There has been an explosion in the use of Short Range Wireless Solutions in recent years, driven principally by the arrival and development of the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) standard. Whilst plenty of short range wireless solutions existed previously, their uptake was limited. This was either because they focussed on narrow niches such as Zigbee or ANT or were ill-suited to battery powered or intermittent use such as Bluetooth “classic”. BLE fulfilled the original general “cable replacement” objectives of the original Bluetooth standard. With BLE quickly becoming natively available on phones, laptops and tablets, there was a ready-made market of devices to connect to.
There are two basic approaches to designing a wireless system – build the system from the ground up, with an RF chip, passives, filters, and connect an antenna, or use a wireless module that integrates all of these elements into a complete system.
Integrating RF & IoT technologies into the design of smart PPE wearables to improve workplace safety
The management of workplace health and safety risks in the Covid-19 era has highlighted the importance of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for workers across industries including healthcare. Designers are now integrating technology, and often wireless solutions into equipment to create smart PPE. However, RF devices worn close to the body pose challenges, which Nick Wood, Sales & Marketing Director at RF circuit miniaturisation, system-in-package & antenna-in-package expert, Insight SiP reviews here…
