Bluetooth 5.0 SoC from ON Semiconductor offers extremely low power consumption in wireless sensor applications
ON Semiconductor’s RSL10 is a complete Bluetooth® 5.0 wireless system-on-chip which offers outstandingly low power consumption in wireless sensors and other IoT applications.
An evaluation kit for the RSL10 is available free to qualified customers of Future Electronics.
The RSL10 is intended for use in applications which need to take advantage of the low-power characteristics of the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol. It is ideal for applications using 1.2V or 1.5V batteries, and supports a supply-voltage range between 1.1V and 3.3V without the need for an external DC-DC converter. Power consumption is the industry’s lowest in Deep Sleep mode (62.5nW) and Receive mode (7mW).
Other key features include:
- -94dBm sensitivity
- Up to +6dBm Transmit power
- Available in 5.5mm2 chip-scale package or 6mm x 6mm QFN
The RSL10 is suitable for applications including:
- Fitness and wellness monitors
- Smart watches
- Smart locks
- Home appliances
- Lighting equipment
The RSL10 includes two processor cores, an Arm® Cortex®-M3 controller core and an LPDSP32 for intensive signal-processing functions. It offers users the flexibility to support both Bluetooth Low Energy and 2.4GHz proprietary or custom protocols.
The SoC also features built-in power management, 384kbytes of Flash memory and configurable analogue and digital sensor interfaces. It provides an AES-128 encryption engine to protect data transmitted over the air.
