Chip Brings IoT Computing To The Edge

S3 Semiconductors’ single-chip SmartEdge Platform promises users access to cost-optimized, custom single-chip solutions that put performance right at the edge of the IoT. Processing at the Edge supposedly accelerates data analytics at the source and reduces cloud-based processing. ASICs based on the SmartEdge Platform allegedly provide an advantage over multi electronic component solutions by delivering higher performance and reduced system power through increased integration, while also lowering the total BOM cost.

 

According industry research, more than half of the data usage in IoT is currently processed at the edge by autonomous devices requiring sensor analog front ends coupled to data converters and microcontrollers running embedded software, with security and some form of wired or wireless communications interface. Bringing these functions together, often with the need for local calibration and low-latency real-time control is a challenge.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2018 Hits Silicon Valley June 26-28!

Join thousands of engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, including AI, Autonomous Vehicles, IoT, and Medical, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

The SmartEdge Platform provides a cost-effective way to integrate sensing, calibrating, controlling and communication functions into a single ASIC. This level of integration delivers higher overall performance, particularly when moving between the analog and digital domains, while also bringing down the system power budget. For autonomous edge devices expected to operate for many years from a single battery, a SmartEdge solution will provide significant benefits.
