Atmel Corporation has introduced Atmel | SMART, a new family of ARM-based microcontrollers. The company has also expanded its SMART portfolio with SmartConnect SAM W23 modules, enabling Wi-Fi connectivity and low power technology for IoT applications.

Atmel | SMART ARM-based microcontrollers 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. These MCUs combine powerful 32bit ARM cores with 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 Wi-Fi connectivity even with limited experience with IEEE802.11, RTOS, IP Stack, or RF. These modules are based on Atmel's Wi-Fi SoC combined with Atmel's ARM CortexM0+ based microcontroller 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 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 now. The SmartConnect library is a turnkey Software Framework available in Atmel Studio that removes the need to understand the Wi-Fi 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 stand-alone system or as an add-on solution to enable Wi-Fi connectivity in an existing design.
