AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ambiq®a technology pioneer in ultra-low-power semiconductor products and solutions, presents neuralSPOT®an open-source SDK focused on AI developers designed for Ambiq’s latest Apollo4 Plus system-on-chip (SoC) family.

While taking advantage of Ambiq’s proprietary SPOT® platform, neuralSPOT unlocks a multiple and revolutionary improvement in energy efficiency for our end customers’ electronic products. The SDK includes essential software and tools for developers to advance AI functionality for their applications. Designed with libraries to communicate with sensors, manage SoC devices, control power and memory configurations, tools to easily debug AI models from a laptop or PC, and examples, neuralSPOT ties it all together.

Today, AI is widely used in the smart, multi-billion dollar Internet of Things (IoT) space for everything from industrial anomaly detection to speech-based consumer interfaces. The installed base of IoT devices is expected to grow from 14.6 billion devices in 2021 to 30.0 billion devices by 2027, according to Ericsson®enhanced by the growth of applications such as smart wearables, hearing aids, industrial IoT (IIoT), smart manufacturing, healthcare, smart home, smart buildings and automotive.

With a turnkey approach, neuralSPOT helps unlock the highly efficient AI capabilities of Apollo4 Plus by including Ambiq-specific optimized libraries for audio, I2C, power and memory management, accelerated inter-process communication and other peripherals. Additionally, it offers custom tools to facilitate common cross-platform AI development challenges, such as testing a deployed model against public datasets by enabling PC-based AI models to communicate from seamlessly with Ambiq’s integrated platforms. It also includes out-of-the-box AI examples to help get started developing AI features on Ambiq products.

neuralSPOT’s open-source, modular approach is designed specifically for embedded AI application developers, flexibly adapting to multiple workflows to drive development and collaboration.

“Ambiq’s feature-rich Apollo4 family is a high-performance and extremely energy-efficient AI platform,” said Carlos Morales, vice president of AI at Ambiq. “neuralSPOT will help propel our customers’ initiatives toward faster time-to-market for implementing their unique features.”

Built by AI developers for AI developers, neuralSPOT provides an on-ramp to rapid AI feature development for our customers’ AI applications and products.

About Ambiq
Our mission is to enable smart devices everywhere by developing low-power semiconductor solutions to create a more energy-efficient, sustainable and data-driven world. We are a pioneer in ultra-low-power semiconductor solutions based on our proprietary and patented Subthreshold Power Optimized Technology (SPOT) platform. SPOT offers a multiple and revolutionary improvement in the energy efficiency of the electronic products of our end customers. Ambiq has helped leading manufacturers around the world develop products that run for weeks (rather than days) on a single charge, while delivering the maximum feature set in compact industrial designs. Ambiq’s goal is to take artificial intelligence (AI) where it has never gone before in mobile and wearable devices, using advanced ultra-low-power system-on-chip (SoC) solutions. energy of Ambiq. Ambiq shipped over 150 million units in April 2022. For more information, visit
