Increasing time-to-market pressures have led to the availability of full-featured microcontrollers, sometimes called system-on-chip (SoC) processors. These feature-rich microcontrollers or SoCs speed design by integrating a part of or, in some cases, all of the hardware required to implement an embedded design. Developers can then focus their design efforts on application-level functionality. Greater integration, however, [...]
The ready availability of Bluetooth Smart Ready in smart phones, tablets, and other portable devices makes Bluetooth Low Energy an excellent choice as the communication protocol in wearable applications. With SoC-based BLE controllers, OEMs can minimize power consumption, device size, and system cost, making their wearable designs even more attractive and competitive.
