Telink adds security inside BLE chip; Releases updated SDK for Apple’s HomeKit

Telink Semiconductor has released the updated version of its Bluetooth Low Energy Software Development Kit (BLE SDK) for Apple HomeKit. The single chip solution featuring built-in security key authentication and the updated SDK is now available to any Apple HomeKit licensees for developing products and accessories. Apple devices using HomeKit can now communicate with and control Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices in the home, such as smart locks, lights, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems, and sensors, and more. The Apple HomeKit ecosystem is designed in a way that works around existing iOS devices, with iPad acting as the hub and hence doesnot need a central hub device. HomeKit acts as the interface that ties all the devices in the network together and allows the devices can communicate with each other. HomeKit devices work exclusively on either Bluetooth or WiFi; and there are rigorous encryption requirements to enable a secure environment, and specific chip set requirements are needed to achieve certification. Communications between products using HomeKit is done locally rather than having to transmit data via the cloud. Apple’s emphasis on secur...

REVIEW: Accessorize your outfit with the best in technology

I realized something about my dressing habits recently. Aside from my shoes, bag, and jewelry, I wonder how the gadgets I use suit my look. At the airport and on the plane during my last trip, I noticed how phone straps no longer look utilitarian, or cutesy with cartoon characters. People now carry their phones like a crossbody/shoulder bag—the phone cases have a stylish strap that complements their outfits. In Berlin, I saw people holding their phones this way, thanks partly to a brand called Ring My Bell. The Berlin-based label improved on the usual phone hangings, with different straps: leather, chain, suspender, and parachute with TPU cases in black, white, dark green and blue. You can get any of the preselected case-and-strap combinations, or make your own by getting the case and strap separately. Plus, there’s a metal plate in the middle of the case where you can have something engraved. I got the Bing Bing, which has a gold aluminum chain and a pine-green case that adds texture to everyday wear and also looks elegant on a little black dress or any formal ensemble. As for watches, I didn’t mind ditching the usual analog options for my Fitbit Inspire HR. It’s sleek and giv...
