PLS10 - Ultra-Low Power MCU

PLS10 is the first true sub-threshold chip of PLSense. It is an ultra-low power integrated general purpose MCU. It includes a full DSP and DMA functionality and a range of interface options. It is aimed at the growing market if IoT battery operated devices that are limited by the power consumption.

The PLS10 utilizes the PLSense unique Near/Sub-threshold technology. It is the first device ever to use PLSense patented TOPS (True sub-threshold Power Optimized Silicon) technology. TOPS technology continuously monitors the silicon device and minimizes in real time its power consumption– without any intervention from the user.

The PLS10 architecture is based on the Synopsys ARC EM5D core which can be clocked at frequencies between 0.5 and 100MHz. The PLS10 achieves ultra-low power consumption per operation: 18 uA/MHz

The PLS10 can be connected directly to a battery source and operates from internally generated voltages between 0.45 and 1.1v.

The PLS10 Highlights

  • Ultra-low power consumption in active and sleep modes - achieved by true sub-Threshold operation

  • Optimized power consumption automatically achieved by PLSense patented TOPS (True sub-threshold Power Optimized Silicon) technology

  • Ultra-low power consumption per operation: 18 uA/MHz

  • Based on Synopsys ARC EM5D MCU operating at a speed of up to 100 MHz, with full DSP instruction set

  • Internal Core voltage of 0.45-1.1V is generated inside the chip via an internal
