Ambiq Micro developed a patented Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology (SPOT™) platform that dramatically reduces the amount of power consumed by semiconductors. By applying SPOT, Ambiq produces the world’s lowest power real-time clock (RTC) and microcontroller (MCU), Apollo. More details on the products can be found on our Ultra-low power MCUs, BLE and RTCs product website.
The Apollo family of microcontrollers from Ambiq Micro represents a quantum leap forward in the low-power MCU world. Power sensitive applications today are not looking for incremental reductions in energy consumption - they need revolutionary advances and the Apollo MCUs deliver.
The Ambiq Micro AM08xx Low Power Real-Time Clock (RTC) family provides a groundbreaking combination of ultra-low power coupled with a highly sophisticated feature set. With power requirements significantly lower than any other industry RTC (as low as 14nA in RC mode, 22nA in auto calibration mode, 55nA in XT mode), these Ultra-low power Microcontrollers are the first semiconductor products based on Ambiq Micro’s innovative SPOT™ (Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology) CMOS Platform.
