"Sensor hubs are driving a user experience revolution by extending battery life and adding 'always-on' sensor applications to mobile and wearable devices," said Chad Lucien, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing at Hillcrest Labs. "Tensilica DSPs provide an excellent foundation for ultra-low-power sensor hubs, and we are excited to work with Cadence's customers to create context aware devices with new sensor enabled user experiences and longer battery life."
