DesignWare IP for Wearable Fitness & Health Applications


Wearable devices are expected to dramatically improve the way we interact with our environment and manage our personal health and wellness. Accurate, efficient and innovative sensing is fundamental to ensuring these devices provide essential information and actions. Examples include sleep patterns, distance travelled, heart rate, blood glucose, oxygen content, blood pressure, and a myriad of things that may have not been thought of yet.

The SoCs that drives these wearable applications require robust IP solutions that deliver small form factors as well as performance efficiency.
