Silicon Labs Launches New IoT Wi-Fi Device That Halves Power Consumption

Thursday,Mar 01,2018

 Silicon Labs (also known as "core technology", NASDAQ: SLAB) has introduced a new Wi-Fi? Portfolio to simplify the design of power-hungry battery-powered Wi-Fi products, including IP security cameras, Point-of-sale (PoS) terminals and consumer health care devices. The new WF200 transceivers and WFM200 modules support 2.4 GHz 802.11 b / g / n Wi-Fi optimized for energy efficiency while providing the high performance and reliability required for the growing number of connected devices in both home and business networks .

Daniel Cooley, senior vice president and general manager of IoT Products at Silicon Labs, said: "Our first low-power Wi-Fi portfolio is specifically designed for IoT and offers unprecedented breakthroughs in the design of secure, battery-operated interconnect devices There is no doubt that we have noticed strong customer demand for specific Wi-Fi technologies, including the limited power consumption and space budget to accommodate battery-operated devices and no need for end-users to connect to AC power. "
Christian Kim, senior analyst at global business information provider IHS Markit, said: "The estimated market for low-power IoT end-node applications will grow from 128 million in 2016 to 584 million in 2021. "
Developers can take advantage of the WFM200 to accelerate time-to-market and reduce battery-powered Wi-Fi products, the world's smallest pre-certified system-in-package (SiP) module with integrated antenna. Silicon Labs' WF200 transceivers provide a cost-effective option for high-volume applications and give developers the flexibility to meet unique system design requirements, such as the use of external antennas.
The energy-efficient WF200 transceiver and WFM200 module offer a host of benefits for IoT applications that support Wi-Fi:
Ultra-low transmit (TX: 138mA) and receive (RX: 48mA) power
· 200μA average Wi-Fi power consumption (DTIM = 3) contributes to ultralow system power consumption
· 115dBm excellent link budget for long-haul Wi-Fi transmission
Small footprint 4mm x 4mm QFN32 transceiver and 6.5mm x 6.5mm LGA52 SiP module ideal for space-constrained applications
Excellent antenna diversity and wireless coexistence in a crowded 2.4 GHz environment
Advanced Security Technology: Secure Boot and Host Interface, Hardware Encryption Accelerator with AES, PKE and TRNG
· Get ??FCC, CE, IC, Korea and Japan pre-certification, minimize development time, workload and reduce risk
Complete development tools and wireless starter kits, including embedded and Linux host drivers, allow developers to turn on design in minutes
