QN908x is an ultra-low power, high performance and highly integrated Bluetooth 5 certified Low Energy solution for Bluetooth Smart applications such as sports and fitness, human interface devices, and app-enabled smart accessories. It is specially designed for wearable electronics with a small capacity battery.   The QN908x MCU family was launched in July 2017 with rev. C silicon. With the broad interest in QN908x, we decided to solve some issues listed in errata that can benefit customers ...
Near Field Communications (NFC), even though used in dozens of applications from contactless payment to healthcare, and billions of NFC ICs, readers, and tags are in use globally, studies continue to show that many, even very inexpensive, products that could benefit from it have yet to do so.   The use of NFC in inexpensive products, of which there are thousands, recently got more appealing thanks to a microcontroller within NXP’s LPC800 series introduced last October targeted spec ...
The breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will bring massive social consequences, transforming the modern life by reshaping several industries —transportation, health, science, or finance. The transition is rising new challenges (from rebuilding infrastructure or developing new cyber-security systems and networks, to crafting new laws and regulations) for scientists and engineers, policymakers and government, and also to the public.   The When Will AI Exceed Human Performance ...
Over the past years, few leading tech companies have acquired most of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) startups in Silicon Valley, consolidating some of the best AI teams in the world but slowing down the AI advantage in other industries of harvesting information from large datasets —one of the most significant AI-based opportunities. IMAGE: Race to acquire Top AI startups - CB Insights     The strategy for some leading tech companies is to bring the talent in-house and figur ...
As an end user of many connect electronic devices, I often find myself questioning just how secure are these devices and the communication between them.  Luckily, I know that there are many smart engineers out there ready to tackle that problem, including my colleague, Donnie Garcia, Solutions Architect for Security and IoT at NXP.  He is first to admit that there is no simple answer, turnkey solution or magic spell to fix all of the end-to-end security flaws already built into our emb ...
