When we introduced the SimpleLinkTM ultra-low power wireless MCU platform, TI set a new industry power consumption benchmark for Bluetooth® Smart, Sub-1 GHz, ZigBee®, 6LoWPAN and ZigBee RF4CETM wireless MCUs. The SimpleLink Wi-Fi® Internet-on-a-chipTM platform also delivers a low-power wireless MCU for battery-operated products and systems.

Additionally, TI offers SimpleLink wireless network processors and smart RF transceivers as well as combo connectivity solutions through the WiLinkTM platform, allowing customers to add low-power connectivity to wearables, portable electronics, home/building automation applications, industrial and embedded automotive designs.

The IoT is pushing the boundaries of power consumption requirements for product and system designs. Energy harvest- ing, always-on coin cell or AA battery-operated sensor products can now operate optimally for several years and offer efficient processing.

Overall power consumption and battery life are very important in many applications. TI wireless connectivity solutions are created and optimized with battery life in mind, making sure that solution performance can be achieved.

Average power consumption is key:

  • How quickly functions can execute so the system can go back to sleep – using more processing power can give a better system performance: TI has the lowest power wireless micro-controller with 61 μA/ MHz.
  • Low power in sleep and hibernate modes and low Tx and Rx power consumption.
  • Have system where sensor data can be detected in lowest power modes: TI has a unique sensor controller allowing the MCU to sleep while collecting sensor information while the main CPU can be continuously turned off.
  • Including built in DC–DC for system power efficiency.
  • Power efficiency of system – low-power modes and key use cases – See ULPBenchTM.

Our wireless connectivity portfolio is IoT-ready and enables easy-to-implement and robust wireless systems with unprecedented battery life through development of the lowest power wireless solutions in the industry.

Power Management Resources :

  • SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3100/CC3200 Internet-on-a-chip Sub-system Power Management
  • SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3100/CC3200 WLAN RF Transmit Power Peak and Average Measurements
  • Taking power to a new low with the SimpleLink ULP wireless MCU platform
