Offering End-to-End Solution, Cloud Ecosystem Program Accelerates Time-to-Market for Developers Creating Next-Generation Smart, Secure and Connected IoT Solutions on Atmel Devices
SAN JOSE, CA, July 13, 2015 – Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a global leader in microcontroller (MCU) and touch solutions, today launched the Atmel Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Ecosystem Partner Program. The new program enables developers using Atmel | SMART MCUs and Atmel SmartConnect wireless solutions to access Atmel’s market-leading ecosystem cloud partners for device management, data analytics, and visualization in order to experience an end-to-end IoT solution development ‘out of the box’.
With the increasing need to collect, visualize and analyze data from IoT edge nodes and to manage the associated services, cloud connectivity is becoming an essential element for product development. Device management is also an important aspect of cloud services as more devices are performing functions through remote management, such as a connected thermostat that is programmed remotely and sends climate information back to the user’s remote device reducing overall power consumption while providing a better user experience.
Each cloud partner in this program not only brings a unique, distinct feature to the IoT ecosystem for developers using Atmel solutions but also offers production-ready software stacks ported on Atmel wireless platforms to help accelerate time-to-market. Developers can now easily connect to the cloud through various software as a service (SaaS) options, based on their use-case requirements early in the development cycle. Additionally, Atmel is in the process of onboarding multiple cloud service partners providing regional and vertical expertise where required.
“As a leading provider of IoT solutions, our goal is to provide a seamless end-to-end solution for our developers,” said Reza Kazerounian, SVP and GM of Microcontroller Business Unit, Atmel Corporation. “Launching this highly anticipated IoT ecosystem partner program, we are now one of the few suppliers that delivers solutions from the edge node to the cloud, along with full software support. We are excited to team with these unique cloud service companies and look forward to adding many more.”
With the anticipated growth of billions of devices by 2020 in the IoT market, secure, cloud services will be a critical element to ensure Internet accessibility connectivity of these smart devices. The partner program ensures developers have the opportunity to design with Atmel’s pre-certified Wi-Fi, 802.15.4, and multimode modules and Atmel | SMART MCUs to provide a seamless end-to-end solution from the edge node to the cloud with a simple, plug-and-play connection that works out of the box. IoT developers can simply use any of the compatible Atmel development boards for access to the application programming interface (API) to qualified cloud partners.
To accelerate a design, several development kits are available with access to Atmel Cloud Partners including the WINC1500-XSTK,SAMW25-XPRO, SAMR21-XPRO and the Arduino Zero. All Atmel boards are fully compatible with the latest version of Atmel Studio integrated development platform.
“We are thrilled to partner with a leading IoT solutions provider such as Atmel,” said Cyril Brignone, CEO, Arrayent. “Trusted brands worldwide have gone to market at consumer scale using our IoT cloud service platform. Our partnership with Atmel, based on a small footprint embedded library combined with a scalable cloud service, offers our joint customers a proven, secure, and ready-to-go IoT solution.”
