Key elements of the SmartEverything system board are the Atmel D21 ultra-low-power MCU, based on the 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ processor, and a Sigfox communications module for IoT connectivity. The Sigfox standard is energy efficient and wide-transmission-range technology that uses UNB (Ultra Narrow Band) based radio technology and offers low data-transfer speeds of 10 to 1000 bits per second.

However, very importantly, it is highly energy efficient and typically consumes only 50 μW compared to 5000 μW for cellular communication for example, meaning significantly enhanced battery life for mobile or portable IoT devices.

The SmartEverything board also includes an Atmel Crypto Authentication chipset; an 868 MHz antenna; a GPS module with embedded antenna for localisation applications, which supports the GPS, QZSS, and GLONASS standards, as well as being Galileo ready; a proximity and ambient-light sensor; a capacitive digital sensor for humidity and temperature measurement; a nine-axis 3D accelerometer, 3D gyroscope and 3D magnetometer combination sensor; a MEMS-based pressure sensor; an NTAG I2C NFC (Near Field Communication) module; and a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) transceiver module.
