Sony Spresense - whats new?
One of the key new features of the Sony Spresense is the GPS add-on board, a powerful, low-power chip that allows users to conduct their evaluations before embedding the product into their devices. This GPS chip, originally designed for wearables like Garmin, Polar, and Fitbit, is known for its high accuracy, low power consumption, and small size, leading to long battery life.
One of the standout features of this board is its low voltage (0.5v!) RF technology, enabling continuous tracking at very low power. This technology is particularly useful for tracking pets and assets, where the device needs to be light, and the battery life needs to be long.
Sony's Spresense platform also comes with a comprehensive software ecosystem. Users can leverage the Arduino development kit or Sony's own C+ embedded environment for their projects. The platform also provides numerous examples and organizes hackathons with universities, fostering a vibrant community of developers.
