Atmosic And QuickLogic Partner To Enable Always-On, Always-Listening Voice Interactivity In Audio And Sensor Processing Platform

CAMPBELL, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Atmosic™ Technologies, innovator of ultra-low-power wireless for the Internet of Things (IoT), and QuickLogic Corporation (Nasdaq: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power, multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP and Endpoint AI solutions, today announced a strategic partnership. This collaboration integrates Atmosic’s M2 & M3 Series lowest-power Bluetooth functionality and energy harvesting capabilities into QuickLogic’s EOS™ S3 Platform to reduce the power of interactive voice functionality and extend battery life, all while improving the overall customer experience. With Atmosic’s BLE technology, QuickLogic’s EOS S3 drops average system power consumption of smart, voice-controlled TV remote controllers by an impressive 41 percent compared to the leading competitive solutions.

“The demand for voice interactivity in IoT devices is continuing to grow, and the need for always-on, always-listening functionality makes low-power connectivity more important than ever,” said Brian Faith, president and CEO of QuickLogic. “We chose to partner with Atmosic because of its proven ability to radically reduce power consumption and battery dependence. Now, in partnership with Atmosic, we expect to dramatically increase the number of voice-enabled devices connecting to the IoT via our EOS S3 Platform.”

Built on the Bluetooth® 5 standards platform, Atmosic’s M2 Series leverages the company’s Lowest Power Radio and On-demand Wake-up technologies to enable 10 to 100 times lower power consumption than comparable IoT solutions on the market. The M3 Series’ energy harvesting functionality is a game changer that can extend battery life to enable forever battery life for IoT devices, making them “Forever Connected, Anywhere.”

“This partnership is significant as it represents continued market interest in Atmosic’s low power and energy harvesting capability in a voice-interactive IoT platform,” said David Su, CEO of Atmosic Technologies. “As the number of devices connecting to the IoT continues to grow, and the need for always-on voice interactivity increases, it’s now more important than ever to deploy a solution that enables providers, across many industries, to realize the impact of our vision for a battery-free world.”

QuickLogic’s EOS S3 Voice and Sensor Processing Platform is now available globally to developers worldwide. To learn more about Atmosic’s M2 and M3 Series, please visit: https://www.atmosic.com/products/.
