SWATCH GROUP R & D and the Swiss Cen­ter for Elec­tron­ics and Mi­crotech­nol­ogy (CSEM) have cre­ated the world’s small­est Blue­tooth chip on the mar­ket.

The chip, which con­sists of more than 5 mil­lion tran­sis­tors on a sur­face of about 5 square mil­lime­tres, has al­ready qual­i­fied to meet the lat­est Blue­tooth stan­dard, ver­sion 5.0.

Swatch Group claim that it is not just the small­est Blue­tooth chip on the mar­ket, but that it has the low­est en­ergy con­sump­tion and its high-speed start-up ca­pa­bil­ity is un­par­al­leled com­pared to com­peti­tors.

“This in­no­va­tion demon­strates once again the Group’s tech­no­log­i­cal ex­cel­lence and its mi­cro-tech­no­log­i­cal know-how. Swatch Group is also one of the world lead­ers in cir­cuits and sys­tems with very low en­ergy con­sump­tion, as well as in tech­nolo­gies adapted to small con­nected ob­jects (the In­ter­net of Things),” read a state­ment from the Swatch Group.

De­signed for max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity, it can work alone or in con­junc­tion with var­i­ous sen­sors and has been de­signed to meet the needs of small con­nected ob­jects, in par­tic­u­lar with watches.

The plat­form will be built around a com­pletely new and be­spoke op­er­at­ing sys­tem, stated Swatch Gorup and CSEM, who are work­ing to­gether to de­velop a unique Swiss-made ecosys­tem.
