Tech Companies Target Temperature-Monitoring Patches for COVID-19


A group of tech companies is working on a patch about the size of small bandage that could be worn to monitor for the elevated body temperatures that can sometimes signal the onset of COVID-19.

The patch would be powered by a specially designed microchip that will be made in Minnesota at a chip factory operated by SkyWater Technology in collaboration with Ohio-based chip design firm Linear ASICs and New York investment firm Asymmetric Return Capital. The patch is intended to be worn on the skin and to connect wirelessly to a smart phone to monitor a person’s body temperature, the companies said.  Read the article in The NY Times: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-quicklogic-idUKKBN2321H2
