Atmel uses ANSYS simulation solutions to power the IoT

Atmel | Bits & Pieces

IC and system simulation tools are enabling a power-efficient, cost-optimized and reliable Internet of Things ecosystem. 

Atmel is currently using engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS to model, analyze and optimize our broad Internet of Things (IoT) product portfolio from scalable embedded MCUs and MPUs to wireless connectivity gateways.


Power consumption, data security and communication standards compliance are critical design requirements for connected applications. Striking an optimal balance among such concerns as power efficiency, antenna integration performance, security and cost is a key design challenge faced by engineers developing devices that are paving the way for the proliferation of IoT.

The industry-leading SmartConnect WINC1500 lEEE 802.11 b/g/n IoT network controller SoC along with the latest family of Atmel | SMART ARM Cortex-M0+ MCUs deliver extreme low-power, compact size and comprehensive connectivity. The Atmel design team leveraged ANSYS HFSS, ANSYS RedHawk and ANSYS Totem to design and validate these complex SoCs and platforms used across multiple IoT application segments. ANSYS simulation solutions help enable the company to…
