Keywords:Newton2? MIPS? wearables? IoT?

Ingenic Semiconductor rolled out Newton2, a highly integrated MIPS-based platform targeting a wide range of connected electronic devices, such as wearables and IoT.

The Newton2 allows wearable device manufacturers to design and promote to market a differentiated product in a shorter period of time. Packed in a 15mm x 30mm hardware module, it has seven external connectors that can accelerate product development while reducing risk and controlling costs.

The new platform features a dual-core 1.2GHz processor Ingenic M200; one core is up to 1.2GHz

for high performance applications, while the other is up to 300MHz for low power applications. Its target applications include:

  • Infotainment: smart watches, smart glasses, smart camera, augmented reality headsets
  • Fitness and Wellness: smart clothing, smart sports glasses, activity monitors, sleep sensors
  • Healthcare: wearable healthcare monitors
  • Battery life has also been improved with less than 3mW board standby power, which allows Newton2 to work two times longer than other devices in the same class. In addition, it can run the

    latest version of the Android and Linux operating systems, making it easy for developers to build various device drivers and user applications on it.

    Other features of the Ingenic Newton2 include Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1 (BLE) that allows for the wearable device to connect to a smartphone or directly to the cloud; integrated MEMS sensors with 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3- axis magnetometer for developing excellent user experience for sports and games applications; free hardware schematics; open source Android 4.4; and complete SDK for software developers.
