Atmel Expands World-class Wireless Portfolio With 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi SoCs and Modules

- Extending Atmel's Broad Wireless Portfolio, New Wi-Fi SoC and Module Solutions Enable Designers More Connectivity Options for IoT, Consumer and Industrial Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 22, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —   Atmel Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a global leader in microcontroller (MCU) and touch solutions, today announced the company has expanded its leading SmartConnect wireless portfolio with two new turn-key system-on-chips (SoCs) and four new modules featuring these SoCs. Atmel's WILC1000 and WINC1500 SoCs extend its already broad portfolio of wireless connectivity options with the latest 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi capability, seamlessly integrating Newport Media's (NMI) solutions in just two months. Atmel acquired NMI in July 2014.

Both wireless solutions are compatible to existing Atmel MCU solutions and can connect to any Atmel AVR® or Atmel | SMART MCUs. The new WINC1500 is an IEEE 802.11b/g/n IoT network controller, while the WILC1000 is an IEEE 802.11b/g/n IoT link controller.

Expanding on Atmel's Wi-Fi offering, the WILC1000 and WINC1500 are SoC solutions optimized for battery-powered IoT applications. These wireless SoCs feature fully integrated power amplifiers for the industry's best communication range, without compromising cost or performance. Both the WILC1000 and WINC1500 are add-on solutions which can connect to any Atmel MCU or eMPU targeting a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT), consumer and industrial applications. Both products are available either as fully-certified modules ready for production to accelerate a designer's time-to-market or as discrete SoCs for customers requiring the highest design flexibility.

"Atmel is excited to offer one of the broadest portfolios of differentiated wireless MCU solutions in the industry to further enable more smart, connected devices in the era of the Internet of Things," said Kaivan Karimi, vice president of wireless solutions at Atmel. "Connected devices that were once a concept are becoming a reality because of innovations that are allowing devices to be smaller, easier to use, faster and more powerful—but are lower in power and optimized for battery operations. When these products are paired with Atmel's broad portfolio of products, along with comprehensive technologies, OEMs and small developers are allowed to streamline the production of the next wave of IoT devices."

Atmel's SmartConnect family can be connected to any ultra-low power MCUs or eMPUs and wireless connectivity solutions into an easy, turnkey IoT solution. SmartConnect Wi-Fi solutions enable Wi-Fi internet connectivity using ultra-low power for IoT edge/sensing nodes markets, reducing overall bill of materials. SmartConnect solutions accelerate development time for cost-effective, battery-operated applications in the residential, healthcare, industrial, smart energy and wearable markets.

The WILC1000 and WINC1500 provide multiple peripheral interfaces including UART, SPI, SDIO and I2C. The only external clock source needed is a high-speed crystal or oscillator with a wide variety of reference clock frequencies supported (between 12 – 50 MHz) and are IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, RF, Baseband, MAC certified.

Availability

The WILC1000 is available now as a chip and three different modules.

The WINC1500 is available now as a chip and a module, with an evaluation kit, featuring Atmel's SAMD21 MCU.
