Globalfoundries and Linear Dimensions Semiconductor Inc. are partnering to create a 14-channel programmable analog reference design targeted at the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables.
The LND1114 analog reference design is aimed at meeting the tuning needs of emerging sensors for IoT and wearable applications. The companies said the LND114 is suited well for precision sensor biasing because it offers a 13uV typical drift after 10 years at 70 C and a low temperature drift and an initial accuracy of 0.2 percent.
David Schie, CEO of Linear Dimensions, said in a statement that wearable health and fitness products, cell phones, consumer cameras, media players and headsets are “increasingly integrating multiple single and multi-function sensors” in order to add functionality to applications. He added the LND1114 accomplishes this task because it offers multiple channels with unparalleled accuracy and flexibility “in a smaller footprint just a fraction of the size of existing solutions.”
Greg Bartlett, senior VP of product management at Globalfoundries, said in the same statement as these products become more pervasive on the market “technologies that enable such devices become extremely important.” He added that because Globalfoundries offers platforms from 350nm to 28nm it allows for ample opportunities for “innovative products in the rapidly growing IoT and wearable markets.”
