Xenergic’s SRAM for next generation of ultra-low power products

Xenergic was selected by Bosch Sensortec to provide ultra-low power SRAM for their sensing  solutions based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Bosch Sensortec GmbH, a fully owned  subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH, develops and markets a wide portfolio of microelectromechanical  systems (MEMS) sensors and solutions tailored for smartphones, tablets, wearables and hearables,  AR/VR devices, drones, robots, smart home and IoT (Internet of Things) applications. 

Xenergic’s memory solution will enable Bosch Sensortec to add more features and significantly  extend the battery lifetime in their products. Richer set of functionalities such as integrated AI/ML  features are demanded in next generation of sensor market. However, power is a limiting factor for  realization of these functionalities.  

On-chip memories are among the largest blocks in digital integrated circuits. On average, the area  share is around 70% and their power share is often more than 50%. This is a major hurdle for  implementing richer functionalities and extending the battery lifetime in low-power MEMS and  system on chips (SoC).  

Xenergic provides ultra-low power SRAM IP with its MemoryTailorTM. The MemoryTailorTM, provides  Bosch Sensortec with a unique memory solution, optimized for each circuit’s specific design  requirements such as voltage, speed and area constraints.  

“Working with Bosch Sensortec and their very skilled team in low power design is a privilege and  great experience. Combined, our technologies redefine the power boundaries in sensor design” says  Babak Mohammadi, CEO of Xenergic. 

Xenergic AB, based in Lund, Sweden, is offering on-chip memory (SRAM) solutions with a  revolutionizing low power consumption for digital integrated circuits such as AI/ML applications,  MEMS products, image sensors, low power Bluetooth, IoT modems and edge processors. The  product portfolio consists of single and dual rail SRAM with single port, two port and dual port  configurations. It is currently implemented in most major used process technologies and typically  reduces the power consumption of an entire SoC by 70-90%.

Make wearable and IOT audio effortless with a plug'n'play class D amplifier

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

A power-hungry display is not the most efficient medium for interfacing with battery-powered portable, wearable, and IoT devices. For this reason, low-power audio is fast becoming a more popular alternative. In this design solution, Maxim Integrated reviews the class D digital audio amplifier and discusses the constraints of some current solutions before presenting a cleverly packaged IC that requires minimal configuration to quickly bring high-quality audio to these applications.

IEC 62368-1 Overvoltage Requirements

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Littelfuse

Over-voltage protection is an often neglected and misunderstood part of system design. But often, otherwise well-engineered devices are brought down by over-voltage events. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Todd Phillips of Littelfuse about the new IEC 623689-1 standard, what tests are included in the standard, and how the standard allows for greater safety and design flexibility.
