- Microchip's Wearable Bluetooth® Low Energy Pedometer Demonstration Board
Microchipâs wearable Bluetooth Low Energy pedometer reference design demo helps designers develop a low-cost, low-power, wearable pedometer with both an on-board LED display as well as Bluetooth Low Energy capability to connect to smartphones and tablets. This demo board can be used as a basic wearable step count activity tracker design, but it can also be used as a development platform for the design of more advanced activity tracker functions such as distance traveled or calories burned. Also, additional biometric measurement capability can be added using other Microchip medical reference demo designs.

- 8-bit MCUs Keep Getting Better With "Intelligent Analog" Features
8-bit MCUs just keep getting better and more integrated. Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo interviews Microchip's 8-bit MCU guru Greg Robinson. Among the new "intelligent analog" PIC16F170X/171X family's best features: two internal Op Amps and Zero Cross Detect--both analog features reduce board space and BOM cost. 10-bit ADC and 8-bit DACs plus a programmable pin crossbar make these 8-bangers some of the most innovative in the market.

- Rip Van Winkle Bluetooth Low Energy Wakes Up, Then Sleeps Again
Bluetooth Low Energy (LE, or BLE, or Smart) is all about sending and receiving data just like any other Bluetooth device, but doing so using much less power. It's ideally suited for M2M applications where a device wakes up, transmits or receives data, then goes back to sleep. The Bluetooth SIG specifies myriad application profiles from healthcare ("Blood Pressure Profile") to Sports and Fitness. At the recent DESIGN West 2013 conference, editor-in-chief Chris A. Ciufo got the lowdown on Laird's new BL600 Bluetooth LE Smart modules.
- Extension Media Interview with Microchip's Joe Drzewiecki
Editor Chris Ciufo spent time with Microchip software manager Joe Drzewiecki at the Spring DESIGN West show (formerly known as ESC). Microchip launched their new MPLAB X compiler strategy that now goes across all Microchip MCUs. It also adds a new license strategy, optimizations that compile 35 percent faster on 32-bit devices (or save 35 percent on code size). There's also a "totally free" version of the MPLAB X compiler. Check out the 3 minute video.

- Ambulance crew with Intel wireless, ruggedized platforms
Intel-powered devices are used throughout their shift, from the dispatch center to monitoring equipment to ruggedized laptops. Hear how an American Medical Response (AMR) ambulance crew explains that their ability transfer patient information wirelessly to the hospital before the patient arrives can save precious minutes in life-or-death situations.
- Nurse practitioner using Ultrabook
As our population grows older, technology plays a significant role in providing home-based care for people who have trouble getting to the doctor's office. Critical for "on-the-go" clinicians is a reliable computer that is lighter, faster, and "instant-on." This video provides a preview of what Intel-inspired Ultrabooks can bring to mobile health workers.
