On Thursday afternoon, the very talented World Chess Champion will play a simul against 20 opponents in an auditorium. Magnus Carlsen, and his opponents, will all be hooked to a special wireless pulse gauge that uses Bluetooth Low Energy chips, says Managing Director, Nordic Semiconductor, Svein Tore Larsen.
Nordic Semiconductor is an industry leader in ultra low-power wireless devices. With a world-class mixed-signal R&D team Nordic develops innovative ground-breaking devices for Bluetooth low energy, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary markets. The ARM Cortex M-series lie at the core of Nordic's highly flexible, ultra low-power wireless SoC solutions.

Ultra-low power (ULP) wireless sensors that are small enough to be worn on the body are transforming the sports & fitness world by making it easy to track and log training data – such as heart-rate, speed, and distance – and share the results on-line with others. This benefits everyone from elite athletes seeking to fine-tune their training regimes to those who simply want to get fit and stay motivated by seeing the results of their hard work.

Typical products in this segment are:Wearable sensors
Heart-rate belts
Speed-distance foot pods
GPS pods
Activity sensors
Bike cadence sensors
Bike speed sensors
Bike power sensors
Weight scales
