Bluetooth® Low Energy

With its inherent power efficiency and availability in smartphones, Bluetooth® low energy technology is the premiere short-range wireless protocol for IoT. It is ideally suited for applications requiring long or constant operation with only short bursts of wireless transmission.

  • Provides standardized protocols for simple, reliable interoperability across devices
  • High-speed wireless transmission: 1 or 2 Mbps with Bluetooth 5
  • Optimized power consumption to minimize impact on battery life
  • Easy to implement as Bluetooth low energy hosts already available in smart phones

RSL10

With Bluetooth 5 functionality and best-in-class power consumption, the RSL10 radio SoC brings the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth low energy technology to wireless applications.

Quick Facts About RSL10

  • Industry's lowest power consumption in Deep Sleep Mode (62.5 nW) and Rx in Receive Mode (7 mW)
  • Supports Bluetooth low energy technology and 2.4 GHz proprietary or custom protocols
