Atmel Corp. has unveiled Atmel SMART, its latest brand of ARM-based MCUs, and has expanded its SMART portfolio with SmartConnect SAM W23 modules, enabling WiFi connectivity and boasts high performance and low power technology for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Atmel SMART ARM-based MCUs claim to deliver the platform for intelligent, connected devices in the era of IoT, wireless and energy efficiency. These solutions include embedded processing and connectivity, as well as software and tools, designed to make development faster and more cost-effective to bring the best-in-class products to market. Atmel SMART MCUs combine powerful 32bit ARM cores with industry-leading low-power technology and intelligent peripherals.

As part of the Atmel SMART product offering, the SAM W23 module offers the ideal solution for designers seeking to integrate WiFi connectivity even with limited experience with IEEE802.11, RTOS, IP Stack or RF. These modules are based on Atmel's ultra-low-power WiFi SoC combined with Atmel's ARM Cortex M0+ based MCU technology. This turnkey system provides an integrated software solution with application and security protocols such as TLS, integrated network services (TCP/IP stack) and a standard real time operating system (RTOS), which are all available through a simple serial host interface (SPI, UART) within Atmel Studio 6's integrated development platform (IDP).

To help accelerate a designer's development, the SAM W23, mounted on an XPRO wing, and compatible with any existing Atmel Xplained PRO evaluation board, is available. The SmartConnect library is a turnkey Software Framework available in Atmel Studio that removes the need to understand the WiFi stack, allowing designers to focus on adding functions.

The SAM W23 is available both as a fully certified module, as well as a reference design kit for OEMS to build modules based on the SAM W23 chipset. Developers can use the SAM W23 platform as a standalone system or as an add-on solution to enable WiFi connectivity in an existing design.
