“What if your grandfather could manage his diabetes without using cumbersome test papers and confusing information? What if a 7-year-old child with diabetes does not have to face the tension or fear every time he pierces his finger? These are the obstacles that the current continuous blood glucose monitoring (CGM) technology has overcome, and they are also the problems that ADI has solved by...
Networks with technology from Wirepas, the Finnish software provider, are self-healing and freely scalable. Each device with a Thetis-I radio module can also act as a router which means no further infrastructure is required for mesh communication.
Würth Elektronik offers developers the Thetis-I Evaluation Kit. It contains an evaluation board, a USB radio stick, and three sensor nodes. Thanks to the tailored Wirepas Commander software, this kit can be operated and configured directly via a PC.
Thetis-I is based on the Nordic nRF52840 chipset and the proven proprietary 2.4 GHz radio module. The radio module, optimized for Wirepas networks, is extremely energy-saving and offers the choice between low-energy and low-latency modes.
The module, which measures just 8×12×2 mm, can be configured remotely using the freely available Wirepas Commander software. It supports authentication and encryption, stand-alone or host-controlled operation.
The wide range of potential applications can be tested using the Evaluation Kit. Wirepas technology enables easy connection to well-known cloud platforms. The slim evaluation board allows a controller board to be connected for developing applications.
A battery-powered sensor board equipped with the versatile WSEN-PADS pressure sensor and the WSEN-HIDS humidity sensor readily provides an application example for a mesh network.
Thetis-I and the Evaluation Kit are now available from stock without minimum order quantities. Individualized firmware versions can also be supplied on request.
