ARM Cordio Radio IP and ARM Subsystem for IoT

Posted by Charbax – June 2, 2015

At Computex 2015, ARM launches their new ARM Cordio Radio IP ultra low power Bluetooth LE 4.2. It has an analog RF component, a digital baseband modem component and mbed IoT subsystem running on an ARM Cortex-M3, based around the mbed OS and mbed device server allowing to build a solution around IoT devices and to connect them to the web. The ARM mbed OS runs on ARM Cortex-M devices. ARM is partnering with TSMC using their 55ULP process to dramatically lower the power consumption getting a 40% reduction in dynamic power consumption and a 25% reduction in the leakage.

Sharp Memory LCD

Posted by Charbax – June 2, 2015

At the IDTechEx show, Sharp demonstrates Memory LCD technology that delivers high-contrast, high-resolution displays for outdoor use. They are already being used in the quite popular Pebble watch. These LCD modules embed 1-bit memory in every pixel to enable each pixel to hold state while requiring low power. This delivers an "always on" display that uses little power (only a single supply voltage is required), even when updating images. This helps designers create products with long battery life. It also eliminates sweeping images or "ghosting", because only the part of the image that requires updating needs to be changed. The response time of Sharp's Memory LCDs makes it fast enough to display motion video. Right now Memory LCD is thus a quite good contender for the Smartwatch market, with Android Wear being a possibility also, perhaps Smartphones could use Memory LCD also to design a smartphone with potentially weeks of battery life instead of a day or two.

Bainisha Body Motion Capturing using Printed Electronics

Posted by Charbax – May 15, 2015

Bainisha is a high-tech start-up dedicated to the development of a new paradigm in Body Motion Capturing. This interview, taken at the IDTechEx event on Wearable Technology, shows some of the product they are working on. Based on a thin hyper-stretchable film version of an Inverse Artificial Muscle, it delivers a set of new and hitherto unattained functionalities in terms of accuracy, speed & differentiation. The on-body concept guarantees an Absolute Body References Frame and hence sets a new standard for Medical Quality Data. Because the system has no "wake-up"-threshold and no filtering and/or damping combined with a +kHz capturing speed, it allows capturing such minute displacements as muscle tremor, pre-natal contractions, fatigue induced tremble etc... as well as explosive kinetics.
