The sensing needs of smartphone and wearable OEMs are expanding — the S2 Gesture and Context Sensor Hub Catalog CSSP offers out-of-the-box support for mobile device-specific use cases and contexts, delivering the maximum user experience at the ultra-low power levels required for long battery life
S2 Gesture and Context Functions
The ArcticLink® 3 S2 Gesture and Context Catalog CSSP contains a number of smartphone and wearable-specific technologies, including enhanced pedometer, enhanced context detection, Heart Rate Monitor (HRM), significant motion detection, sensor calibration and gesture support.
The ArcticLink 3 S2 Gesture and Context Catalog CSSP supports rotate-to-wake, tap-to-wake, double tap front, and double tap back, ideal for a great wearable user experience.
Double Tap Front
Double Tap Back
Enhanced pedometer including differentiation of running and walking (including step counts)
Unique Sensor Hub Technologies
The S2 Gesture and Context Sensor Hub solution is based on the ArcticLink 3 S2 CSSP Sensor Hub platform, and contains a number of PSB technologies, including Communication Manager, Flexible Fusion Engine, and Sensor Manager.
The device autonomously samples and manages data from multiple sensors found in smartphone and wearable devices. This off-the-shelf solution enables OEMs to immediately integrate best-in-class context awareness and sensor management into their devices quickly.
The S2 Gesture and Context Sensor Hub Catalog CSSP is the ultra-low power sensor hub solution that delivers contexts and gestures in ~150µW, enabling OEMs and software developers to unleash new applications and use cases previously thought unattainable.
The ArcticLink 3 S2 CSSP Sensor Hub is fully compatible with the Android OS and RTOS-based systems. QuickLogic provides standard Android driver libraries to allow for quick integration into an OEM system.
