Bluetooth 4 Universal Wireless Sensor Development Platform Suits Security, Health and Fitness Apps
BlueRadios, Inc. introduced a Bluetooth 4.0 Universal Button Sensor reference design for motion-, temperature- and light-sensing applications. Featuring an integrated Kionix KXTF9 tri-axis accelerometer — which provides static and dynamic acceleration and activity monitoring — the BlueRadios Low-Energy Programmable Universal Button Sensor reference design also includes an ambient light sensor and a temperature sensor. This multi-sensor development platform supports the design of a wide range of applications, including wireless home/commercial security-detection systems and pedometers. The programmable universal button sensor is based on BlueRadios n, BR-LE4.0-S2A a completely self-contained Bluetooth low-energy nano ampere network module that uses the Texas Instruments CC2540 system-on-chip, integrating an antenna, radio, microcontroller, and software stack into an 11.8 mm x17.6 mm x1.9 mm package.
