Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Abracon Corporation announces a strategic channel partnership with Ambiq Micro, developer of the world’s lowest power Real Time Clock products. The alliance will authorize Abracon to sell and distribute the newly launched family of Ambiq Micro’s ultra-low power RTC devices directly, as well as through its global distribution channel. Major distributors include: Avnet, DigiKey, Future, Mouser, Newark, WPG, Sager and others worldwide.
Explains Chris Polley, Abracon’s President and CEO, “The advanced Ambiq Micro RTC products are a natural extension to Abracon’s Frequency Control, Signal Conditioning, Clock Distribution, and Magnetic Components business. We are excited about the business potential of Ambiq Micro’s technology and products.”
The Abracon Real Time Clock Product line AB08XX and AB18XX families are the lowest power RTC devices available in the industry with current requirements nearly 10X lower than the closest competitor (as low as 14nA at 3V and 12nA at 1.8V). The advanced full-featured RTC families are the first commercial products to be based on Ambiq Micro’s SPOT ultra-low power design platform.
The AB08XX product line brings a host of cutting-edge system timing functions that are nonexistent in today’s traditional RTC products. The AB18XX contains all timing functions found in the AB08XX product line and integrates a number of innovative system power management features.
“Having Abracon as a strategic channel partner will make Ambiq Micro RTC products immediately available to system designers around the world. This is a perfect partnership for our newly announced RTC product,” says Scott Hanson, Ambiq Micro’s CEO.
Ambiq Micro products will be available through Abracon and its distribution channel partners in late Q4.
