Atmosic and Globalscale Technologies Announce New Bluetooth Low Energy Module
July 15, 2021
The Small form factor RistrettoBin module is designed for low power applications where battery life is a critical need.
Bluetooth technology has been around since the ‘90s and has evolved into a necessity for many companies running on the edge. One advancement that has been on the fore front of edge computing is Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
While standard Bluetooth peak current consumption is <30mA, the BLE’s peak current consumption is <15mA, making it the prominent Bluetooth technology in IoT.
The BLE uses less power consumption than a typical as it rests in a power hibernate mode until it receives a message from another radio. They work only when they need to work.
With a transmit power of only 2.4mA at 0dBm and receiver power under 1mA, Globalscale is using the Atmosic M2 Series ATM2202 chip as a -power processor for the new RistrettoBin module.
“This new module will help unleash the full potential of the IoT, providing ultra- power connectivity to the growing range of -critical applications,” said Srinivas Pattamatta, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Atmosic Technologies.
Along with the power LE radio, the chip contains an ultra- power (150nA) wake-up receiver that functions even when the remainder of the chip is in -power hibernate mode.
