Reference platform speeds up wearable design

07 January 2014

WaRP (Wearables Reference Platform) is the  result of collaboration between Freescale, Kynetics and Revolution Robotics.

Kynetics provides the expertise for the platform’s software, and Revolution Robotics supplies the solution’s hardware. The hybrid architecture-based platform enables customers to scale and customise designs from both a hardware and software perspective.

The system-level design kit supports embedded wireless charging, incorporates processors and sensors within a hybrid architecture for scalability and flexibility, and comes with open-source software.

The platform is built on Freescale’s i.MX 6SoloLite ARM Cortex-A9 apps processor as the core processing unit, supports the Android OS, and integrates production-grade silicon, software and hardware. The hybrid architecture also features Freescale’s Xtrinsic MMA9553 turn-key pedometer,FXOS8700 electronic compass and ARM Cortex-M0+ Kinetis KL16 microcontroller.
The wearables reference platform kit includes the main board, a daughter card, an LCD display battery and a micro USB cable.
