Nordic Semiconductor ASA will demonstrate ULP 2.4GHz wireless connectivity solutions for smart home, security, sports & fitness, and toy sectors at DESIGN West this week. Nordic's reference designs and sample applications provide designers with a starting point and ready-built design framework to accelerate development of nRF24L Series 2.4GHz proprietary, ANT+, and Bluetooth Smart applications and accessories. In addition, Nordic will be demonstrating RF modules developed by leading Japanese ODMs Hosiden Corporation and Fujitsu Component. The modules are based on Nordic's nRF51822 Bluetooth low energy and 2.4GHz proprietary System-on-Chip (SoC) and are supplied complete with Nordic's verified and qualified Bluetooth low energy stack.
The nRFready Desktop 2 is a combined Bluetooth low energy 2.4GHz wireless mouse and keyboard 'combo' reference design and the nRFready Smart Remote 2 is a complete hardware and software remote control reference design featuring a multi-touch touchpad, 6-axis motion sensing, and full QWERTY keyboard. Also demo'd will be heart rate monitors from leading ODMs such as Wahoo and National Electronics & Watch Company (NEWCO) based on Nordic's nRF51822 SoC and nRF51422 ANT SoC.
Nordic will also demo toys, including a proximity application demonstrating the concept of nRF24LE1-equipped dogs that bark when they move close to each other, and an nRF51822-equipped helicopter and race car that can be remotely controlled from an Apple iPhone.
The reference designs, applications, RF modules, and partner products are based on Nordic's nRF24L Series chips, ANT devices, and nRF51 Series multiprotocol SoCs. The nRF51 series SoC architecture is designed specifically to minimize average current consumption and enable single-chip implementations of a wide range of wireless applications.
