The current generation of smartphones typically implements sensor fusion with software running on a microcontroller/microprocessor or with application specific standard products (ASSPs).These solutions usually consume more power, and ASSPs do not currently have the flexibility required to utilize the new algorithms that are being developed for context awareness, the company noted.
According to the company, the new platform enables the offloading of real-time management and computing of sensor data from the smartphone application processor. The platform will enable the development of applications, such as health and fitness monitoring, indoor navigation, consumer behavior analysis, targeted advertising, real-time sports data collection, augmented reality.
The ArcticLink 3 S1 platform integrates a set of
The integrated flexible fusion engine (FFE) is designed to process, filter and interpret sensor data prior to sending to the host application processor. The micro-code running on the FFE can be programmed to implement a host of complex arithmetic functions associated with sensor fusion, background sensor calibration and context change algorithms.
The S1 platform is based on
"Designers of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices have been asking for a sensor hub solution that can provide the computing power necessary at 1% of system power, and with our new ArcticLink 3 S1 Sensor Hub solution platform we have answered their requests," said
