Infineon Technologies‘ Internet-of-Things (IoT) building blocks are becoming more powerful, energy-efficient, and smaller. Today, almost any everyday object can be enriched with smart functions to make life easier.
Using system solutions from Infineon, Deed — a tech start-up from Italy — has been able to create a screen-less, feature-rich, new wearable device. The sleek and elegant get bracelet interprets human gestures and uses biometric data, to pick up a call or to make payments.
“Semiconductor solutions from Infineon are at the heart of digital transformation and IoT innovation. They are the link between the real and the digital world,” said Thomas Rosteck, division president with Connected Secure Systems. “Infineon’s wide-angled commitment and easy-to-integrate IoT solutions give start-ups and developers the hardware and software they need to succeed..”
At the core of “get” is a system consisting of components from Infineon that enable the wearable with connectivity, computing, sensing and security capabilities.
- SECORA Connect empowers the bracelet with the payment functionality based on lowest power consumption to achieve longest battery life for the consumer.
- The XENSIV MEMS technology is the basis for the calling experience by providing high-fidelity voice recording during phone calls.
- The PSoC 6 microcontroller family uses a high-performance, dual-core M4/M0 architecture.
- Paired with Infineon’s AIROC Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Combos, it’s and ideal solution for secured, low-power, feature-rich IoT products.
“We wanted to build get as the next leap into wearable evolution,” said Edoardo Parini, CEO and founder of DEED. “The bracelet offers ‘pioneeristic’ features, with new and higher security standards, unique ID acquisition method for contactless payment and a revolutionary, screen-less user experience. It is the perfect bridge between ‘you‘ and ‘your’ digital-self!”
Patented techniques allow to create a seamless, ultralight and water resistant wearable made up of several layers of high-tech fabrics. Inside, there is a rigid-flex Printed Circuit Board (PCB).
The intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) allows for the most natural way to operate the wearable without having to swipe on screens or touch any display. Motion sensors with Artificial intelligence (AI), for gesture recognition allow to interpret human gestures, for example, to pick up a call, to check the time or to make payments.
Consumers can use it to listen to audio or answer calls by holding their finger to their ear by ‘wrist bone conduction,’ sending the sound through the body to the inner ear. Contactless payments can be released after individual electrocardiogram-based biometric identification. Besides that the bracelet also allows fitness and health monitoring.
