Mouser Electronics announced that it is now stocking the SmartBond DA14681 wearable development kit from Dialog Semiconductor. The flexible kit provides the hardware and software required to help manufacturers minimize time to market when creating next-generation wearable devices.
The Dialog SmartBond DA14681 wearable development kit comprises a complete hardware and software design for a wrist-worn wearable that offers heart-rate monitoring, activity tracking, and environmental sensing. The kit is based on the high-performance, low-power SmartBond DA14681 SoC, which combines flexible processing power for advanced applications, integrated battery charging, and data security. The kit features a complete range of sensors, including a 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope; 3-axis digital geomagnetic sensor; and a temperature, humidity and pressure sensor. With a 128×128-pixel ultra-low-power LCD screen, capacitive touch button, and support for NFC payment, the kit enables manufacturers to start prototyping without needing extra hardware.
Offering a user-friendly experience, the kit comes with a complete software package that is specifically designed for wearables, including royalty-free advanced algorithms for sensor fusion, activity classification, and sleep monitoring. With full documentation and tooling, the kit is easy to set up, allowing engineers to start prototyping out of the box.
