Voice Activated Wake Up and Ultra Low Power Design

Many mobile applications use sensors to monitor various activities- movement, sound, temperature, and the like. The sensors, if "always on" in full power would shorten battery life. Recent chip developments enable applications and devices to operate in a low power mode until they detect the signal that wakes them up and activates them for the [...]

Production Hell: Unpredictable Field Failures Solved by Voler

There’s nothing worse than production stopping for design issues. A recent client asked us to help solve an intermittent design problem causing unpredictable field failures and costly product returns in a product designed by another firm. We quickly determined the root of the problem and provided a way for the device to power down fully [...]
