The reference design enables OEMs to efficiently develop high-performance smartphone, wearable and IoT systems using the Bosch Sensortec BMI160 motion sensors. The BMI160 integrates an accelerometer and a gyroscope for motion sensing. Data from these, and other sensors that are integrated in the reference design, is fused and processed by the EOS S3 sensor processing SoC.
The reference design platform includes the EOS S3 sensor processing SoC, a development board with a variety of sensors, which includes the Bosch BMI160 and an integrated microphone. To enable rapid evaluation and design development, the platform connects directly to the Google Nexus 5 smartphone through an integrated micro-USB connection port. The system is also supported by QuickLogic's Celeris Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Tool Suite and Eclipse plug-in software development environment with ARM® Cortex® M4F support. The platform also provides support for the Android Marshmallow operating system.
"QuickLogic's EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC Reference Design gives customers an easy way to evaluate the BMI160 motion sensor and integrate it into their products," said Jeanne Forget, vice president of marketing at Bosch Sensortec. "When used in conjunction with the QuickLogic EOS S3 programmable sensor processing platform, OEMs can rapidly develop a wide range of leading-edge, ultra-low power sensor-based applications."
"Developers working with the industry-leading Bosch BMI160 sensors now have a complete and pre-validated sensor processing solution," said Mao Wang, director of product marketing at QuickLogic. "Our EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC Reference Design provides a known-good starting point to dramatically reduce development effort and achieve the fastest possible time-to-market."
QuickLogic's EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC Reference Design Platform with Bosch sensors is available today. For additional information, please visit http://www.quicklogic.com/eos_rd.
