"Microchip is continuing to release new innovative tools to enable more IoT developers to get their differentiated products to market, faster," said Rod Drake, vice president of Microchip's 32-bit MCU business unit. "This new demonstration platform not only triggers an opportunity to inspire more IoT developers to design next-generation products, the platform also highlights innovative ways of integrating sensor technology with a low-power MCU and connectivity for applications running on traditional coin cell batteries."
"Microchip's new BLE sensor node platform provides an excellent demo for sensing systems in next-generation IoT applications," said Jeanne Forget, vice president Marketing, Bosch Sensortec. "With the latest applications in personal health and fitness, indoor navigation, wearables, gaming, context awareness and augmented reality, sensors are required for a more immersive experience, and our sensors enable this experience for tomorrow's applications."
