Delivering on-chip efficiency in a connected world

Ensigma connectivity, communications and networking IP can, singly or in combination, solve the fundamental problems that plague connected devices.

  • How do I bring communications ‘on-chip’?
  • How do I deliver the range of connectivity standards required by almost all devices today – and tomorrow?

Today’s consumers expect to be connected wherever they go, with whatever device they choose. Ensigma blends programmable and fixed function blocks to deliver a family of highly scalable multi-standard connectivity platforms that offer exceptional performance as well as outstanding silicon efficiency.

Today’s connected devices are moving away from using separate wireless combo chips toward integrating connectivity

The Ensigma Explorer radio processing unit (RPU) family is focused on enabling high-performance on-chip communications with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as global DTV, digital radio, and FM receiver capabilities. Our RPUs address the ever-growing challenge of proliferating broadcast and connectivity standards by supporting them all on a single engine, and enabling them to be integrated onto SoCs for the lowest possible system cost.

Ensigma Whisper is a flexible ultra-low power sensor and cloud connectivity IP family, designed specifically to enable the integration of low power communications in SoCs targeting wearables, IoT and other connected devices that require exceptional battery life and low cost points.
Ensigma - Scalable and flexible wireless communications solution

Uniquely flexible communications processor

Traditionally, radio, TV, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth used to have their own chipsets but, as the number of standards to be supported continues to increase, this approach becomes less cost-effective and more power hungry. Today’s connected devices are moving away from using separate wireless combo chips towards integrating connectivity onto the main application processor as companies look to reduce power, footprint and bill-of-materials.With their focus on delivering high performance within an ultra-low power envelope, Imagination’s Ensigma RPUs can enable companies seeking to make this disruptive leap.

Ensigma Whisper is a flexible ultra-low power sensor and cloud connectivity IP family, designed specifically to enable the integration of low power communications in SoCs targeting wearables, IoT and other connected devices that require exceptional battery life and low cost points.

The Ensigma Explorer RPU family is focused on enabling high-performance onchip communications with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as global DTV, digital radio, and FM receiver capabilities.
