Bluetooth 5 SiP module for easier connectivity

ON Semiconductor has added to its RSL10 family of Bluetooth 5 certified radio SoCs with a ready-to-use 6 x 8 x1.46 mm System-in-Package (SiP) module. [via]

The RSL10 SIP has a built-in antenna, RSL10 radio and the required passive components in a small package. Certified by the Bluetooth SIG, the RSL10 SIP cuts design time and development costs by removing RF design considerations.

The SiP combines the 2 Mbps Bluetooth 5 speeds and low power consumption. RSL10 consumes 62.5 nW while in deep sleep mode, and 7 mW peak receive power. The RSL10’s energy efficiency was validated by the EEMBC’s ULPMark where it became the first device to break 1,000 ULP Marks and produced Core Profile scores that doubled the scores of the previous industry leader.

ON Semiconductor RSL10 – Bluetooth® 5 System-on-Chip

Bringing the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth® low energy technology to IoT with a highly flexible multi-protocol 2,4 GHz radio RSL10 from ON Semiconductor.

RSL10 is a multi-protocol Bluetooth 5 certified radio System on Chip (SoC) which brings ultra-low-power wireless technology to IoT.

Offering the industry’s lowest power consumption, RSL10 helps provide devices like heart rate monitors with advanced wireless features while optimizing system size and battery life.

Unlike most other multi-protocol radio SoCs, RSL10 is specifically designed for applications using 1.2V and 1.5V batteries, and supports a voltage supply range between 1.1V and 3.3V without a required DC/DC converter. The highly-integrated radio SoC features a dual-core architecture and a 2.4 GHz transceiver, providing the flexibility to support Bluetooth low energy technology and 2.4GHz proprietary or custom protocols.

Features
