Apollo 01

Apollo SoC EVB APOLLO512-KBR

The Apollo SoC is an ultra-low power, highly integrated system on a chip designed for battery-powered devices including wearable electronics, activity and fitness monitors, and wireless sensors. By combining ultra-low power sensor conversion electronics with the powerful Arm® Cortex®-M4F processor with the Floating Point Unit (FPU) options, the Apollo SoC enables complex sensor processing tasks to be completed with unprecedented battery life.

More Information

Weeks, months, and years of battery life are achievable while doing complex context detection, gesture recognition, and activity monitoring. The Apollo SoC takes full advantage of Ambiq’s patented Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology (SPOT®) Platform, setting a new industry benchmark in low power design.
The Apollo SoC also integrates up to 512KB of flash memory and 64KB of RAM to accommodate radio and sensor overhead while still leaving plenty of space for application code. This system on a chip also includes a serial master and UART port for communicating with radios and sensors including accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers.
