Sensors are pervasive in today’s consumer devices, as applications like those in mobile, automotive and IoT markets increasingly rely on the ability interpret a combination of environmental conditions such as pressure, temperature, motion, and proximity. Tomorrow’s sensor processing will expand sensor fusion to include additional control features such as voice activation, and basic biometrics such as face detection. These requirements are driving the development of progressively more complex embedded control SoCs. Integrated IP subsystems that consist of pre-verified hardware and software allow you to quickly incorporate advanced sensor and control functionality into your system and optimize it for your specific application

This webinar will:

  • Discuss how sensor fusion functions in IoT applications are expanding to include biometric (voice/facial) control features and how this increasing system complexity can effectively be addressed with a tightly integrated IP subsystem
  • Show how the tight coupling of a DesignWare® ARC® EM processor with digital I/O interfaces and DSP hardware accelerators boost performance efficiency and reduce power consumption by up to 85 percent compared to discrete solutions
  • Describe how the hardware and software DesignWare Sensor and Control IP solution eases integration effort, while offering significant area savings with lower latency compared to typical bus-based systems

Who Should Attend:
Design engineers, managers and system architects who are developing SoCs for automotive, mobile, industrial and IoT applications that require sensor fusion and actuator/motor control functions.
