Ambiq Micro’s Subthreshold Power-Optimized Technology (SPOT) Platform Features CEVA’s Bluetooth Low Energy IP

March 10, 2020 Perry Cohen

CEVA announced Ambiq Micro has licensed CEVA’s RivieraWaves Bluetooth low energy IP for use in its next-generation Subthreshold Power-Optimized Technology (SPOT) platforms integrating Bluetooth connectivity.

CEVA’s Bluetooth low energy (BLE) IP is already powering Ambiq Micro’s Apollo3 Blue Family Wireless System-on-Chip (SoC) that features applications requiring intelligence from wearables to animal trackers.

With ideal power numbers in both active and sleep modes, along with a high-performance processing engine, Apollo3 Blue devices provide the most efficient processing solutions on the market, according to the company.

Apollo3 Blue products integrate a Bluetooth 5 low-energy radio combined with improved communication features to enable always-connected, ultra-low power designs. At the core of all Apollo3 products is Ambiq Micro’s Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology (SPOT).

SPOT reduces energy consumption while still enabling abundant application processing power to add capability and extended life to battery-operated devices, including hearables, wearables, IoT endpoint devices, and voice-controlled applications.
