We'll tell you all you need to know to start evaluating and working with this product.
Sensors are everywhere and are being designed into everything in the connected world. The requirements are moving from simple monitoring to full interpretation of the devices state and situation. Many of these tasks require the simultaneous analysis and fusion of data from different sensors and sensor types. These can include motion sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers), environment sensors (light level, color, temperature, pressure, humidity) and many others. To simplify enabling these systems, Atmel has partnered with the leading sensor manufacturers and sensor fusion specialists to provide a complete, easy to implement Sensor Hub Solution. These combine Atmel’s ultra-low-power technology with the expertise of our partners to give you accurate, real-time sensor data which can be used to provide the desired contextual awareness with minimal power consumption and maximize battery life. These systems are required in a broad range of products such as smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, IoT- (Internet of Things) enabled devices, gaming, healthcare, and wearable computing. Atmel, together with our partners, are able to address these applications with highly-optimized solutions.
The Atmel Sensor Hub Solution leverages our MCU expertise, along with capacitive touch-enabled devices, and wireless capabilities. Combined with our industry-leading Atmel Studio development platform, Atmel Software Framework, and Xplained Pro development platform, the Sensor Hub Solution provides the technology platform to enable a superior user experience and product differentiation.
Atmel has partnered with the market-leading sensor manufacturers and sensor software providers to offer complete system solutions running on the Atmel platform. These partners offer innovative solutions and services on the Atmel platform that will reduce time-to -market and enhance the user experience.
