Intrinsyc® Technologies (TSX:ITC and OTC:ISYRF) Introduces System on Module and Development Kit for Next-Generation Wearables Based on Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 Platform
Ultra-small form factor (approx. 525mm2) Supports Features for Next-Gen Wearable Devices
VANCOUVER, B.C., June 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation (TSX:ITC) (OTC:ISYRF) (“Intrinsyc” or the “Company”), a leading provider of solutions for the development and production of embedded and Internet of Things (“IoT”) products; today announced the introduction of the Company’s Open‐Q™ 2500 System on Module (“SOM”) and its companion Open‐Q™ 2500 Development Kit. Intrinsyc’s Open-Q™ 2500 SOM is an ultra-small form-factor (approx. 525mm2) computing module based on the newly announced Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 2500 platform. Intrinsyc’s Open-Q™ 2500 SOM combines critical elements for wearable device innovation and performance: high performance, small size, low power, integrated sensors, and seamless connectivity. The SOM is designed to meet the needs across a range of Android based wearable devices including pet, children, and elderly trackers, high-end fitness trackers, smartwatches, connected headsets, smart eyewear, and more.
The Snapdragon Wear™ 2500 platform that helps to power the Open-Q™ 2500 SOM is designed to facilitate thinner, sleeker product designs. An integrated, ultra-low power sensor hub supports rich algorithms with superior accuracy, is engineered to provide a cohesive picture of users and their environments. To help extend battery life for wearables, the Snapdragon Wear™ 2500 platform incorporates a new wearable PMIC and new GaAs PAs, which supports reduced power consumption both on standby and when active.
