Design win; Atmel's ARM & AVR cores in TomTom Spark GPS fitness watches

November 08, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Atmel has disclosed that the TomTom Spark GPS fitness watch includes the Atmel | SMART ARM Cortex M7-based MCU and the tinyAVR44A MCU.

TomTom Spark also uses Atmel’s QTouch library software to control the touch interface in the 8-bit tinyAVR MCU. The combination of these ultra-low-power MCUs extends the battery life of the TomTom Spark to up to 10 hours in GPS mode.
