ARM talks sensors to servers demonstrations, ways to implement Internet of Things, using the mbed development boards with Arduino headers, the Arduino Shield with a low-power WiFi, doing custom sensor modules with temperature, microphone, ultra-sonic and motion sensors, stacking them up to do sensor nodes, then putting them around the booth to show a dashboard of things happening at the booth hosted on an AppliedMicro X-Gene server.
Greenwave Systems is a global Internet of Things (IoT) software and services company. Jim Hunter is the Chief Scientist and Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems. Greenwave is a profitable mid size start-up (215 people) with offices in Irvine, Copenhagen, Singapore and South Korea, that enables device manufacturers, service providers, utilities, retail channels and other enterprises to realize the promise of IoT through their devices and services. Jim was speaking at the IDTechEx IoT Applications conference, along with his colleague Nate Williams on the business challenges of IoT. In two separate sessions, they explained how Greenwave helps customers such as Verizon, TCP lighting, & E.ON Energy to design, build, manufacture, deliver, manage, maintain and support IoT devices - ranging from content to control, enabled by Greenwave's Axon software platform.
This is the lowest power consuming 32bit ARM Processor in the world based on ARM Cortex-M0+ for wearables (can be with basic touch) and for the sensor networks in the Internet of Things, can run up to more than a decade on a battery. The new Ultra low power Atmel | SMART SAM L21 based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ Core uses less than a third of the power consumption of competitive solutions and can run in active mode down to 35uA/MHz and retain 32kB of Flash and run a real time clock at 900nA. In this demo the SAM L21 is powered from the heat of a hand through a Peltier Element, this is enough energy to modulate a music file and transmit it with AM modulation at 1MHz to the nearby radio receiver. This demo shows that the SAM L21 is truly unique in supporting ultra-low power consumption in active mode without having to limit Flash or SRAM size, it is perfect for IoT and other battery powered applications where large embedded memories are needed.
Atmel has over 40,000 customers of its Microcontroller units - companies embedding MCUs to make devices powering the Internet of Things. For example, Arduino devices use Atmel MCUs. The Arduino WIFI shield includes a new Atmel MCU processor built from the ground up for WIFI running on batteries. Atmel is launching the lowest power 32bit ARM Cortex-M0+ processor (see their press release here) and Atmel is also launching the highest performance ARM Cortex-M7 Microcontroler (see press release here)
