Since 1997, MediaTek has been a pioneering fabless semiconductor company and a market leader in cutting-edge systems-on-chip (SoC) for mobile devices, wireless networking, HDTV, DVD and Blu-ray. Their tightly-integrated, innovative chip designs help manufacturers optimize supply chains, reduce the development time of new products, and extend a competitive edge in both developing and mature markets around the world. Through MediaTek Labs, the company is also building a developer hub that will support device creation, application development, and services for the Internet of Things
Today, microcontrollers are just about everywhere, powering an expansive array of digital devices. Many are calling this the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), a highly intelligent, connected world where Internet-enabled devices will outnumber people. Atmel is pleased to be at the heart of this movement, developing innovative technologies that fuel machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and the Industrial Internet. Atmel power the edge nodes that form the link between individual devices and the gateways that connect to the cloud. They supply makers and designers with embedding processing and connectivity to sensors, security and software, and tie it all together with a rich ecosystem of design tools and development partners.
Whilst still in its infancy, the Internet of Things
(IoT) is in part evolving by using Bluetooth
Smart as an underpinning technology. Bluetooth
Smart is rapidly being adopted for short-range wireless connectivity between compact, coin cell-powered accessories using RF sensors and smartphone ‘hubs’ supporting associated software applications. The ARM mbed initiative is a collaborative industry project that plans to nurture the IoT. The initiative delivers tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks for the rapid development of ARM-based devices.
The collaboration between Nordic Semiconductor and ARM has resulted in Nordic’s nRF51822 System-on-Chip (SoC) which combines a Bluetooth
v4.1-compliant 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio with an ARM Cortex-M0 CPU core on a single chip optimized for ultra-low power operation. The nRF51822 Series offers developers the ideal platform for designing the wirelessly-connected sensors that will help turn the IoT from a technological concept into reality as the mechanisms to transfer IP data from sensor nodes begin to appear.
As microprocessors get ever smaller and more power efficient, smart devices will penetrate our lives like never before. MediaTek is on the forefront of creating platforms for intelligent Wearables
, watches, trackers, home and office appliances, connected facilities, utilities and more. This will allow a revolution of connected devices, giving people and business’ the ability to track, manage and control their environments in a way that they never before had access to, allowing better understanding to improve their lives via better usage, performance and power efficiency.
