QuickLogic partners with Nordic Semiconductor on wearable sensor hub evaluation kit
Michael McManus, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Friday 19 December 2014]

QuickLogic recently announced the availability of the TAG-N Wearable Sensor Hub evaluation kit that supports a direct connection to a Nordic Semiconductor nRF51 DK, which is Nordic's all-in-one, multiprotocol development kit for ultra-low power wireless development on the nRF51822 SoC.

The solution can provide a comprehensive solution for a wearable reference design that is suitable for quick prototyping, as well as demonstration and testing of activity monitoring, context and gesture algorithms, the company stated, while supporting always-on sensor capability with built-in pedometer, gesture and context algorithms.

The kit incorporates the QuickLogic ArcticLink 3 S2 ultra-low power programmable sensor hub, QuickLogic-developed algorithms, and a direct connection to a Nordic Semiconductor nRF51 DK, Nordic's all-in-one, multiprotocol development kit for ultra-low power wireless development on the nRF51822 SoC. Nordic's ultra-low power nRF51822 Bluetooth Smart enables a wearable-to-host device for wireless communications.

QuickLogic's ArcticLink 3 S2 CSSP programmable sensor hub solution consumes only 150 microWatts and supports always-on, always-aware applications in wearable devices.

The TAG-N Wearable Sensor Hub evaluation kit, part number QL-TAG-N-S2, is currently available and priced at US$249.
