According to the press release, Dialog Semiconductor in collaboration with Bosch Sensortec is all set to bring together best-in-class Bluetooth, power management and sensor technologies that will enable designers to develop high-performance, innovative products with exceptionally long battery life.
In reference to the news release, “The platform combines Dialog’s DA14580 Bluetooth Smart System-on-Chip (SoC) with three low power sensors from Bosch Sensortec: the BMM150 for 3-axis geo-magnetic field measurement, the BME280 pressure, humidity and temperature sensor and the 6-axis BMI160 (a combination of a 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope in one chip). The resulting unit, built onto a 14mm x 14mm printed circuit board, consumes less than 500 µA from a 3V coin cell when updating and transferring all 12 x 16 bits of
data wirelessly to a smartphone.”
Udo-Martin Gomez, CTO of Bosch Sensortec, said, “Higher functional integration and lower power consumption are key design goals for devices at the heart of mobile consumer electronic products. From our companies’ joint experience, we see many opportunities to deliver competitive advantages for our customers by creating smaller, highly integrated and more energy efficient smart connected solutions.”
