InvenSense™ Announces Turnkey Commercial Grade Wearable Platform for Health and Fitness

BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--

InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE:INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking sensor system on chip (SoC) and Sound devices, announces a turnkey wearable platform solution intended to substantially shorten the time-to-market for any OEM or ODM. The InvenSense wearable platform solution integrates all of the key functions of a health and fitness wearable device including Motion sensors, Pressure sensor, Microcontroller Unit (MCU), and BlueTooth Low Energy (BLE). This platform incorporates the InvenSense embedded Automatic Activity Recognition (AAR) software library, which efficiently manages both the key software and hardware components allowing for 'AlwaysOn' activity recognition.

Combining InvenSense's low-power 6-axis MotionTracking SoC with the advanced AAR software library enables detection of a broader set of activities such as: stationary, walk, run, bike, elliptical, and sleep on a wrist-worn wearable device. The AAR software library also provides accurate pedometer and elevation tracking. Along with software libraries, the InvenSense wearable platform solution includes the Gerber files, BOM, layout, circuit schematics, and XY coordinates that allow the customer to bring its own soluton to commercial production. All essential software elements required for a commercial product release are provided. This efficient turnkey solution allows up to 7 days of battery life (70mAH battery) with 24/7 activity recognition.


"In the era of health and fitness wearables, InvenSense is enabling a fast growing ecosystem of developers, operators, brands, big data services, healthcare providers, sports retailers, and fashion designers by providing a commercial grade platform that substantially reduces time to market," said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense.
