Atmel Emphasizes Internet of Things Ecosystem
Atmel Corporation, a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, launched the Atmel Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Ecosystem Partner Program.
The new program enables developers using Atmel “SMART MCU” and Atmel “SmartConnect” wireless solutions access to Atmel’s ecosystem partners for device management, data analytics, and visualization.
With the increasing need to collect, visualize and analyze data from IoT edge nodes and to manage the associated services, cloud connectivity is becoming an essential element for product development, Atmel argues.
Device management is also an important aspect of cloud services as more devices are performing functions through remote management, such as a connected thermostat that is programmed remotely and sends climate information back to the user’s remote device reducing overall power consumption while providing a better user experience.
