Bluetooth 5 SoC maximizes battery life

-March 04, 2017

This product is featured in EDN's Hot 100 products of 2017. See all 100 here.
A multiprotocol, Bluetooth 5-certified radio system-on-chip, ON Semiconductor’s RSL10 requires just 62.5 nW in deep sleep mode and 7 mW in receive mode, optimizing battery life in fitness trackers, smart watches, and other  IoT and connected health and wellness applications. With its ARM Cortex M3 processor and LPDSP32 DSP core, the highly integrated RSL10 supports Bluetooth low-energy technology and 2.4-GHz proprietary protocol stacks without sacrificing power consumption.
The radio system-on-chip is intended for designs using 1.2-V and 1.5-V batteries and accommodates a voltage supply range of 1.1 V to 3.6 V without requiring a DC/DC converter. Key features include a receive sensitivity of -94 dBm, transmit power of -17 dBm to +6 dBm, and a data rate of 62.5 kbps to 2000 kbps. The RSL10 also includes 384 kbytes of flash memory and allows firmware over-the-air updates.

Currently sampling in a tiny 5.50-mm2, 51-pin WLCSP, the RSL10 is also expected to be available in a 6×6-mm, 48-pin QFN package by the end of April.
