Mouser Electronics, Inc., has just launched the new Wearables Technology site, sponsored by STMicroelectronics. This new technology site on Mouser.com provides product information on STMicroelectronics (ST) semiconductor devices that satisfy the always-on, low power, network connected requirements of the emerging Wearables Device and Internet of Things applications.
The new STMicroelectronics Wearables Technology site, available on Mouser.com has several sections listing STMicroelectronics devices that target the new Wearables market. The Switch ICs section lists switch ICs that are commonly used to route signals for speakers, headphones, or sensors. For example, the AS11P2TLR, AS21P2TLR Analog Switches are high speed Single-Pole Double-throw (SPDT) semiconductor switches. The Current Sense Amplifiers section lists the ST CS30/CS70, used to avoid overheating and short circuits. Current sense amplifiers are also an essential feature of energy meters. The Operational Amplifiers section focuses on low power op amps with different voltage ranges, with varying combinations of power consumption and gain bandwidth. The Bluetooth section features the STMicroelectronics BlueNRG Low Energy Bluetooth Processor, a low power Bluetooth 4.0 transceiver based on an ARM Cortex‑M0. And finally, the Accelerators and Gyroscopes section presently features ST's LSM330/D iNEMO 3D Accelerometer & 3D Gyroscope.
Example applications for the Wearables market include Fitness and Wellness for monitoring activities and emotions, healthcare and medical for monitoring vital signs such as blood pressure and other biosignals, infotainment for entertaining and enhancing lifestyle, industrial applications for receiving and transmitting real time data for handheld terminals, and heads-up instrumentation displays.
