SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2016) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power programmable sensor processing, display bridge and programmable logic solutions, today announced a strategic initiative to substantially broaden its market reach. The company will selectively license its proprietary ultra-low power programmable logic technology under the trade name ArcticPro™ eFPGA.
This embedded FPGA initiative is being launched in conjunction with a partnership agreement jointly announced today by GLOBALFOUNDRIES and QuickLogic. This partnership enables SoC design companies to acquire a license from QuickLogic to embed ArcticPro ultra-low power eFPGA technology in designs targeting GLOBALFOUNDRIES' new power and cost optimized 22nm FDSOI fabrication technology, which is scheduled for production in 2017. ArcticPro IP is also available now for designs targeting GLOBALFOUNDRIES' widely used 65nm and 40nm fabrication technologies. QuickLogic expects to announce additional foundry partners in the future.[Continue reading →]
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2016 -- JavaOne 2016, Booth #5212 – FreeWave Technologies, Inc. (www.freewave.com), a leader in industrial, secure Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) wireless networking solutions, today announced it has formed a partnership with Resilio, a provider of enterprise and industrial data transfer, BitTorrent-based technology (https://resilio.com/). The partnership will allow users to transfer large amounts of data from multiple nodes, with accelerated upload speeds and increased reliability by de-centralizing the data transfer process.
Earlier this year, FreeWave launched its new ZumLink radio series (go.freewave.com/zumlink), a flexible radio platform designed to support high data throughput speeds and third-party applications to enable a programmable edge network. Resilio Connect's highly scalable, highly dependable software utilizes BitTorrent technology as underlying protocol to transfer data in a third-party application on the ZumLink platform.[Continue reading →]
AUSTIN, Texas -- Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) has unveiled a wireless, multi-protocol addition to its popular Kinetis microcontroller (MCU) family, bringing the latest connectivity standards to an MCU platform that has played an essential role in shaping and enabling the Internet of Things (IoT) to date. A world leader in MCU innovation, Freescale introduces the Kinetis KW40Z wireless MCU family with support for Bluetooth Smart/Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and IEEE 802.15.4 applications.
The KW40Z wireless MCU integrates a 2.4 GHz multi-protocol radio that provides the ability to access one BLE network and one 802.15.4 network from a single device while achieving strong RF performance and low current consumption. The low-power radio runs in receive mode at 6.5mA with excellent co-existence characteristics, and provides years of operation on standard coin cell batteries. An integrated DC/DC converter configurable for buck or boost operation optimizes power consumption, and the MCU also incorporates a high precision DAC and a 16-bit ADC for highly accurate sensor measurement for wireless sensor networks.[Continue reading →]
