A chip that would allow you to wear fitness trackers and other health monitoring devices on your clothing has been introduced by Broadcom.
The BCM4771 Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) system-on-chip (SoC) promises to open new development opportinities in the wearable tech space.
Mohamed Awad, director of marketing for Broadcom said “Today’s wearables like fitness trackers have surged in popularity, but often miscalculate speed and distance. As the largest supplier of discrete GNSS solutions, Broadcom brings its location expertise to deliver more precise fitness and health measurements to the accelerating wearable market.”
