NXP Launches World’s Most Power Efficient Bluetooth Low Energy Chip for Wearable Devices

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CES 2016 – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI) today introduced the world’s most power efficient Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) System-on-a-Chip (SoC) solution. The new chip is 40 percent more energy efficient than its closest competitor and can deliver an unprecedented 2X times longer battery life for wearable and fitness tracking devices. The QN 9080 can run multiple applications and features a fusion signal processor for continuous sensing in an “always-on” state. NXP is the first in the industry to deliver a BLE SoC solution that allows consumers to wear smart devices for up to a month without recharging.

“This is the dawn of new, super energy efficient, smart wearables,” said Asit Goel, senior vice president and general manager of the secure monitoring and control business line. “Today’s consumer is always on-the-go and needs to be connected to their personal data. The QN 9080 allows for just that – enabling far superior battery life, enhanced wireless robustness, support for multiple sensors and the smallest system size to create the ultimate connected experience that consumers demand.”

NXP has been working closely with wearable and fitness device manufacturers such as Huami to develop the QN 9080 – sharing a vision to make wearable and fitness devices more connected, secure and energy efficient. The combined engineering efforts have ensured that next generation of wearable and fitness devices harness the capabilities of the QN 9080 to deliver new levels of battery performance in wearables as they increasingly monitor aspects of our daily lives.

The QN 9080 leverages an ARM Cortex architecture and a 2.4 GHz radio Bluetooth that yields two times the performance while using half of the power in existing solutions today. In addition, the chip features a fusion signal processor that uses a quarter of the power than that of existing solutions.
