Fabless semiconductor company Ubilite has announced the immediate availability of a Wi-Fi chip targeted specifically for ultra-low power wireless applications. Based on the UBI206 SoC, the UBI206 platform is offered as a highly integrated single device that enables a vast number of IoT products with a minimal number of external components.
It includes a switchless 802.11b/g/n radio, baseband processor, medium access controller (MAC), power management unit (PMU), memories, and a network application processor that runs the Wi-Fi link-layer protocols, TCP/IP stack, and IoT applications.
“UBI206 specifications are better by an order of magnitude than existing Wi-Fi solutions,” says Ismail Lakkis, CEO and founder of Ubilite. “The UBI206 was designed from the ground up at system level to optimize for lowest operating power and is the result of many years of development. Our solution offers a Wi-Fi experience with power consumption matching Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), thereby unleashing the full power of the IoT and enabling applications never before possible.”
The UBI206 is optimized for several ultra-low power IoT markets including wearables, trackers, beacons, healthcare, smart home, industrial systems monitoring and control, and audio. Key features include:
Data rate up to 72.2 Mbps
Rx Sensitivity -97 dBm
Tx Power +6dBm (P-1dB)
Rx Active Power consumption 17mW
Tx Active Power consumption 25mW
DTIM10 power consumption 85uA
5 x 5 QFN48 package
