Atmel Corp. has teamed up with ARM for the mbed device platform aimed at the Internet of Things (IoT). The collaboration extends the ecosystem support for developers using Atmel's line of secure, low-power and cost-effective wireless connectivity solutions, specifically the Atmel SmartConnect WiFi and 802.15.4-compliant solutions, the companies noted. It also allows IoT developers for smart wearables, connected appliances, home automation systems and more bring their products to market faster.

Built around open standards, the ARM mbed platform combines Internet protocols, security and standards-based manageability into one integrated system, and gathers silicon, cloud and device partners in one community. Atmel | SMART SAMR21 and WINC1500 customers can access the mbed OS software platform, which includes command-line tools, a low-power HAL, as well as advanced networking protocols such as 6LoWPAN and Thread to significantly accelerate IoT development.

"The ARM mbed IoT Device Platform simplifies the development and deployment of next-generation IoT devices and cloud services," said Krisztian Flautner, GM, IoT business, ARM. "The integration of Atmel's wireless technology with the mbed platform allows IoT developers to rapidly create devices that communicate across a mesh network with cloud services. This will drive the acceleration of the IoT in consumers and industrial markets."

"As a leader in the IoT market, Atmel is committed to enabling developers of all levels the opportunity to bring their IoT devices quickly to market," said Steve Pancoast, VP of software applications, tools and development at Atmel. "In this fragmented market place, we are leading the charge to bring easy-to-use hardware, software, development tools and platform solutions to market and enabling our IoT developers more time to focus on critical features in their design. By partnering with ARM on their mbed platform, we've taken another step towards making the 50 billion devices for the IoT market a reality."
