More Info
This combination dramatically reduces energy consumption while still enabling abundant application processing power to add greater capability and extended life to battery-operated devices. With unprecedented levels of energy efficiency, the Apollo2 can deliver always-on keyword detection and voice assistant integration, local voice control, complex sensor processing, gesture recognition and activity monitoring applications within the smallest power budget.
By combining ultra-low power sensor conversion electronics with the powerful Arm Cortex-M4 processor with Floating Point Unit, the Apollo2 Blue MCU enables complex sensor processing tasks to be completed with unprecedented battery life. Weeks, months, and years of battery life are achievable while doing complex context detection, gesture recognition, and activity monitoring.

Features Highlights 02

Ideal Solution

An ideal solution for battery-powered applications requiring sensor measurement and data analysis.

Integrated BLE5 Radio

Serves as an applications processor for one or more sensors and has a fully integrated BLE 5 radio.

ADC with Analog and Digital Outputs

Can measure analog sensor outputs using an integrated ultra-low power 10-bit ADC and digital sensor outputs using the integrated serial master ports.

Multiple Serial Protocol Support

A host processor can communicate with the Apollo2 MCU over its serial slave port using the I2C, SPI or I2S protocol.

Extended Battery Life

Enables months and years of battery life for products only achieving days or months of battery life today.

Greater Performance

Implementation of the Cortex-M4F core delivers both greater performance and much lower power than 8-bit, 16-bit, and other comparable 32-bit cores.

Uniquely Tuned ADC

ADC is uniquely tuned for minimum power with a configurable measurement mode that does not require MCU intervention.

Software Tool Suite

Supported by a complete suite of standard software development tools.
