Microchip announces BodyCom™ Technology

By on March 5, 2013

Microchip’s BodyCom™ Technology is a short-range, low-data-rate communication solution for securely connecting to a wide range of wireless applications. Activated by capacitively coupling to the human body, the system communicates bidirectionally between a centralized controller and one or more wireless mobile units. Intra-body communication occurs utilizing the human body as the transmission medium.

At Embedded World conference in Germany, Microchip Technology Inc.  presented a new solution –  BodyCom™ technology – which provides designers with the world’s first framework for using the human body as a secure communication channel. The technology works thanks a clever  human body capacitively coupling method.  This solution enables a broad range of applications where secure wireless communication is essential.

Compared to existing wireless methods BodyCom  technology also promises  lower energy consumption.
