Employing Nordic’s nRF51822 SoC, Veta Smart Case & App keeps individuals living with severe food allergies and anaphylaxis close to their life-saving medicine and connected to their supporting network of family and friends
Nordic’s nRF51822 is a powerful and flexible multiprotocol SoC ideally suited for Bluetooth LE and 2.4GHz ultra low-power wireless applications. The nRF51822 is built around a 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU, 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio, and 256kB/128kB Flash and 32kB/16kB RAM. The SoC is supplied with Nordic’s S130 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 4.2 qualified concurrent multi-link protocol stack solution supporting simultaneous Central/Peripheral/Broadcaster/Observer role connections.
“Aterica selected Nordic because they provided the best combination of managed low power, radio sensitivity, price, performance, and memory capacity that enabled Aterica engineers to create an exceptional user experience across a complex, secure system,” says Adrian Fung, Director of Engineering and Manufacturing of Aterica. “Nordic’s team and software support in diagnosis of complex software and hardware interaction issues was one of the areas where they definitely reinforced their credibility.”
“We found Nordic to be a responsive and professional company to work with,” says Alex Leyn, President and CEO of Aterica. “The support and relationship with Nordic’s application engineering, factory technical support, and commercial team were, and remain, fantastic.”
“Veta Smart Case is a novel product that clearly demonstrates how the application of Bluetooth LE wireless can make medical conditions easier to manage, in this case, assisting families and improving lives of those prone to severe allergic reactions,” says Geir Langeland, Director of Sales & Marketing at Nordic Semiconductor. “Nordic’s technology is particularly suitable for medical applications because it offers a high performance/cost ratio and the software architecture’s code separation allows designers to focus on a superior application.”
