29 Oct 2008

CSR's BlueCore Bluetooth silicon provides wireless connectivity for the Team2 heart-rate monitoring system from Polar.

The system comprises up to 28 Bluetooth heart-rate monitors that link up to a PDA, PC or laptop to log and process the data via Bluetooth Access Server platform from Bluegiga.

The system is ideal for sports teams, research centers and universities to monitor and improve the performance of athletes, according to the two companies.

Bluetooth connectivity in the Polar Team2 system is provided by Bluegiga's WT11-A Class 1 module, which uses CSR's BlueCore4 silicon and Bluegiga iWRAP Bluetooth connectivity firmware.

Bluegiga's Access Server which is based on multiple CSR BlueCore4 chipsets, allows the system to wirelessly collect and analyze data from up to 28 players simultaneously.

This enables the heart rate monitors to achieve a battery life of up to 30 hours when using Bluetooth and a range of up to 100 meters - ideal for monitoring the players in field sports.

The Team2 heart-rate monitors are water resistant down to 30 meters, shock resistant and each system comes complete with PDAs and PC software for uploading the data and providing analysis.
