcontrollers operates from just 1.6 volt with up to 32 MIPS at 32 MHz. Memory size range from 16 to 384 KB of Flash and they come in 44- to 100-pin packages. The XMEGA devices are general purpose microcontrollers well suited for a variety of applications including audio systems, ZigBee®, power tools, medical, board controllers, networking, metering, optical transceivers, motor control, white goods and any battery powered product.
