Critical to the WDK1.0 is its wireless connectivity, which is addressed via an ultra-lower power nRF52832 multi-protocol system-on-chip (SoC) from Nordic Semiconductor. This features a 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ processor core and a 2.4GHz transceiver - offering support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and other relevant wireless technologies. The kit is complemented by a SmartApp which can be downloaded directly from Android PlayStore and Apple AppStore. Using this, various pieces of information can be transposed, such as the steps taken, calories burnt, distance covered and activity period, as well as human machine interface aspects like screen brightness adjustment, clock face control, alarm settings and establishing fitness goals. An Eclipse-based IDE accompanies the kit. This presents engineering teams with all the resources they need to rapidly create and subsequently debug code necessary for designs. A highly intuitive Project Wizard further facilitates the development process, by giving engineers access to numerous useful wearable-related project examples.The WDK1.0 solution also has a 1.44-inch format, 128 x 128 pixel TFT display into which a capacitive touch screen is integrated. A 26-pin expansion port complements all the other elements in the kit. Through this, there is ample provision for further additions to the system design, such as supplementary microcontroller, signal processing or GPS functionality, the inclusion of more sensors or the specifying of different display. Hardware schematics and Cadence EDA design files are also made available. Read the WDK 1.0 blog and visit the website for more detailed information.
