Multi-protocol ANT plus Bluetooth low energy combo SoC

Nordic and ANT Wireless are developing an nRF51 Series ANT+ and Bluetooth low energy combo chip

Nordic and ANT Wireless are developing an nRF51 Series ANT+ and Bluetooth low energy combo chip. The new IC will join Nordic Semiconductor's recently released nRF51 Series and complement the company's already released standalone nRF51822 Bluetooth low energy and nRF51422 ANT+ SoCs with an additional SoC that supports both technologies concurrently. ANT+ is an important interoperable ULP (ultra-low power) wireless technology with currently over 30 million devices in the market and a particular strength in the sports-&-fitness and health-&-wellness segments. Proven application examples include: bicycle power, bicycle speed and cadence, fitness equipment, stride-based speed and distance, multi-sport speed and distance, blood-pressure monitoring, heart-rate monitoring, weight scales, geocaching, audio control, fitness equipment, light electric vehicles, and temperature control. In parallel there has been a rapid adoption of Bluetooth low energy in the smartphone, tablet, and PC space including the Apple iPhone, iPad, and Mac OS X; Samsung Galaxy SIII; and Microsoft Windows 8.
