Edge Nodes with a Competitive Edge
Atmel powers the IoT by focusing on edge nodes, a category that includes everything from key fobs, fitness bands, and home appliances to industrial equipment and infrastructures for smart cities. There are literally hundreds of applications for smart devices with sensing and connectivity capabilities, but most edge nodes use a familiar set of building blocks – a combination of embedded processing, connectivity, security, sensing, and software.
In many ways, edge nodes are a natural evolution of embedded computing, with connectivity to the cloud representing the next step in the evolutionary ladder. As a long-time leader in embedded computing, Atmel is a driving force in this evolution, with best-in-class IP and software that enables the right levels of performance, scalability, compatibility, and energy efficiency.
Leveraging our extensive portfolio of embedded technologies, we have optimized the blocks for IoT and bring them together in a cohesive, easy-to-use format that gives makers and designers a competitive edge.
