STMi­cro­elec­tron­ics’ chips em­bed­ded in tracker phone for kids and se­niors

Electronics Bazaar - - New Products -

Mo­tion-sens­ing and data-pro­cess­ing chips from STMi­cro­elec­tron­ics, a global semi­con­duc­tor leader serv­ing cus­tomers across the spec­trum of elec­tron­ics ap­pli­ca­tions, help in­crease fam­ily safety in the Snow­fox tracker phone. This is a two-way por­ta­ble com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vice with lo­cat­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties de­signed for chil­dren and se­niors by Hal­tian, a Fin­nish de­sign and engi­neer­ing startup. The match­box-sized, easy-to-carry tracker phone maps its wear­ers’ lo­ca­tion in real-time, in ad­di­tion to let­ting con­cerned fam­ily mem­bers call them. A sim­ple one-but­ton con­trol on the de­vice prompts no­ti­fi­ca­tions and call re­quests to fam­ily mem­bers, who can mon­i­tor their loved ones through a free smart­phone app that of­fers var­i­ous map views, lo­ca­tion his­tory, and event time­lines.

ST’s MEMS ac­celerom­e­ter in­side the tracker phone de­tects user ac­tiv­ity to start the lo­ca­tion mea­sure­ments while the ul­tra-low-power STM32 mi­cro­con­troller makes sure ev­ery­thing works re­li­ably on min­i­mal en­ergy use. The real-time per­for­mance and power ef­fi­ciency of ST chips gives Snow­fox users a good bal­ance of func­tion­al­ity and bat­tery life. Con­tact: www.snow­fox­fam­ily.com
