Processing at the edge is a rapidly evolving trend that accelerates data analytics at the source and reduces cloud-based processing, delivering more responsive decision making. In pursuit of this, S3 Semiconductors has unveiled its SmartEdgeTM Platform, that gives its customers access to cost-optimized, custom single-chip solutions that put performance right at the edge of the IoT.
ASICs based on the SmartEdge Platform provide a competitive advantage over multi-electronic component solutions by delivering higher performance and reduced system power through increased integration, while also lowering the total BoM cost.
The SmartEdge Platform provides a uniquely cost-effective way to integrate sensing, calibrating, controlling and communication functions into a single ASIC.
Due to this level of integration, the platform delivers higher overall performance, particularly when moving between the analog and digital domains, while also bringing down the system power budget.
In addition, for autonomous edge devices expected to operate for many years from a single battery, a SmartEdge solution will provide significant benefits, the company noted.
“We understand the challenges of developing IoT edge devices that operate within a performance window and power budget,” said Darren Hobbs, Director of Marketing and Strategy, S3 Semiconductors. “The SmartEdge Platform enables OEMs to create an optimized single-chip solution that meets their specific requirements while offering significant engineering and commercial advantages over existing, non-optimal solutions.”
The SmartEdge Platform is offered with full design support. More information: www.s3semi.com/smartedge
