Ambiq Micro released the Apollo3 Blue Wireless SoC with integrated Bluetooth low energy (BLE5), updated peripherals, additional memory, an advanced DMA engine & TurboSPOT. This new product extends the capabilities of Ambiq Micro’s Apollo Blue family and is available now for battery and energy harvesting powered IoT, hearable, wearable & voice-activated edge devices.
The Apollo3 Blue’s TurboSPOTTM brings groundbreaking levels of energy efficiency to mobile, battery-powered devices by increasing the computational capabilities of the ARM Cortex M4F core to 96MHz while lowering the active power consumption to <6uA/MHz. An integrated DMA engine combined with the extra computing bandwidth gives designers the flexibility to add more complex sensor processing algorithms to their energy-sensitive products without sacrificing quality or battery life.
The Apollo3 Blue also provides a dedicated second core for the ultra-low power BLE5 connectivity platform providing superior RF throughput and leaving plenty of resources available for user applications. The radio performance and interoperability has already been proven to be reliable and robust in real-world consumer products which are currently shipping in massive volume.
