IoT devices will operate while consuming dramaticly lower power than competitors’ solutions with Atmosic Battery-Free Bluetooth 5 SoC. The M3 is so low energy that it gives battery life to devices for good and also removes the need for battery power.
Battery-Free Bluetooth Features
The M3 incorporates Lowest Power Radio, On-Demand Wake-Up, and Controlled Energy Harvesting technologies from Atmosic to offer what the company claims is 10 to 100 times less power than other SoCs, while still meeting Bluetooth requirements. The M3’s radio uses two “ears” to detect incoming commands – one for listening in a low-power environment, and one that only wakes when alerted. The SoC uses technologies for energy harvesting to collect power from radio frequency, photovoltaic, thermal, and motion.
Battery-Free Bluetooth Applications
5G will enable Bluetooth devices to expand even further, including beacons, asset tracking, sensing, tags and positioning. A lot has been said about 5G, but not so much has been discussed about the effect of 5G on the demand for Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth and 5G play key roles in linking devices at different points of a network for massive IoT deployments.
Ever on, edge processing devices are often connected and need low power sustained battery life. The trend towards true wireless continues with the rise in the number of IoT apps. Connected apps can be used for more streamlined user interface to process information quicker. Connected devices, such as sounds, motion or any other form of sensing, monitoring, remote access, wearables and mobile accessories such as audio headsets are particularly able to handle edges.
The growth in 5 G and edge computing systems would greatly improve battery life and energy harvesting. Atmosic M3 SoC solution provides the possibility of energy harvesting technologies which pull electricity from photovoltaic setting, radio frequency.
