InvenSense™ Announces Turnkey Commercial Grade Wearable Platform For Health and Fitness

BARCELONA, Spain, February 24, 2014 – InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN),  the leading provider of MotionTracking™ sensor system on chip (SoC) and Sound devices, announces a turnkey wearable platform solution intended to substantially shorten the time-to-market for any OEM or ODM. The InvenSense wearable platform solution integrates all of the key functions of a health and fitness wearable device including Motion sensors, Pressure sensor, Microcontroller Unit (MCU), and BlueTooth Low Energy (BLE). This platform incorporates the InvenSense embedded Automatic Activity Recognition (AAR™) software library, which efficiently manages both the key software and hardware components allowing for ‘AlwaysOn’ activity recognition. 

Combining InvenSense’s low-power 6-axis MotionTracking SoC with the advanced AAR software library enables detection of a broader set of activities such as: stationary, walk, run, bike, elliptical, and sleep on a wrist-worn wearable device. The AAR software library also provides accurate pedometer and elevation tracking. Along with software libraries, the InvenSense wearable platform solution includes the Gerber files, BOM, layout, circuit schematics, and XY coordinates that allow the customer to bring its own solution to commercial production. All essential software elements required for a commercial product release are provided. This efficient turnkey solution allows up to 7 days of battery life (70mAH battery) with 24/7 activity recognition.

“In the era of health and fitness wearables, InvenSense is enabling a fast growing ecosystem of developers, operators, brands, big data services, healthcare providers, sports retailers, and fashion designers by providing a commercial grade platform that substantially reduces time to market,” said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. “InvenSense’s new ‘AlwaysOn’ wearable turnkey platform with activity recognition is enabling a new wave of intelligent health and fitness devices such as smart watches, fitness bands, fashion accessories, and health applications.”

InvenSense is exhibiting in booth # D61 in Hall 7 at the 2014 Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona, Spain from February 24 – 27, 2014.

Matter & NXP

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Interoperability in our growing Internet of things ecosystem has been a challenge for years. But the new Matter standard is looking to change all of that. It could not only make homes smarter but our design lives easier as well. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Sujata Neidig from NXP examine how Matter will revolutionize IoT by increasing interoperability, simplifying development and providing a comprehensive approach to security and privacy. They also discuss what the roadmap for Matter looks like and how NXP’s Matter reference platforms can help you get started with your next IoT design.
