MegaChips Partners with Bosch Sensortec on IoT

MegaChips announced a partnership with Bosch Sensortec to provide a complete reference design for use in smartphones, wearables and other personal devices allowing consumers to monitor their activities in real time.

The companies are offering a reference design provides both context and location awareness for health, fitness and indoor navigation monitoring and tracking applications. MegaChips' ultra-low power frizz, combined with the SiTime SiT1602 programmable MHz oscillator and the Bosch Sensortec MEMS sensors BMI160, BMM150 and BME280 provide more meaningful data, easy interpretation, higher accuracy and ultra-low power critical for longer battery life. Frizz is a motion sensor hub with a 32bit DSP based motion engine called "ParaForce" that can realize high performance calculations used in processing algorithms with ultra-low power consumption in lieu of a microprocessor, which often runs at hundreds of MHz and consumes much higher power, thereby extending the runtime of portable devices.

"With each generation, devices are getting smaller and more accurate," said Utah Iwasaki, manager, business development MegaChips Technology America Corporation. "Our new joint solution with first-rate sensors from Bosch enables longer lasting wearable devices that collect more accurate data on movement, speed, distance and direction. We can, for instance, track how someone is moving their arms and legs, which is great for golf swing analysis."

  • Last year, MegaChips Corporation, a top 25 fabless semiconductor company based in Japan, acquired SiTime for $200 million in cash.  SiTime, which is based in Sunnyvale, California, specializes in silicon MEMS-based oscillators and clock generators that are a drop-in replacement for legacy quartz crystal products. Its  MEMS timing solutions replace quartz products in the telecom, networking, computing, storage and consumer markets, with the benefits of higher performance, smaller size, and lower power and cost.MegaChips Corporation, a top 25 fabless semiconductor company based in Japan, agreed to acquire SiTime for $200 million in cash.
