Artemis Features

From prototype to final production.

Extremely Fast

Cortex-M4F with BLE 5.0 running up to 96MHz and with as low power as 6uA per MHz (less than 5mW). Time-to-first-blink is less than five minutes.

Easy to Use

We've carefully designed the module so that implementing Artemis into your design can be done with low-cost 2-layer PCBs and 8mil trace/space.

Mass Market Ready

Made in the USA at SparkFun's Boulder production line, the Artemis module is designed for consumer grade products beyond the Arduino IDE.

Fully Certified

Artemis has received FCC/IC/CE Certification on world’s first open-source, US manufactured, BLE module.

Prototype to Final Product

Artemis provides users with a module is a full-fledged and ready-to-use processor intended to scale to production.

Ultra Low Power

The Apollo3 chip inside each Artemis module can be powered from a single coin-cell battery.

TensorFlow Capabilities

Artemis is TensorFlow compatible making it available to anyone interested in machine learning.

For Hobbyists and Pros Alike

Artemis can be programmed and used with the Ambiq Apollo SDK or with the written-from-scratch Arduino Core.

Available on Reel and Tape

To support those who want to use the Artemis module in production we provide tape & reel quantities (reels = qty of 500).

Artemis Development with the Arduino IDE

September 10, 2020

This is an in-depth guide on developing in the Arduino IDE for the Artemis module and any Artemis microcontroller development board. Inside, users will find setup instructions and simple examples from blinking an LED and taking ADC measurements; to more complex features like BLE and I2C.

Artemis Development on Arm® Mbed™ OS (Beta)

September 10, 2020

With the latest Artemis DK, board, we now offer full Bluetooth support within the Arduino IDE and development with Mbed™ OS. While we have worked tirelessly to get the Artemis module supported in the next Mbed™ OS release, the next release isn't slated until after the Artemis DK becomes available to the public. Therefore, this post will provide users with a jump start for developing with Mbed™ Studio, prior to the next release (in a beta of sorts), by utilizing our fork of Mbed™ OS.

Getting Started with the Artemis Development Kit

September 10, 2020

This guide covers the general design of the board, the installation of the recommended software used to program the Artemis DK, and some basic examples. For more advanced functionalities, we have separate software development guides for the AmbiqSDK, Arm® Mbed™ OS, and the Arduino IDE platforms that users can reference.

Installing Board Definitions in the Arduino IDE

September 9, 2020

How do I install a custom Arduino board/core? It's easy! This tutorial will go over how to install an Arduino board definition using the Arduino Board Manager. We will also go over manually installing third-party cores, such as the board definitions required for many of the SparkFun development boards.

Using SparkFun Edge Board with Ambiq Apollo3 SDK

March 28, 2019

We will demonstrate how to get started with your SparkFun Edge Board by setting up the toolchain on your computer, examining an example program, and using the serial uploader tool to flash the chip.

Designing with the SparkFun Artemis
