Imagination Technologies Rents Talent

IP Company Lends a Hand to Go with Its Circuitry

by Jim Turley

“I don’t want my personality to overshadow my talent.” – Cardi B

What is the IP business, really? You’re buying a product, albeit an intangible one. You pay a license fee and you get a thing in return, like huge and complicated Verilog files or millions of lines of software. Maybe you also get some documentation, or the right to stamp a logo on your product. 

I don’t think it’s any of these. At its heart, IP isn’t a product, it’s a service. A timesaver. It’s a shortcut to your destination, whether that’s a new

Give Your Wearable’s Micro Some Quality Sleep Time

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Until recently, efforts to save power in wearables have focused on reducing the power consumed by devices while in active mode. A common oversight is that even in low power or sleep mode, some critical device functionality such as timekeeping must be maintained by the microcontroller. We review how wearable devices keep track of time and introduce an alternative real-time clock (RTC) solution that extends battery life by significantly reducing timekeeping current during sleep mode.
