Fujitsu Electronics Europe (FEEU) is bringing Ambiq Micro’s Apollo 2 Platform to the European market. The new ultra-low-power MCU offers breakthrough power consumption of around 10µA/MHz, allowing wearables and IoT devices to experience double the battery life compared to the current generation of products. As the exclusive distributor of these products in Europe, FEEU offers customers both technical support and expertise on the challenges of low-power environments. General availability is planned for the second half of 2017.

The company’s ultra-low-power components are key enablers for many different technologies. The platform’s low processing power consumption and large memory size give OEMs the ability to develop industry-leading low-power devices.

“Our goal is to accelerate our customer’s innovation process by providing them with best-in-class products from all around the world”, says Axel Tripkewitz, president and managing director of FEEU. “Ambiq Micro’s Apollo 2 Platform will be another important cornerstone in our line card portfolio, helping our customers to build wearables and IoT devices with maximised performance and minimised power consumption.”
