Low-power IoT Bluetooth technology developer Atmosic announced that it has developed a reference design for eBadge applications in collaboration with E Ink Holdings.
Atmosic will offer the power-optimized eBadge reference design, featuring one of E Ink’s 2.9” or 3.7” black and white displays, or 4.1” Gallery Palette color displays. The kit utilizes Atmosic’s M series extreme low-power Bluetooth LE platform, enabling long, multiyear battery life which can be extended by using optional on-chip energy harvesting.
Atmosic says that a single CR2032 coin cell battery will enable over 3 years of usage with three image changes per day. The use of energy harvesting can give the eBadge virtually unlimited battery life.
