AP Memory And Ambiq Partner


AP Memory Technology, supplier of ultra-low power and low pin count PSRAM (IoT RAM), and an emerging supplier of low-density LPDRAM, AI memory solutions for edge / IoT applications, together with Ambiq, a supplier of ultra-low power microcontrollers (MCU), System-on-Chips (SoC), and Real-time Clocks (RTC), have announced their partnership to enable richer experiences in next-generation battery-powered intelligent endpoint devices.

Building on the rich set of features and ultra-low power of Ambiq's Apollo4 platform, AP Memory's IoT RAM solutions are optimal for providing the additional memory needed to augment the ultimate endpoint experiences. AP Memory solutions offer low signal pin count (6 for QSPI, 11 for OPI), low power (standby from 20uA to 80uA, active from 3mA to 8mA), and high transfer rate options needed to meet the demanding power and space constraints of wearable and other battery-powered smart consumer devices. In recognition of the technical advantages of this leading-edge partnership, several large customer projects using the combination of AP Memory and Ambiq solutions are currently underway.

"The market is demanding richer experiences in intelligent endpoints, in ever more constrained form factors and stricter ultra-low power requirements. As a technology leader in ultra-low power chipsets, Ambiq is well-positioned for powering such devices. AP Memory is delighted to partner with Ambiq. Together, both companies are rising to the challenge of delivering to the market richer experiences in next-generation battery-powered intelligent endpoints." says Ivan Hong, Vice President and General Manager of IoT Business Unit of AP Memory.

"The demand for increased memory capacity in IoT endpoints is constantly growing given the need for more enhanced displays, AI/ML processing, complex audio use cases, and highly integrated sensor fusion applications. The partnership with AP Memory allows customers to take advantage of the industry-leading power consumption and features of the Apollo4 platform and address the expansive needs of those new application areas yet still maintaining a small physical form factor. The low-power products from AP Memory give our customers the flexibility to future-proof their product lines by offering more memory with longer battery life," says Dan Cermak. Vice President of Architecture and Product Planning at Ambiq.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
