Many of the advanced context-aware, environment-aware, or location-aware applications rely on growing number of ‘always-on’ sensors. The application and demands for extremely low-power ‘always-on’ sensor technology is going to continue to increase in future.
Indea’s family of SoCs delivers one of industry’s lowest power solution for always-on sensing. It uses a patented IP, called Policy Manager/Task Processing Unit to sense and monitor data continuously from a variety of sensors while keeping the main CPU in deep sleep state. Once configured, the Policy Manager/ Task Processing Unit handles sensing, monitoring and conditioning of sensor data allowing the main CPU to reside in lowest power state. Combined with HCA, the Policy Manager/ Task Processing Unit delivers extreme low power continuous sensing solution enabling a new level of IoT and Automotive “ambient intelligence”.
