DigiKey signs global partnership with Ambiq

The distributor stocks Ambiq’s low power ICs, including the latest SoC, the Apollo4 Blue Plus which combines Bluetooth Low Energy, graphics and audio for always-connected IoT endpoints. It is claimed to have one of the lowest dynamic powers for microcontrollers currently available making it suitable for wearables and battery-operated smart devices.

The Apollo4 Blue Plus is a 4th generation system processor solution built upon Ambiq's proprietary Subthreshold Power-Optimized Technology (SPOT) platform. The hardware and software solution enables current and future battery-powered endpoint devices to achieve a higher level of intelligence without sacrificing battery life, says the company.

It has sufficient compute and storage to handle complex AI algorithms and neural networks, always-on voice recognition, and display capability for smooth graphics.

“DigiKey is pleased to add Ambiq to our core supplier line card,” said David Stein, vice president, semiconductors at DigiKey. He believes that Ambiq has raised the bar with this new MCU and SoC. “We’re excited to support designers, engineers and builders globally as they work with these innovative solutions to accelerate progress,” he says.
