Atmel and Movea Join Forces for Always-on Ultra-low Power Sensor Hubs to be Showcased at Mobile World Congress

Movea’s SmartMotion technology now supports Atmel’s high performance processors for ultra-low power intelligence, paving the way for the future of smart, connected devices


WEBWIRE – Monday, February 24, 2014

Barcelona, Feb. 24, 2014 - Atmel®, a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, and Movea, a leader in motion processing and data fusion for consumer electronics, today announced that Movea’s SmartMotion technology has been ported to the Atmel SAMG53. The SAMG53 solution is part of Atmel’s popular Cortex-M4-based family optimized for high-performance, low-power applications.

Targeting mobile consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets, Movea’s SmartMotion technology enhances the user experience by delivering compelling motion driven applications and services including activity monitoring, context awareness, pedestrian dead-reckoning and mobile gestures turning sensor data into personal, meaningful information. The technology will be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Feb. 24-27, 2014 in Movea’s meeting room 7P2MR, in Hall 7.

“Sensor hub architectures enabling always-on capabilities while maintaining ultra-low power consumption have become vital to deliver the context aware applications consumers are asking for,” said Sam Guilaumé, CEO of Movea. “Adding Atmel to our supported platforms allows industry OEMs to benefit from leading solutions to quickly and easily deploy the next generation of smart apps while offloading the main application processor; saving battery life, which is so precious to mobile users.”

“The combination of our ultra-low power sensor hub microcontroller with Movea’s SmartMotion technology optimized for mobile devices and wearables meets the constraints of low power, high accuracy and flexibility,” added Adrian Woolley, director of strategy, microcontroller business unit, Atmel Corporation. “This market-leading solution will feed the need for advanced capabilities and extended battery. We’re excited to work with industry-leading companies such as Movea to address this market opportunity.”
