New ultra-low power IoT reference platform for next generation of wearables
Design & Manufacture
EnSilica and sureCore have announced that EnSilica has developed sureCore’s new, ultra-low power IoT reference platform targeted principally at the development of the next generation of wearable consumer and medical applications.
With proven expertise in low power SoC design for battery powered applications, the company’s experienced silicon team is able to deliver a complete, turn-key service covering complex digital and analog/RF technologies for both ASICs and SoCs down to 28nm. The service extends from system architecting and design specification through development and implementation to the supply of production silicon. It also offers point services within the whole systems design, development and IC supply cycle. Additionally, it maintains in-depth partnership with all the major silicon foundries.
“With proven experience of delivering low power design services, EnSilica was a natural choice for the implementation of our new ultra-low power IoT reference platform,” said Eric Gunn, COO of sureCore. “With a demonstrable understanding of how near threshold design can meet customer expectations for battery powered applications, we knew that EnSilica would be able to proceed quickly to successful tape-out. EnSilica’s technical appreciation of our technology, as well as deep understanding of TSMC’s processes, has ensured a painless route to tape-out.”
“We are pleased to be extending our relationship with sureCore on the implementation of its new ultra-low power IoT reference platform,” said Ian Lankshear, CEO of EnSilica. “Its EverOn and PowerMiser SRAM IPs are proving a game-changer when it comes to providing SoC developers with ultra-low power, area-efficient memories and its new, ultra-low power IoT reference platform looks set to make the same impact on the next generation of wearable consumer and medical applications.”
