SoC Solutions for Wearables

From smart watches and fitness bands to industrial, healthcare and wellness products, wearable electronics comprise a new growth vector for the exploding Internet of Things (IoT) market. Wearable products require a broad range of technologies—from microcontrollers (MCUs) and microprocessors to control the device, to sensor-fusion and sensor management, GUI and touch interfaces, BLE and Wi-Fi for wireless communication and security for authentication and anti-counterfeiting.

Atmel develops turnkey system on a chip (SoC) solutions for wearable designs. These devices leverage our broad product portfolio, global support infrastructure, strategic partnerships, and Atmel® Studio development environment.
