Alzheimer’s Wearable Assistant

A smartwatch with fall and location detection, reminders and more, designed to help you or your loved one with Alzheimer’s!

When I saw Infineon’s Sensor Hub Nano, it appeared to be a good candidate in such a project, because of its very small size and BLE capabilities. With the accurate pressure sensing, it could be used to detect if the patient has fallen and also tell where exactly the patient is in the house.

Infineon Technologies’ Infineon Designer, introduced at the 2016 electronica trade fair, is presented as the first online prototyping engine combining analogue and digital simulation functionalities in an internet application. By Graham Prophet@ edn.com:

Requiring a web browser only, it is an aid to designers in selecting the right product for a defined application. Infineon Designer works intuitively in a very short time, and neither installation nor licenses are needed. The program features application circuits in the domain of Industrial Power, Lighting, Motor Control and Mobile/RF frontend design. It enables analogue/digital co-simulation of the 32-bit XMC1000 industrial microcontroller ARM Cortex-M0 series, using the free-of-charge code generation platform DAVE.

Thomas Scherer @ elektormagazine.com shares the news about a CoolMOS Mosfet from Infineon.

The latest 800V CoolMOS P7 800V MOSFET from Infineon is based on their superjunction technology. The device is available in twelve classes of RDS(on) beginning with  0.28 Ω and in six package options. It is particularly suited to high voltage switching applications, flyback applications including adapter and charger, LED lighting, audio SMPS, AUX and industrial power.
