Atmel Launches IoT Cloud Ecosystem Partner Program

Atmel Launches IoT Cloud Ecosystem Partner ProgramAtmel Corporation, a leading force in microcontroller (MCU) and touch solutions, has launched the Atmel Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Ecosystem Partner Program.

The new program enables developers using Atmel | SMART MCUs and Atmel SmartConnect wireless solutions to access Atmel’s ecosystem cloud partners for device management, data analytics, and visualization in order to experience an end-to-end IoT solution development ‘out of the box’.

“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,” noted the Atmel announcement. “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.”

“As a leading provider of IoT solutions, our goal is to provide a seamless end-to-end solution for our developers,” said Reza Kazerounian, SVP and GM of Microcontroller Business Unit, Atmel Corporation. “Launching this highly anticipated IoT ecosystem partner program, we are now one of the few suppliers that delivers solutions from the edge node to the cloud, along with full software support. We are excited to team with these unique cloud service companies and look forward to adding many more.”

Growth projections for IoT are substantial; industry analysts predict billions of devices will be connected by 2020.
