In 2014, it is anticipated that 658 million sensor hubs will be sold worldwide with that number growing to 1.3 billion by 2017 (IHS Technology, April 2014).Impressive numbers for what could certainly still be considered a fledgling market.This growth is being driven by the availability of low cost sensor technology and the desire for always-on sensing allowing mobile devices to understand user context and eventually anticipate user needs.

The number of applications employing current sensors is expanding and new sensors are being introduced continuously which will drive even more use-cases.Managing the multitude of inputs in a rapidly changing ecosystem will require a sensor hub which is extremely flexible and minimally invasive.The need for flexibility, in both hardware and software, is evident.Ten axis fusion incorporating four different sensor types (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and pressure sensor) is the latest standard.However, this baseline represents only a small fraction of the available sensors and the algorithms that can take advantage of them.Incorporation of additional inputs and the resulting necessary increase in computational capabilities will further stretch power budgets.That, in turn, will drive the need for sensor hubs which not only have lower power consumption, but also assist in actively managing system-level power reduction.

In this ever changing environment, key enabling hub platform attributes include the ability to be sensor, Operating System (OS), and Application Processor (AP) agnostic, the capability for expeditious incorporation of software and algorithm changes, and minimization of system power consumption.

Several different sensor hub approaches are currently being employed, including those based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) processors, Microcontroller (MCU) based systems, and Application Processor embedded devices.The strengths and weaknesses of each of these approaches will be addressed.
