Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth combo extends battery life for IoT applications

15-03-2023 | Infineon | Power

Infineon Technologies AG has launched the new AIROC CYW43022 ultra-low power, dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth combo, growing its wide portfolio of existing AIROC Wi-Fi and Bluetooth products. The device's ultra-low power architecture provides industry-leading performance, with up to a 65% reduction in power usage during 'deep sleep', greatly extending battery life for applications, including IP cameras, smart locks, smart wearables, and thermostats.

"As a leader in Wi-Fi and IoT technologies, Infineon has developed an innovative approach to maximising battery life in some of the most power-sensitive consumer devices," said Sivaram Trikutam, vice president of Wi-Fi Product Line, Infineon. "By optimising the sleep power for battery-operated IoT devices, consumers can now enjoy longer battery life compared to competing solutions. With the industry's lowest power consumption for a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combination, this new solution enables more devices to be smarter, connected, and more versatile in a wide range of environments."

The combo comprises Wi-Fi network offloads and an embedded Bluetooth stack lowering power demands on host processors. The combo incorporates a Class 1 Bluetooth PA with +18dBm transmit power to support smaller antennas or designs requiring longer reach. Secure boot with firmware image authentication needing signed Infineon firmware protects against hacker attacks.

The AIROC wireless products, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combos, have shipped over a billion devices and are the go-to for IoT solutions. The wide portfolio incorporates high-performing, reliable, ultra-low-power products that deliver robust industry-leading performance.

AIROC products leverage a common software framework across Android, Linux, RTOS platforms and are pre-integrated with the company's ModusToolbox software and tools, allowing developers to deliver high-quality, differentiated products to market on time and on budget. Direct access to online applications support engineers is available with its Developer Community.
