Atmel and Hillcrest Labs team up on sensor hubs

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmel and Hillcrest Labs recently announced the expansion of their collaboration in the context of Atmel's Partner Program to deliver turn-key sensor hub solutions. As we've previously discussed on Bits & Pieces, sensor hubs are increasingly being used to offload sensor management from a main processor.

Essentially, the combination of Hillcrest's SH-1 sensor hub software and Atmel's ultra-low power microcontrollers provides 'always on' features such as context awareness and gesture recognition, all while minimizing system power consumption.

Hillcrest has also debuted a SH-1 sensor hub product designed to efficiently manage inertial, magnetic and environmental sensors using Atmel's versatile SAM D20 ARM-powered Cortex M0+ based microcontroller (MCU), with the SH-1 sensor hub targeted at smartphones, tablets, wearable electronic devices and the Internet of Things (Iot).
