Integrated RuBee Asset Visibility Networks.
Visible designs and sells IEEE 1902.1, RuBee Tags, RuBee Routers, Dot-Tag Servers (Middleware Visibility Engine) and industry specific web enabled applications (20/20 Visibility Applications). Visible designs RuBee Chips and has several single chip solutions (iDot, xDot, and sDot), RuBee modems that can be used to create full Systems On a Chip (SOC) tags using the Seiko Epson MCU product line.
RuBee Chips are extraordinarily low power in standby mode (nano amps) and minimal power when receiving or sending data (micro amps) and use a simple, very small cost competitive layout with only 952 thousand transistors.
RuBee Tag Basics and Form Factors
Visible designs and produces all RuBee based integrated circuits internally. We have a standard RuBee modem chip that works with the Epson/Seiko MCU product lines and a custom State Machine/Amp chip for sensor waveform processing. We have an optional chip for high security applications requiring authentication that includes a full microprocessor with a CPU. Most RuBee tags, especially tags that use sensors or have advanced storage requirements, use this modem MCU combination. These RuBee tags are tiny data servers that manage local information intelligently with sophisticated firmware. Each tag has an IP address, as well as subnet addresses, MAC address and 256 bytes of static memory. RuBee Tags can be about the size of a postage stamp, but also come in much larger form factors for rugged applications. The RuBee tag seen on left has a range of about 8 feet, and a battery life of 5 years, it is waterproof and sealed.
These tags are designed for asset visibility applications and maybe attached to almost anything that moves. Larger tags provide longer range. Tags may have sensors for temperature, motion, light humidity, and other analytes. Tags may also have optional buttons, LEDs and small LCD displays.
RuBee Tags are Tiny Packet Based Servers, with a Controller and Memory
Visible also has several reduced function RuBee chips (xDot) that limited memory, with 16 x 32 bit read write registers. xDot's are used where sensors are not required and data storage is minimal.
