Bluetooth 5 SoC accelerates data rates Andy Pratt February 24, 2017 Comms / Bluetooth / Wireless, ICs & Semiconductors Bluetooth 5 SoC accelerates data rates: Capable of supporting advanced wireless functionalities without compromising battery life or overall system size, the RSL10 is the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth low energy SoC for IoT and connected health and wellness, says ON Semiconductor. The multi-protocol Bluetooth 5-certified radio SoC can be used for wearables such as fitness trackers and smart watches, smart locks, and electronics like lighting or appliances. The RSL10 capitalises on the increased data rate throughput and can be used in applications using 1.2 and 1.5V batteries, and provides a voltage supply range between 1.1 and 3.6V without an external DC/DC converter. The integrated dual-core architecture is built around the user-programmable ARM Cortex-M3 processor, which provides clocking speeds up to 48MHz and can support 2.4GHz proprietary protocol stacks. There is also a low power 32bit dual-Harvard DSP system, which enables signal processing intensive applications such as wireless audio codecs. Hardware board, software tools, full documentation set and a range of Bluetooth protocols and firmware profile libraries are available. The RSL10 SoC is currently sampling in a miniature 5.5mm2 51pin WLCSP. Samples of the 6.0 x 6.0mm 48pin QFN are planned to be available at the end of April.
