Atmel uses ANSYS simulation solutions to power the Internet of Things


04-03-2015

Atmel® Corporation is using engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS to model, analyse and optimise its broad Internet of Things (IoT) product portfolio, from scalable embedded microcontrollers and microprocessors to wireless connectivity gateways.

 

Power consumption, data security and communication standards compliance are critical design requirements for IoT applications. Striking an optimal balance among such concerns as power efficiency, antenna integration performance, security and cost is a key design challenge faced by engineers developing devices that enable the proliferation of IoT.

Atmel's industry-leading SmartConnect WINC1500 low-power WiFi 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11 b/g/n system-on-chip (SoC) and the latest ARM® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller (MCU) deliver extreme low power, compact size and comprehensive connectivity. The Atmel design teams around the world leveraged ANSYS® HFSS, ANSYS RedHawk and ANSYS Totem to design and validate these complex SoCs and platforms used across multiple IoT application segments. ANSYS simulation solutions help enable Atmel to meet stringent power/performance requirements, ensure reliable operations across a wide range of frequencies and deliver products with tight time-to-market constraints.

"As a leading provider of IoT solutions, we are committed to delivering the most comprehensive and highly integrated IoT solutions with world-class accuracy, performance, reliability and ease-of-use," said Marc Rougee, vice president of strategic initiatives, Atmel Corporation. "ANSYS engineering simulation tools give us the confidence that the design of our products will meet our customers' power and performance targets to enable next-generation secure and connected designs for IoT."

"IoT is creating tremendous growth opportunities for the entire electronics ecosystem, from semiconductor manufacturing to systems integration to applications development. ANSYS is excited to be a partner to the Atmel design teams as they develop innovative technologies that fuel machine-to-machine communication and the industrial Internet," said Aveek Sarkar, ANSYS vice president.
