QuickLogic Corp., a provider of ultra-low-power programmable customer specific standard products (CSSPs), has released its S1 Wearables Sensor Hub, an ultra-low-power, context-aware sensor hub aimed at next-generation wearable applications. The out-of-the-box solution speeds time-to-market for OEMs developing wearable applications, particularly in the health and fitness space, noted the company.

The S1 Wearables Sensor Hub is the latest Catalog CSSP using the company's ArcticLink 3 S1 silicon platform, and is extensible to QuickLogic's roadmap of future sensor hub silicon platforms.

The ArcticLink 3 S1 supports Android 4.4 (KitKat) and Thread X Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) and uses less than 250mW of active power.

Native support of a variety of popular contexts and gestures provides OEMs with the flexibility to develop smarter, more accurate and more intuitive fitness and health applications for a wide range of activities. Additionally, the S1 Wearables Sensor Hub contains QuickLogic's unique system timing and control implementation to accommodate the low-power architectures of wearable devices. Offloading the real-time, always-on computation to QuickLogic's sensor hub enables reduced overall system power, thus extending battery life.

The ultra-low-power S1 Wearables Sensor Hub catalog CSSP is available. The ArcticLink 3 S1 sensor hub platform, which is processor, sensor and algorithm agnostic, is also available for OEMs to customise via QuickLogic's previously announced integrated development environment (IDE).
