Imagination Announces New iEB110 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) v5.2 IP

iEB110, a complete BLE v5.2 solution will supercharge the development of the next generation of audio applications.

Imagination Technologies announces its latest Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) IP, supporting the latest Bluetooth SIG version 5.2 specification. iEB110 is a complete BLE solution, including RF, controller software, and Bluetooth Low Energy host stack. By providing a complete solution using the open-source Zephyr and Cordio host stacks together with a set of profiles, companies wanting to integrate BLE IP into their solution can take advantage of reduced integration and development costs.

Designed for integration into complex communication systems-on-chips (SoCs), the iEB110 provides a featured, ultra-low-power BLE v5.2 solution. It offers RF with optimum silicon area and external bill of materials (BOM). The iEB110 architecture allows integration with Imagination’s Wi-Fi IPs to create cost-effective multi-standard, wireless communication SoCs.

iEB110 takes advantage of the new Low Complexity Communication Codec (LC3) and software algorithm to deliver clear audio at a low power, enabling manufacturers to create small form factor audio devices such as earbuds and hearing aids.

iEB110 supports Bluetooth 5.2 features such as Angle of Arrival/Angle of Departure (AoA / AoD) allowing sub 1m location and tracking accuracy, LE long-range operation for extended indoor and outdoor coverage, and LE-2M PHY for higher throughput.

iEB110 is supplied as a complete IP solution comprising RF, controller, and host stack for Zephyr and Cordio complete with Bluetooth SIG certification and FCC and CE RF compliance.

Imagination will be demonstrating iEB110 at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, 25th – 27th February 2020, Hall 3, stand 211.
