Powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, Samsung’s Galaxy Note II runs on Android’s 4.1 operating system (also known as Jelly Bean), and offers a 5.5-inch, high-definition super AMOLED display with 1,280 x 720 resolution.

According to Sueng-jun Park, senior engineer, Samsung Electronics, Atmel’s sensor hub solution offers a visibly superior experience while running motion-related applications.

The Galaxy Note II includes several sensors that detect motion, including an accelerometer, RGB light, digital compass, proximity, gyro and barometer, and are ideal for a range of applications including gaming, navigation and virtual reality. Atmel’s AVR UC3L sensor hub solution combines the input from these multiple sensors to provide real-time direction, orientation and inclination data to deliver superior performance, in addition to lower power consumption to achieve longer battery life.

“Samsung continues to bring some of the most innovative products to the market with a variety of new features and applications that require motion sensing,” said Peter Jones, vice president and general manager for microcontroller and touch business units, Atmel Corporation.

“Atmel’s sensor hub solution enables Galaxy Note II users the ability to enjoy accurate and quick response time required for applications ranging from gaming to navigation, virtual reality and more. We also look forward to a strong ongoing collaboration with Samsung,” Jones added.
