Atmel and Wasion Group will collaborate on product developments based on the Atmel ATPL210, ATPL220 and SAM4SP32A, claimed as the world's first single-chip PRIME compliant SoC solution based on an ARM Cortex-M4 processor-based microcontroller (MCU) core with 2MB flash memory, supported by Atmel Studio 6 integrated development platform (IDP).

"Working with a leading supplier like Atmel who has in-depth understanding of smart metering technologies will enable us to bring electricity meter and data concentrator solutions to market more rapidly," said Wang Xuexin, GM of overseas division, Wasion Group. "Through our collaboration, we will be able to accelerate development, field testing and roll-out of smart metering solutions."

"We greatly appreciate Wasion Group's decision to select Atmel as their partner and believe our mutual efforts will ultimately help utilities achieve their energy and environmental policy goals," said Kourosh Boutorabi, sr. director of smart energy, Atmel. "China is the fastest growing market for smart meters with some of the most demanding requirements and specifications.
