ZGLZ1BA Datasheet - Sharing is Caring

zOrigin is an ultra-small, wireless wearable made with our new chip-stacking technology. At the heart of zOrigin is ZGLZ1BA, the first commercially available example of creating a customized SoC using ZiP technology.

We believe in our design methodology, and we want you to be as confident in our product as we are. Therefore, we are releasing the ZGLZ1BA datasheet.

Here are some quick specs of ZGLZ1BA:

  • 32-bit ARM Cortex M0 processor
  • 2.4 GHz BLE radio
  • Lithium-based battery charger
    • Fast charge currents down to 7.5 mA
  • 3-Axis accelerometer
    • 14-bit resolution
  • Contact-based heart rate sensor
    • ECG capable low power AFE
    • 10-bit ADC resolution
  • Two LED drivers with programmable patterns
  • Thermistor-based temperature monitor
  • Vibration motor controller
    • Smallest vibration motor compatible
  • RoHS compliant
  • Reverse battery protection
  • Thermal shutdown protection
  • Short circuit protection

ZGLZ1BA is made possible with these chiplets:

  • Dialog Semiconductor DA14585 - microcontroller with BLE
  • SiTime SiT1552 32 kHz oscillator
  • MCube MC3672 - accelerometer
  • Macronix MX25R2035F - flash memory
  • Maxim Integrated MAX77734 - power management IC (PMIC)
  • Analog Devices AD8233 - heart rate analog front end (AFE)

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us a message and we will be in touch!

Product Choices



An incredibly small, ready-to-use fitness tracking fob that measures heart rate, temperature, and footsteps. Comes with 3D-printed enclosure, battery, charging cable, quickstart guide, and smartphone app.


zOrigin Dev Board

This dev board breaks out and makes easily accessible all the pins and functionality of the ZGLZ1 chip, the custom ZiP that powers the zOrigin. Includes a PMOD connector, and two electrode pads and cables for heart rate monitoring.


Five-pack of ZGLZ1BA Chips

Prototype your own projects using the same chip as used in zOrigin. Each chip is ten-by-ten, 0.8-mm-pitch BGA package measuring 8.7 mm x 9.1 mm.


zOrigin Deluxe Kit

Includes one of each of the above pledge levels: one zOrigin, one zOrigin Dev Board, and one Five-pack of ZGLZ1BA Chips.



We stack chips on demand by integrating the essential pieces of any connected things - processing, sensing, memory, and communication into one chip - giving unlimited freedom for creating things that are smaller, faster, and cheaper than what standard SoC and PCB integration technologies can offer. We help you build you next big thing, with quality, speed, and scalability.
