Hexiwear platform combines the style and usability found in high-end consumer devices, with the functionality and expandability of sophisticated engineering development platforms, making Hexiwear the ideal form factor for the IoT edge node and wearable markets. Completely open-source and developed by MikroElektronika in partnership with NXP®. the Hexiwear hardware includes the low power, high performance Kinetis® K6x Microcontroller based on ARM Cortex-M4 core, the Kinetis KW40Z multimode radio SoC, supporting BLE in Hexiwear. The Hardware features included 6 on-board sensors such as Optical Heart Rate Monitor, Accelerometer and Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Temperature, Humidity, light and Pressure sensors. Hexiwear also includes Color OLED Display, Rechargeable battery and External flash memory.
Hexiwear is supported with its own application for Android and iOS, so customers can connect the device to the cloud straight out of the box, without any additional software development. Hexiwear uses FreeRTOS, the Kinetis software development kit (SDK) and the Kinetis Design Studio IDE.
The Hexiwear platform is designed to be expandable and it's a great development solution. Designed for expansion with easy access to SPI, I2C and other serial interfaces for customization. It's easy developing with Hexiwear and its docking station, you can add from nearly 200 sensors through click boards™ which comes with example code to get you started in minutes.
