INTRINSYC TECHNOLOGIES INTRODUCES SYSTEM ON MODULE AND DEVELOPMENT KIT FOR NEXT GENERATION WEARABLES BASED ON QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON WEAR 2100 PLATFORM; ULTRA-SMALL FORM FACTOR (15MM X 31.5MM) SUPPORTS FEATURES FOR NEXT-GEN WEARABLE DEVICES
Intrinsyc Technologies Corp. has introduced the company's Open-Q 2100 system on module (SOM) and its companion Open-Q 2100 development kit. Intrinsyc's Open-Q 2100 SOM is an ultrasmall form-factor (15 millimetres by 31.5 millimetres) computing module based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform which will be available in May, 2017. Intrinsyc's Open-Q 2100 SOM combines critical elements for wearable device innovation and performance: processing capability, size, power efficiency, sensor integration and connectivity. It is ideally suited for smart watches, as well as for pet, children and elderly trackers, sports watches, high-end fitness trackers, connected headsets, smart eyewear, and more.
The Snapdragon Wear 2100 that powers the Open-Q 2100 SOM is designed to facilitate thinner, sleeker product designs. An integrated, ultralow-power sensor hub supports rich algorithms with superior accuracy, providing a cohesive picture of users and their environments. The Snapdragon Wear 2100 uses 25 per cent less power than its predecessor, extending the wearable's battery life and offering manufacturers more freedom to innovate in features and design.
