CEVA, a licensor of signal processing IP for smarter, connected devices, and HMicro, a wireless solutions firm developing integrated products for medical, industrial and the broad Internet of Things, have announced that HMicro has licensed and deployed CEVA’s RivieraWaves Sense Wi-Fi IP in its WiPoint Wireless Technology platform.

The WiPoint platform was specifically designed to address the challenging requirements of wireless peripherals in healthcare and the broad Internet of Things (IoT), particularly areas demanding industrial grade reliability.

It integrates the RivieraWaves Wi-Fi IP together with HMicro developed RF/analog and other technologies including Ultra WideBand (UWB) and Medical Band (MB) radios to form a power-optimised triple-mode hybrid radio based solution that seamlessly transitions between the three options as needed, maximising link integrity and ensuring the lowest power option is chosen when more than one is available.

The Wi-Fi portion of the radio is optimised for excellent energy efficiency—days of continuous operation from a coin cell - enabling applications previously not feasible with Wi-Fi.

The WiPoint technology platform is already in design with leading medical equipment manufacturers developing wireless monitoring patches that sense patient vital signs and other metrics.
