Austin, TX and Hsinchu, Taiwan – July 2, 2019 – Ambiq Micro and TSMC (TWSE:2330, NYSE: TSM) today announced that Ambiq’s Apollo3 Blue wireless SoC, built on TSMC’s 40 nanometer ultra-low power (40ULP) process, has achieved world-leading power consumption performance. Leveraging both Ambiq’s Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology (SPOT™) platform and TSMC’s 40ULP low operating power (low-Vdd) technology, the Apollo3 Blue with TurboSPOTTM sets a new standard in energy efficiency for battery-powered devices by increasing the computational capabilities of the ARM Cortex M4F core to 96MHz while lowering the active power consumption to less than six microamperes per megahertz (6uA/MHz). The Apollo3 Blue’s outstanding performance has enabled Ambiq to reach new markets including battery-powered smart home devices and always-on, voice-enabled applications like remote controls and hearables………….
