TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Toshiba (TOKYO:6502) has developed Bluetooth® low energy 1 System-on-Chip (SoC) compliance with version 4.2 that reduces current to 50% that of current products2 for IoT devices driven by a small-sized coin cell lithium battery. By adopting an architecture configuration and analog circuit design suited to low power operation, current consumption of 3.2mA for receive (RX) and 3.5mA for transmit (TX)3 are achieved, considerably lengthening battery life. The SoC also integrates RF (Radio Frequency)4 matching networks, reducing the number of external components and contributing to downsizing of IoT devices. This technology will be presented at the 2016 IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC) in Toyama, Japan, on November 8.
