BlueRadios, a pioneer in producing embeddable wireless products and data modules, has declared the availability of a Bluetooth 4.0 Universal Button Sensor reference design that can be used for a number of purposes such as light, temperature and motion sensing applications.
The Universal Button Sensor, consisting of a temperature sensor and an ambient light sensor, can be used in pedometers and wireless security-detection equipment in both commercial and residential areas.
According to President and founder of BlueRadios, Mark Kramer, the Universal Button Sensor reference design has an average power consumption of 30 uA, which is equal to saving 330 days of battery life when utilizing a CR2032 coin cell battery.
Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Kionix, Kenneth Salky stated that the Programmable Universal Button Sensor from BlueRadios is capable of delivering crucial parameters such as form factor, power and performance to original equipment manufacturers for designing wireless multiple sensors. Salky added that the Universal Button Sensor provides both multi-sensor functionality and energy-efficiency. He further informed that Kionix supplied the tri-axis accelerometer to BlueRadios to enhance the motion-sensing capabilities of the multi-sensors.
