Rockchip Debuts SoC Processor Technology for Low Power Wi Fi Connected IoT Smart Devices
Monday, June 08, 2015
Rockchip a Chinese based fabless semiconductor company and mobile SoC solution provider, has launched the RKi6000 offering a new ultra-low power Wi-Fi and memory technology designed to reduce the power consumption of IoT (Internet of Things) smart devices.
The RKi6000’s on-chip processor and memory technology resolves the power issue related to many Wi-Fi devices. The processor technology offers power consumption equal to that of Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), with receiving power consumption around 20mAh during use.
Rockchip’s technology allows IoT devices to use a coin battery. In addition, AAA batteries can be used for up to 35 years. The RKi6000 allows Wi-Fi based smart product design in a variety of markets, including wearable, consumer electronics, mainstream home appliances, home safety, automation systems, automobiles and medical equipment
Highlights of the new technology include:
- Improvements in wireless communication and radio-frequency architecture: Rockchip’s patented technology reduces an IoT smart device’s power consumption by receiving and transmitting data continuously, enabling devices to achieve ultra-low power consumption while in standby and in use.
- Adaptive Dynamic Power Control Technology: Improves power efficiency in different working modes, reducing all-over power consumption in different application scenarios and adjusting the chip’s power configuration according to data transmission requirements and actual transmission quality, achieving the best energy efficiency ratio.
- Technological innovation connects to Wi-Fi without waking up the main-control processor: For IoT applications requiring long standby times while remaining online, the Rockchip RKi6000 maintains its Wi-FI connection without waking up the main-control processor, simplifying the power consumption system’s design and extending battery life.
The Rockchip RKi6000 will be available starting Q3 2015.
