Ambiq Micro

Fabless Semiconductors

Ambiq Micro products are redefining the meaning of ultra-low power integrated circuits. The company’s proprietary SPOT™ design platform dramatically reduces energy consumed in standard CMOS chip designs to subthreshold levels – up to orders of magnitude below the power required in today’s traditional semiconductor product designs. Significantly increased battery life frees product designers to expand the features and functions incorporated in their products and exceed battery life requirements. Ambiq Micro’s products inherently change the design and use of energy critical products used in consumer, industrial, automotive and medical applications.
