Certified Safety Software Libraries Available for Atmel | SMART MCUs

- Safety Libraries for Atmel | SMART ARM Cortex-M0+ Based MCUs for Appliance Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 3, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —   Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a leader in microcontroller (MCU) and touch technology solutions, today announced additional ease-of-use capabilities for the ultra-low power Atmel | SMART ARM® Cortex®-M0+ based MCUs for household appliances, industrial and human interface device applications. Atmel continues to deliver rich features to its growing portfolio and is collaborating with Hitex and Pervasive Displays to release software libraries including the IEC 60730 Class B safety standard and e-paper drivers, respectively, to support Atmel | SMART MCUs.

The Atmel | SMART ARM Cortex-M0+ based family featuring a peripheral touch controller is currently designed into a wide variety of applications in tier 1 white goods manufacturers, and is ideal for a number of household appliances for touch-enabled button, wheel and slider capabilities. As a safety requirement for household appliances, the IEC 60730 safely standard—a requirement in Europe since 2007—was recently mandated in the US. Hitex has developed an IEC 60730 Class B library for Atmel | SMART MCUs. The library comes with excellent documentation, a formal certificate from VDE and can be downloaded from the Hitex website.

"Safety and time-to-market are two critical elements for appliance developers," said Andreas Eieland, Director of MCU Marketing, Atmel Corporation. "The implementation of capacitive touch sensing for the user interface and MCUs in next-generation appliances, along with the availability of VDE certified Class B software libraries, allows manufacturers to get their products quickly to market with all the safely requirements."

With power consumption being a primary driver for battery-powered retail and commercial markets, manufacturers are turning to e-paper for displaying pricing and information for their products. When paired with an ultra-low-power Atmel | SMART MCU and wireless transceiver, e-paper is the perfect interface for IoT applications running on coin cells or energy harvesting. To enable manufacturers to easily implement e-paper displays, Pervasive Displays has developed e-paper software drivers to support the Atmel | SMART SAM D and SAM L product families. The libraries are available on www.pervasivedisplays.com

"Manufacturers of next generation battery-powered applications are demanding lower power consumption and improved performance. E-paper addresses those needs with the lowest power display in the industry," said Charming Su, Technical Director, Pervasive Displays. "With the combination of the Atmel | SMART MCUs and our free software drivers, e-paper manufacturers can be confident that their implementation is straightforward and power efficient. Our collaboration with Atmel enables manufacturers to deliver ultra-low power, next-generation e-paper displays."
