Samsung Electronics has integrated Dialog Semiconductor plc’s Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) into the latest Galaxy Fit fitness tracker.
The Galaxy Fit is a wearable that allows users to keep track of their fitness goals and also offers sleep analysis and stress management technology. The wearable uses Dialog’s DA14697 wireless microcontroller unit within Dialog’s DA1469x SmartBond line.
The DA1469x family offers high power, range and battery life for connected consumer applications such as fitness trackers and other wearable devices. The line is based on the ARM Cortex-M33 processor and is equipped with a sensor node controller (SNC) to conserve power that runs autonomously and wakes the application processor when needed. Additionally, a power management unit activates the different processing cores as required.
