QuickLogic Announces TAG-N Wearable Sensor Hub Evaluation Kit in Collaboration With Nordic Semiconductor

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Dec 11, 2014 --


  • Supports always-on sensor capability with built-in pedometer, gesture and context algorithms
  • Delivers complete, small form factor solution suitable for development and testing of wearable devices
  • Enables Bluetooth Smart wireless connectivity

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable Customer Specific Standard Products ( CSSPs), today announced the availability of the TAG®-N Wearable Sensor Hub evaluation kit. The kit incorporates the QuickLogic ArcticLink® 3 S2 ultra-low power programmable sensor hub, QuickLogic-developed algorithms, and a direct connection to a Nordic Semiconductor nRF51 DK, Nordic's all-in-one, multiprotocol development kit for ultra-low power wireless development on the nRF51822 SoC. The Nordic nRF51 DK enables OEMs to test, evaluate and develop Bluetooth® Smart (formerly known as Bluetooth low energy) enabled wearable devices.

QuickLogic's ArcticLink 3 S2 CSSP programmable sensor hub solution consumes only 150 microWatts of power, and supports always-on, always-aware applications in wearable devices. Nordic's ultra-low power nRF51822 Bluetooth Smart enables a wearable-to-host device for wireless communications. When combined with QuickLogic's best-in-class pedometer, gesture and context algorithms, the TAG-N development kits help OEMs significantly accelerate product development cycles.

"We are very pleased to announce the introduction of our wearable sensor hub evaluation kit in collaboration with Nordic Semiconductor," said Frank Shemansky, senior director of product management of QuickLogic. "By combining our ultra-low power sensor hub that incorporates state-of-the art algorithm capability with Nordic's Bluetooth Smart technology, we can provide a comprehensive solution for a wearable reference design that is suitable for quick prototyping, as well as demonstration and testing of activity monitoring, context and gesture algorithms."

"QuickLogic's unique, industry-leading low power sensor hub capability is a perfect complement to our ultra-low power wireless technology," said Thomas Embla Bonnerud, director of product management at Nordic. "This new evaluation kit will enable OEMs to implement our combined technology and deliver wearable products to end users with a complete set of capabilities, while reducing time-to-market."

Availability
The TAG-N Wearable Sensor Hub evaluation kit, part number QL-TAG-N-S2, is available today and priced at $249. For more information, please visit www.quicklogic.com/solutions/reference-designs/tag-n
