IOT747 and AntennaWare Launch Reference Design for Wearable Applications


IOT747, a Cambridge based leading supplier of wireless modules and solutions are pleased to announce the partnership with AntennaWare. The partnership integrates AntennaWare BodyWave™ 2.4GHz antenna with the IDC737 Bluetooth® module in an example reference design for long-range and wearable applications.

IDC737 incorporates the newest range of Qualcomm® chips, enables multi-connections, can transmit as well as receive Audio and Data over Bluetooth simultaneously.

AntennaWare provides solutions that outperform current industry standard devices. As the only antenna specifically designed for wearables, BodyWave antenna technology has the highest performance on the market, with increased radiation efficiency, increased detuning immunity and a unique BodyWave propagation.

Combining IDC737 with an AntennaWare BodyWave enables an increase in range by up to 20dB.
