Thingsquare showcases Atmel-powered IoT tech

Thingsquare is currently showcasing various Internet of Things (IoT) applications at Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany.

A number of Thingsquare’s demonstrations are powered by Atmel’s recently launched SAM R21 Xplained PRO evaluation board – illustrating the seamless integration of Thingsquare’s software stack with Atmel’s new SAM R21 ultra-low power wireless microcontroller (MCU).

As Atmel Product Marketing Director Magnus Pedersen notes, the SAM R21 allows Atmel’s customers to easily develop connected lighting, smart metering and wireless sensor network systems based on true Internet-connectivity and open standards such as IPv6 and 6lowpan.

“Our customers are demanding complete, easy-to-use IoT solutions that can quickly bring a full system to market,” said Pedersen.


“Our cooperation with Thingsquare is an example of that, with a web-based toolchain and open source firmware to offer our customers a fully integrated hardware and software solution for various IoT applications.”

Thingsquare CEO Adam Dunkels expressed similar sentiments.

“The addition of Atmel’s hardware solutions provides our customers additional options,” he said. “Atmel’s new and innovative SAM R21 wireless microcontroller is an important step forward in the emerging IoT space.”

Interested in learning more? The SAM R21 device combined with the Thingsquare open source firmware is currently available at and as a separate delivery via Atmel’s Studio 6 Gallery.
