500mA regulator ICs achieve industry-low dropout voltages

500mA regulator ICs achieve industry-low dropout voltages
Toshiba has launched a series of 500mA LDO Regulator ICs that achieve the industry’s lowest-in-class drop-out voltages. The devices are suitable for power management applications in smartphones, tablets and other battery operated devices including wearables. To increase efficiency of these LDOs special attention is put on minimising the drop-out voltage at high output current and low output voltage operation.

Three markets will drive wearables, says Yole

“Three device types are expected to successfully reach the market: smartwatches, smart glasses/HUD and smart clothing,” announces Yole Développement. In its Sensors for Wearable Electronics & Mobile Healthcare report released in July, Yole’s analysts explain that wearable is, without a doubt, a promising industry. But who will take benefit of this attracting market, growing from $22bn in 2015 to more than $90bn by 2020?

Forget fingerprints, you can pay with your heartbeat

Forget fingerprints, you can pay with your heartbeat
Since the advent of biometric authentication, a myriad of devices have been introduced in an attempt to replace traditional cash and cards, including fingerprint and iris scanners. Now there is a new method available using heartbeats. The Nymi Band is a secure, wearable authenticator that increases convenience and security through continuous, biometrically authenticated, proximity-based access control.

Efficient algorithm can detect lung problems

Efficient algorithm can detect lung problems
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed an efficient algorithm that can interpret the wheezing of patients with breathing difficulties to give medical providers information about what’s happening in the lungs. The research is part of a larger, ongoing project to develop wearable smart medical sensors for monitoring, collecting and interpreting personal health data.

Making wearable tech a reality

Making wearable tech a reality
Despite the hype around wearable tech at the start of 2015, six months in to the year, mainstream adoption of wearable tech remains slow. Smartwatches, whilst widely available on the market, continue to be viewed as a smartphone peripheral, rather than a product in their own right. Meanwhile, Google’s high-profile Glass project has actually taken a step back, ending all sales of devices to the public.

Fibre-like LED can be applied in wearable displays

Fibre-like LED can be applied in wearable displays
Professor Kyung-Cheol Choi and his research team from the School of Electrical Engineering at KAIST have developed fibre-like LEDs, which can be applied in wearable displays. The research findings were published online in the July 14th issue of Advanced Electronic Materials. Traditional wearable displays were manufactured on a hard substrate, which was later attached to the surface of clothes.
