Ambiq today announced that, for the second time, it has been selected as the winner of the “IoT Semiconductor Company of the Year” award in the seventh annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program conducted by IoT Breakthrough, a market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today. Ambiq won the same award in 2021.
Ambiq’s breakthrough products include a diverse family of System on Chips (SoCs), enabling sophisticated computing, sensing, Bluetooth connectivity, advanced graphics, and AI processing – all at a small fraction of the power consumed by other products. Nearly 200 million IoT devices, including wearables, hearables, always-on voice-command remote controls, gaming controllers, smart home security, and advanced industrial automation, are using Ambiq at the core of their products.
“Ambiq has been growing and making a measurable impact for 13 years, we have consistently delivered record-low-power technology platform and processor solutions for IoT endpoint devices,” said Fumihide Esaka, the chairman and CEO at Ambiq. “We are incredibly pleased to accept this award from IoT Breakthrough for our SoCs’ breakthrough performance and contribution to the semiconductor industry.”
“Connectivity between a broad range of devices is the promise of IoT, and lower power connectivity can advance this possibility with technology designed to empower devices that are constrained by power demands. Devices, no matter their size, need to be able to operate autonomously for long periods of time while consuming little power,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Ambiq’s ultra-low-power platform and solutions drive the semiconductor industry and the entire IoT ecosystem to rethink their design architecture and processes to tackle the same power consumption restraints that have prevented AI from running on battery-powered endpoint devices. We’re thrilled to recognize Ambiq as the ‘IoT Semiconductor Company of the Year” for 2023.”
