Processor Solutions for Internet of Things (IoT) 


The Internet of Things (IoT) consists of intelligent objects capable of sensing environmental conditions such as motion, temperature and proximity, then processing this data and communicating to humans, machines, or systems. IoT covers a wide range of applications including wearable fitness and medical devices, intelligent appliances, smart energy hubs, automotive, and industrial equipment, to name a few. Today, millions of connected devices comprise the Internet of Things. In the not so distant future, the IoT will consist of billions of intelligent, connected devices. DesignWare® processor solutions, subsystems and ASIP tools efficiently enable the sensor control, embedded processing and communication interfaces of IoT applications. These extremely performance-efficient solutions are ideally suited to support the area- and power-constrained processing requirements of these ultra-low power devices.

  • Example Applications

ARC EM4 and EM6 processors and the pre-integrated Sensor & Control Subsystem target small, low-power embedded control applications like fitness bands

ARC EM4 and EM6 processors and the pre-integrated Sensor & Control Subsystem provide performance-efficient sensor control implementation for intelligent thermostats

ARC EM4, EM6 and EMxD processors provide power management and audio functions for digital stethoscopes.

High-performance ARC HS38, small, low-power ARC EM processors and Data Fusion Subsystem are ideal for battery-operated devices that integrate sensor fusion

  • Hearing Aid
  • Small, low-power processor solutions for space-constrained hearing aids more
