RSL10 is a Bluetooth 5, multi-protocol radio System on Chip (SoC) bringing ultra-low-power Bluetooth Low Energy to wireless applications.

Offering the industry’s lowest power consumption, RSL10 enables advanced wireless features while optimizing system size and battery life. The highly-integrated radio SoC features a dual-core architecture and a 2.4 GHz transceiver, providing the flexibility to support Bluetooth Low Energy and 2.4 GHz custom protocols. Bluetooth Low Energy mesh is supported with the RSL10 Mesh Platform.

The RSL10 Software Development Kit (SDK) enables rapid development of ultra-low power Bluetooth Low Energy applications by leveraging convenient abstraction, drivers and sample applications from Blinky to complete BLE peripherals, and everything in between.


SDK key features:
  • Free Eclipse®-based ON Semiconductor IDE plus support for Keil μVision® and IAR Embedded Work Bench®
  • Complete Bluetooth Low Energy protocol stack
  • FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) with Android™ and iOS apps
  • FreeRTOS™

Features
 
  • Ultra-Low-Power:
    - Industry's lowest power consumption in Deep Sleep Mode (62.5 nW) and Rx in Receive Mode (7 mW)
    - Industry's best EEMBC® ULPMark™ scores (1090 ULPMark CP @ 3 V; 1260 @ 2.1 V)
  • Advanced Multi-Protocol Wireless Functionality:
    - Rx Sensitivity: - 94 dBM
    - Transmitting Power: -17 to +6 dBm
    - Supports Bluetooth Low Energy and 2.4 GHz proprietary/custom protocols
    - Supports Firmware Over The Air (FOTA)
  • Flexible Voltage Supply Range (1.1 and 3.3 V):
    Supports devices using 1.2 and 1.5 V batteries without a required external DC/DC converter
  • Ultra-Miniature:
    RSL10 is offered in a 5.50 mm2 WLCSP and a 6 x 6 mm QFN. For added miniaturization, the radio SoC is also available in a complete System-in-Package (SiP) solution.
  • Sophisticated Dual-Core Architecture:
    Features a programmable Arm Cortex-M3 processor for clocking speeds up to 48 MHz and the flexibility to support 2.4 GHz proprietary and custom protocol stacks. An embedded Digital Signal Processor (DSP) enables signal processing intensive applications, such as wireless audio codecs.
  • On-Chip and Software Wireless Support:
    Features a 2.4 GHz Radio Frequency Front-End (RFFE) and a Bluetooth 5 certified baseband controller which supports 2 Mbps data rates. A wide range of supported Bluetooth low energy protocols are provided in the RSL10 development tools kit.
  • Highly-Integrated System-on-Chip (SoC):
    The powerful dual-core architecture is complemented by high-efficiency power management units, oscillators, flash, and RAM memories, a DMA controller, and peripherals and interfaces.
  • Other Key Technical Features:
    - 384 kB of flash memory
    - IP protection feature to secure flash contents
    - Configurable analog and digital sensor interfaces (GPIOs, LSADs, I2C, SPI, PCM)
