Analog Devices MEMS Technology Enables Withings Pulse Activity Tracker
Smart accessory for a healthy lifestyle integrates ADXL362 MEMS accelerometer for high performance, longer battery life.
NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance
semiconductors for signal processing applications, announced today that the ADXL362 MEMS accelerometer is integrated into
the Pulse activity tracker developed by Withings, a company that creates smart products and apps to help people easily take
care of their health and well-being. The Pulse activity tracker is a pocket-sized tool designed to help users to achieve their
personal health and fitness goals. It offers a range of monitoring features, from tracking the number of steps and the distance
traveled, to calculating the number of calories burned, measuring heart rate and detecting the quality of sleep. Watch a video
about the ADXL362 low power accelerometer:
"The Withings Pulse activity tracker lets you
understand and analyze your fitness, and
that's the first step to improving it. The quality
of Analog Devices' MEMS motion sensing
technology that we've managed to fit into this
tiny device and the exceptional battery life it
provides makes it the perfect companion for a
healthy lifestyle," said Eric Carreel, president
and co-founder of Withings.
Withings needed technology that offered a
high performance solution combined with ultralow power consumption for a longer battery life
and enhanced user autonomy. As the
industry's lowest power MEMS accelerometer,
the Analog Devices ADXL362 MEMS
accelerometer was a good choice.

The 3-axis, ADXL362 MEMS digital accelerometer consumes less than 2 µA at a 100-Hz output data rate and 270 nA when in
slower sampling wake-up mode, consuming up to an order of magnitude lower power than competing MEMS accelerometers.
The MEMS accelerometer includes an activity detection function that distinguishes between different kinds of motion and
prevents the sensor from turning the system on unnecessarily and using additional battery life.
