Eta Compute and ROHM Semiconductor Collaborate to Create Low Power Wi-SUN Compatible Sensor Nodes

Ultra-low power consumption and exceptional sensitivity enable continuous, real time monitoring with superior accuracy

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. and  SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eta Compute Inc., a company focused on delivering next generation autonomous intelligence to mobile and edge devices, and ROHM Semiconductor, a leading supplier of various kinds of semiconductors, today announced their collaboration to develop unprecedented low power Wireless Smart Ubiquitous Network (Wi-SUN) compatible sensor nodes. The nodes will combine ROHM’s sensor technology and Eta Compute’s low power MCUs to deliver one of the highest performing, lowest power solutions for smart utility networks and the IoT.

“Our partnership with ROHM gives our customers access to industry-leading sensor technology combined with the industry’s lowest power microprocessor technology,” said Paul Washkewicz, vice president and co-founder of Eta Compute. “By focusing on Wi-SUN compatibility, we are providing essential components for large-scale outdoor networking required for smart cities and a diverse range of applications in an intelligent loT.”

The nodes coming from the ROHM and Eta Compute partnership will be designed for frequent, low-latency communication that draws less than 1 μA when resting and, more importantly, only 1 mA while sensing. This enables customers to configure devices to sense frequently and still maintain a long-life. The nodes will be compatible with Wi-SUN technology, which is based on the IEEE 802.15.4g standard and backed by the Wi-SUN Alliance.

"We are pleased to collaborate with Eta Compute. ROHM has targeted the sensor business as one of our growth strategies. We offer a wide range of sensor line-ups and propose sensor solutions, combining wireless communication devices. By pooling our resources, we will provide customers with the sensor nodes they need to deploy next-generation networks across a wide range of applications,” said Satya Dixit, Sr. Director of Solutions Marketing, at ROHM Semiconductor.

The optimized low power design of EtaCore™ IP can reduce power consumption by 10X enabling sensor hubs to perform sensor fusion with local computing and provide real-time data from mobile and IoT enabled devices. ROHM’s portfolio of sensors that detect environmental/physical conditions and networks for transmitting and sharing sensor data are essential for achieving IoT and for the development and deployment of next-generation sensor networks.

Eta Compute and ROHM will be exhibiting at Sensors Expo 2018 in San Jose at The McEnery Convention Center on June 26-28. Both companies will demonstrate the Energy Harvesting Sensor Evaluation Board using Eta Compute’s low power MCU based on its proprietary DIAL™ technology. In addition, Eta Compute will demonstrate ROHM’s WI-SUN module BP35C0, Pressure Sensor BM1383AGLV, Temperature Sensor BD1020HFV, and Optical Heat Rate Sensor BH1792GLC at its booth, number 934. ROHM will demonstrate its Color Sensor BH1749NUC at its booth, number 516.

About Eta Compute

Eta Compute was founded in 2015 with the vision that the proliferation of intelligent devices at the network edge will make daily life safer, healthier, comfortable and more convenient without sacrificing privacy and security.  The company's recently launched DIAL™ Technology is the world’s lowest power embedded compute platform and is a natural architecture to support machine learning and machine intelligence in portable devices.

OneSpin Provides Automated ISO 26262 Safety Analysis, Verification Flow to Kalray

Functional Safety Flow Enables Kalray’s Massively Parallel Processor Arrays to Be Used in Autonomous Vehicles

MUNICH, Germany and SAN JOSE, Calif., June 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OneSpin® Solutions announced today successful completion of the first phase of an effort to deploy at Kalray a rigorous, automated flow for the analysis of hardware architectural metrics required by the ISO 26262 automotive electronics standard.

Kalray designs and markets a new generation of “intelligent” processors that have the capability to analyze on the fly and in an intelligent manner a large flow of information, and to react and make decisions in real time.

Kalray’s intelligent processors deliver low-latency, low-consumption and massively parallel computing targeting data center cloud infrastructure, big data analytics and self-driving car markets. It needed an automated flow for its MPPA® many-core processors to calculate ISO 26262 hardware metrics, including single point fault metric (SPFM), latent fault metric (LFM) and the probabilistic metric for random hardware failures (PMHF). The functional safety flow, an imperative when designing and deploying compute platforms for intelligent systems, enables MPPA to be used in safety-critical systems within autonomous vehicles.

“Kalray is at the forefront of massively parallel architectures for artificial intelligence,” adds Jörg Grosse, product manager functional safety for OneSpin. “We were able to adapt our technology for Kalray’s specific project needs for a successful partnership that further improves our functional safety solution and confirms OneSpin as an EDA leader in this field.”

“Computing hardware fault metrics and achieving targets set by ISO 26262 is challenging, but crucial to enable the application of our massively parallel many-core technology in autonomous vehicles,” remarks Camille Jalier, Kalray’s Director of Hardware R&D. “OneSpin is a trusted provider of apps, methodology and expertise to automate many steps of this process. Working cooperatively with its engineers smoothed our path to ISO 26262, savings months of project time.”

OneSpin, provider of innovative formal verification solutions for highly reliable, digital integrated circuits (ICs), will demonstrate its comprehensive formal verification solutions at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) Booth #2611 Monday-Wednesday, June 25-27, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. DAC will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
