Deed has been able to create a screenless yet feature-rich wearable ‘get’ bracelet using Infineon Smart system solutions.
The sleek and elegant ‘get’ bracelet interprets human gestures and uses biometric data, to pick up a call or to make payments.
“Semiconductor solutions from Infineon are at the heart of digital transformation and IoT innovation. They are the link between the real and the digital world”, said Thomas Rosteck, Division President Connected Secure Systems. “Infineon’s wide-angled commitment and easy-to-integrate IoT solutions give start-ups and developers the hardware and software they need to succeed. We let them concentrate solely on their products and accelerate the time-to-market of innovative offerings.”
“We wanted to build ‘get’ as the next leap into wearable evolution,” said Edoardo Parini, CEO and founder of DEED. “The bracelet offers pioneeristic features, with new and higher security standards, unique ID acquisition method for contactless payment and a revolutionary, screenless user experience. It is the perfect bridge between ‘you ‘and ‘your’ digital-self!”
At the core of ‘get’ is a system consisting of components from Infineon that enable the wearable with connectivity, computing, sensing and security capabilities. SECORA Connect empowers the bracelet with the payment functionality based on the lowest power consumption to achieve the longest battery life for the consumer.
The XENSIV MEMS technology is the basis for the calling experience by providing high-fidelity voice recording during phone calls. The PSoC 6 microcontroller family utilizes a high-performance dual-core M4/M0 architecture. Paired with Infineon’s AIROC Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Combos, it is the perfect solution for secured, low-power, feature-rich IoT products.
Consumers can use it to listen to audio or answer calls by holding their finger to their ear by ‘wrist bone conduction’, sending the sound through the body to the inner ear.
Contactless payments can be released after individual electrocardiogram-based biometric identification. Besides that, the bracelet also allows fitness and health monitoring.
