Dialog Semiconductor plc and Bosch Sensortec are collaborating on a low-power smart sensor platform that will be used for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The collaboration will combine Bosch’s sensors with Dialog’s Bluetooth Smart technology to create a low-power 12-DOF smart sensor reference platform for gesture recognition in wearable computing devices and immersive gaming such as augmented reality, 3D indoor mapping and navigation.
Dialog’s DA14580 Bluetooth smart system-on-chip (SoC) is combined with three low-power sensors including the BMM150 three-axis geo-magnetic field measurement, the BME280 pressure, humidity and temperature sensor and the six-axis BMI160 (a combination of a three-axis accelerometer and three-axis gyroscope in one chip).
Udo-Martin Gomez, CTO of Bosch Sensortec, says in a statement that the collaboration in the device will create many opportunities in the IoT market to deliver “smaller, highly integrated and more energy efficient smart connected solutions.”
