Ultra-low-power BLE module for IoT aims for 'forever battery life'
Ultra-low-power wireless semiconductor company Atmosic Technologies (Campbell, CA) and audio-visual products maker and IoT solutions provider Tonly Electronics Holdings (Hong Kong, China) have announced a partnership to develop a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module designed to enable significantly longer battery life for IoT applications.

The TBMO2 module will integrate Atmosic’s M2 system-on-chip (SoC), which is built with the company's Lowest Power Radio and On-Demand Wake Up technologies suiting it for applications such as wearables, personal and asset trackers, beacons, remotes, locationing devices, keyboards and mice. The module, says the company, will help companies accelerate the development of innovative wireless devices with extended battery life, helping to reduce the costs of IoT deployment and maintenance.

“We built our M2 solutions from the ground up to revolutionize the IoT market with 'forever battery life,' says Atmosic CEO David Su. "We are excited to enable device makers to more quickly and easily develop smart devices from smart home products to wearables to consumer electronics with our cutting-edge low power and wake up technologies. Our collaboration with Tonly for the TBMO2 module is another step forward to dramatically reducing IoT devices' dependence on batteries."

The company's Lowest Power Radio technology is claimed to enable devices to achieve "incredible" power efficiency improvements, without compromising a device’s overall performance. Meanwhile, the On-demand Wake-Up technology is designed for always on, always connected devices, enabling applications to perceive incoming transmissions using as little power as possible. Together, says the company, these technologies in the TBMO2 will help alleviate the impact of battery waste on the environment and eliminate the need for constant battery replacement, ushering in new possibilities for IoT deployments.

Tonly’s SVP, David Huang adds, "The TBMO2 module is a true game changer for the IoT market, providing a compact, highly integrated module for the development of next generation IoT devices with extended battery life. This new solution continues our commitment to providing companies with total wireless solutions to bring consumers the latest features like voice computing and AI."

The compact, highly integrated and easy-to-use module is offered as being ideal for wearables, smart home products (including lighting, plugs and switches), consumer electronics, smartphones and tablets, medical devices, logistics and tracking
