American experts share experience in designing BLE boosters


TVU – Dr. David Nghiem and Mr. Arthur Jason Nghiem, two American experts, visit Tra Vinh University on August 22, 2023, to share their knowledge with lecturers from the School of Engineering and Technology on the topic of “A simple design to increase BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to improve the wireless pacemaker system.”

Welcoming the delegation are Dr. Phan Quoc Nghia, Vice President of the University; leaders of the School of Engineering and Technology; along with lecturers, students, and leaders of the School of Medicine and Pharmacy.

The two experts shared with lecturers and students how to create simple technological devices that boost BLE to improve the performance of the wireless pacemaker system. According to the experts, Bluetooth is used often in everyday life. Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) are both part of Bluetooth 4.0. BLE is not an upgrade on Bluetooth Classic; rather, it is a brand-new technology that makes use of the Bluetooth brand and focuses on the Internet of Things (IoT) applications that require slower data transfer rates for modest quantities of data.

This technology is used as a “bridge” to help smart devices within a short distance connect with each other. BLE technology is currently used to offer seamless experiences on almost all smart devices, including mobile phones, wireless headphones, computers, watches, and fitness trackers.

Dr. Phan Quoc Nghia expressed his gratitude to Dr. David Nghiem for his significant contributions to the growth of Tra Vinh University in general and the School of Engineering and Technology in particular. This is the foundation for the development of the University in Industry 4.0. The Vice Rector hopes to maintain gaining the attention and modern scientific knowledge of scientists and expatriates, assisting students and lecturers in accessing and learning more specialized knowledge, global advanced technologies, as well as their applicability.


Also, Dr. David Nghiem and Mr. Arthur Jason Nghiem present on this occasion ten scholarships, each worth five million VND, to students of the School of Engineering and Technology who have achieved good academic results under difficult circumstances.
