Low-power modules support IoT applications
A family of modules that provide reliable multi-protocol wireless connectivity for a broad range of low-power applications, including security cameras, industrial sensors, fitness bands, and smart locks, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices is available at Mouser Electronics.
The Redpine RS9116 modules support multi-protocol wireless connectivity with Bluetooth 5, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11abgn Wi-Fi, and 802.15.4 capable of running Thread or Zigbee, and feature an integrated baseband processor with RF transceiver, calibration memory, high-power amplifier, and flash memory.
The modules’ architecture enables optimised transitions between high-performance and low-power operating modes, allowing the devices to support a Wi-Fi standby associated power of less than 90µA. Additionally, the devices include an ultra-low-power wake-up receiver with secure wake-up pattern to prevent battery drain attack.
They are available in either embedded (WiSeConnect) or hosted (n-Link) configurations for easy integration with different processor families and operating systems.
Mouser is also stocking the RS9116 development tools.
Available in single-band (2.4GHz) and dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) versions, the RS9116 Evaluation Kits provide a single platform that enables evaluation of both n-Link and WiSeConnect RS9116 modules.
Each kit includes an RS9116 baseboard, wireless daughter card, and necessary cables, plus a sample driver and applications to test wireless functionality, security modes, and more.
