SigmaSense has licensed technology to NXP, and the companies will collaborate on high-performance sensing products for specific applications with demands for faster, more robust, fully immersive software-defined experiences.
“The next generation of smart devices and applications are demanding data for enhanced functionality that requires an entirely new software-programmable approach to sensing,” said Lars Reger, CTO, NXP Semiconductors. “SigmaSense has created a breakthrough in sensing technology with an innovative approach that makes exciting new product designs possible.”
“NXP’s prowess in highly dependable products and deep expertise in high-volume semiconductor design combined with SigmaSense technology will accelerate game-changing sensing products,” added Rick Seger, CEO, SigmaSense. “Our co-development with NXP marks the transition to a universe of new data- centric design options driven by software-defined sensing.”
SigmaSense has made it possible to extract vastly more data from the physical world for a wide range of products and systems.
Multi-dimensional sensing works through many different surfaces, shapes, and materials, that will enable previously impossible designs. With the invention of measuring current direct-to-digital, SigmaSense can deliver low-voltage, frequency domain sensing, which is an industry first.
Fast, continuous, high-fidelity data capture with intelligent digital signal processing moves analogue challenges to the digital domain, where greater flexibility in terms of design can deliver orders of magnitude improvement.
