Atmel is bidding auf wiedersehen to Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany.
During the show, Atmel announced and showcased a number of new products to drive smart, connected devices in the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) including:
- Newark’s latest ARM-based Atmel SAMA5D3 Xplained evaluation kit
- Fresh lineup of AVR devices
- Studio 6.2
- Upgraded Xplained Mini dev kit
- Smart Connect series (SmartConnect Wi-Fi, SmartConnect ZigBee SAM R21 )
Other notable demos included Ivee Sleek Wi-Fi, a voice-activated assistance for the home that helps manage and control connected devices without hands; a finger print, voice-search, secure Bluetooth / USB drive that displays passwords; a tiny automatic camera and app that boasts a searchable and shareable photographic memory, as well as a 5mm x 5mm Cortex-A5 System on Module card.
A polyphase smart e-metering board based on a dual ARM Cortex-M4 core system-on-chip with an integrated metrology AFE was also on display in the booth, along with Atmel’s advanced AvantCar demo, a next-gen automotive center console concept with curved touchscreens that illustrated the combined use of Atmel’s XSense, maXTouch, QTouch and 8-bit AVR MCU technologies.
In addition, Atmel’s low-power MCU Expert Bob Martin presented “Differentiating and Optimizing for Static and Active Microcontroller Modes” during the hands-on workshop: “Applying Optimizing Techniques for Ultra-low Power Microcontrollers” (Class 07) and talked Hexbug hacking in the Atmel booth.
Last, but certainly not least, Atmel announced the winners of its AVR Hero Design contest at the show.
We’ll see you next year in 2015!
