QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, display bridge and programmable logic solutions, announced that Janyun, a developer of cloud-based applications, wearable and IoT products has selected the company’s EOS™ S3 Sensor Processing Platform for its new voice enabled GPS smartwatch.
Janyun design engineers leveraged the System on a Chip (SoC) capabilities of the EOS S3 platform to optimize power consumption and features while minimizing chip count and cost. The core uses for the EOS S3 solution in this design include:
- The EOS S3 incorporates an ARM® Cortex M4F as the device’s host processor.
- Janyun further optimized power consumption by using the EOS S3 patent pending Flexible Fusion Engine (FFE) to process Janyun’s proprietary algorithms at the lowest possible power.
- The EOS S3 hardware integrated Sensory, Inc. Ultra-Low Power Sound Detection (LPSD) and microphone interface are used to deliver the voice interface at the lowest possible power consumption.
- EOS S3 processor resources are also used for local on-device voice processing with Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ technology, which saves power and dramatically shortens the latency to voice triggers and commands by avoiding the need to access cloud resources.
- The embedded FPGA (eFPGA) in the EOS S3 platform is programmed specifically for Janyun as the display driver and GPS interface for the new voice enabled GPS smartwatch.
“I’m very pleased with how effectively Janyun’s design team leveraged the SoC resources and flexibility of our EOS S3 solution to optimize their first ODM design with QuickLogic for power consumption, performance and cost,” said Brian Faith, president and CEO of QuickLogic. “We look forward to working closely with Janyun as it moves its new voice enabled GPS smartwatch to production later this year, and to supporting Janyun’s ongoing development of new wearable and IoT products.”
“The QuickLogic EOS S3 SoC is an ideal solution for our wearable and IoT ODM designs,” said Saicheng Tang, CEO of Janyun. “The EOS S3 platform provides us with a single chip, multi-core solution that optimizes our designs for cost, ultra-low power consumption, and design flexibility that enables us to support multiple end customer use cases with a single platform. We view these capabilities as essential to our success in the development of our ODM business model.”
QuickLogic’s EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC and design tools are available now.
