Belgian research centre imec is to work with Analog Devices to develop the next generation of IoT devices. The move, building on two existing initiatives, is intended to produce devices that are not only low-power, but which also feature largely improved or completely new sensing capabilities.
One joint research initiative already underway focuses on localisation technology. A second initiative includes the creation and commercialisation of a highly-integrated liquid sensor that can be used in a variety of application domains, such as the analysis of water, blood or urine.
“Building on imec’s world-leading position in innovative ultra-low power implementations, ADI and imec will pursue the development of a low-power sensor for highly accurate indoor localiSation in the context of smart building or smart industry solutions,” said imec programme director Kathleen Philips. “We want this sensor to … achieve up to five times better accuracy than today’s best-performing solutions.”
Peter Real, Analog Devices’ CTO, added: “We have chosen to take our collaboration with imec to the next level because its expertise in each of those domains – and its position at the crossroads of both the scientific and industrial communities – is fundamental to helping us successfully develop the next generation of IoT sensors.”
