Bluetooth Low Energy started life as a simple point to point “master/slave” protocol, enabling low power connections. Indeed, we still see many new customer applications requiring little more than this – the ability to connect new or existing pieces of electronic equipment easily and wirelessly to a smartphone, tablet or computer remains very powerful. Just with this simple use-case, you have a rich range of possibilities – medical/health related wearable, easy interface to industrial electronics, battery powered monitoring add-ons, and many more.
The healthcare/medical and wellness wearables market flourishes, thanks in part to wireless IoT connectivity provided by RF modules. In this article, we look at the market, key trends and innovative wearables in this space including some in which our RF modules are embedded.
Our ultra-miniature RF module with LoRa, BLE and NFC capabilities, the ISP4520, a Smart Combo module with dual integrated antennas is now available in separate versions for Europe, USA and Japan, to meet the specific frequency band ranges and dBm ratings for LoRa communication in these markets.
Insight SIP introduced the 1507-AX BLE model around two years ago. It quickly became our “best-seller” offering a superb combination of performance and price in the smallest package on the market. We are now building on this success by expanding our offering with another product in the 15 Series, and launching the 18 Series products which open all kinds of new possibilities for our customers.
Beddr, a US health technology company, has created the SleepTuner™, the world’s smallest wearable that measures how breathing and sleep positions affect sleep quality. Through an app, it also offers insights into how to sleep better. Beddr has developed the SleepTuner™ with Insight SiP’s expertise in ultra-miniature RF modules.
Nick Wood, President, Insight SiP explains how design engineers can use SIP (Systems-in-Package) to squeeze ever more functionality into ever smaller spaces.
System in Package is a way of providing a complete system in what looks externally like a single component (like a chip in a QFN package), but which inside are increasingly sophisticated systems, which can incorporate semiconductors, passives and RF components.
