Accuracy in Motion

Health, Fitness, and the Future of Wearable Technology

We all want to trust that our wearable device is measuring our health and fitness accurately, but what does that truly mean? In this week’s Fish Fry, Dr. Steven LeBoeuf (President – Valencell) and I discuss the forces driving the wearable market today, what the future holds for wearable technology, and why he thinks inaccuracy and “death by discharge” are two of the biggest design challenges facing wearable technology designers today. Also this week, we check out how you can enter the MEMS & Sensors Technology Showcase at this year’s MEMS Executive Congress and how Cadence Design Systems’ new Virtuoso ADE Product Suite can address the different requirements and challenges for your team’s analog design tools.
