Ambiq Micro Releases Bluetooth 5 Low Energy Microcrontrollers
Ambiq Micro, a provider of ultra-low-power solutions, has announced the release of its Apollo Blue microcontroller family. This new product line integrates Bluetooth 5 Low Energy radio connectivity with Ambiq Micro's patented Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology (SPOT) architecture.
Apollo Blue microcontrollers integrate an energy-efficient Bluetooth 5 Low Energy radio with improved communication features. The Apollo Blue family of products includes a second core dedicated to running the Bluetooth stack. This architecture allows the ARM Cortex-M4F main processor to focus on managing applications like voice control, keyword detection and sensor processing.
"Customers have been delighted to use Ambiq Micro's Real-Time-Clock and Microcontroller products to drive new levels of power efficiency in their designs," said Aaron Grassian, Ambiq Micro's VP of marketing and business development, in a prepared statement. "We are excited to introduce the Apollo Blue family of products with integrated Bluetooth low energy to offer our customers even more choices to develop always-on, always-aware, and always-connected products without sacrificing battery life."
The first product in the Blue family is Ambiq Micro's Apollo2 Blue, which is in full production and is available now. Ambiq demonstrated SPOT-enabled ultra-low-power Apollo Blue products at the recent Consumer Electronics Show 2018 (CES) event in Las Vegas.
