Atmel Corporation has signed an agreement with Sensinode to license 6LoWPAN software solutions, enabling the development of smart, connected wireless products that help make up The Internet of Things.

The agreement allows Sensinode to license its 6LoWPAN stack and router solutions, the NanoStack2.0 and NanoRouter 3.0, to be used Atmel's ultra-low-power wireless hardware platforms for developing power-efficient IPv6-based embedded wireless products.

"Teaming with Sensinode is another key step Atmel has taken to ensure designers can quickly bring their smart, connected devices faster to market," said Magnus Pedersen, Director of Wireless Solutions, Atmel Corporation. "With this license agreement, designers now have all the necessary hardware and software elements at their fingertips to build products that require connectivity for The Internet of Things. We are excited to team with Sensinode."

Sensinode's NanoStack 2.0 will be used with Atmel's ATmega256RFR2 wireless MCU, while the NanoRouter 3.0 will support Atmel's SAM4E Cortex-M4 flash-based MCU and AT86RF231 or AT86RF233 ultra low power IEEE 802.15.4 RF transceivers.

"The Internet of Things is a rapidly growing market and we are excited to team with a leading microcontroller company like Atmel to enable more designers to build smart, connected devices," said Adam Gould, CEO for Sensinode Ltd. "With Atmel's state-of-the-art chipsets running Sensinode NanoStack and NanoRouter software, especially combined with Sensinode's NanoServiceapplication and management platform, our customers can get to market very quickly with advanced, robust solutions. We look forward to an ongoing collaboration with Atmel."
