Microchip Technology's blend of wireless and touch technologies uses the human body as wiring.
Microchip Technology has come up with a blend of wireless and touch technologies that allows for a highly secure, bidirectional data link between a central controller and one or more wireless units. In this link, your body acts as the wiring.
Introduced today at the Embedded World conference in Germany, the BodyCom technology provides an alternative to traditional wireless proximity systems for secure communications. Microchip says its alternative uses less power, has a smaller bill of materials, and can be more secure than other short-range secure wireless communications.
