Atmosic and Globalscale Technologies Announce Availability of Industry’s Lowest Power Bluetooth Low Energy Module
Small form factor RistrettoBin module designed for extremely low power applications where battery life is critical
CAMPBELL, Calif. and ANAHEIM, Calif. – June 30, 2021 –Atmosic™ Technologies, an innovator of ultra-low-power wireless platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT), and Globalscale Technologies, a leading IoT solutions provider, today announced the immediate availability of the lowest power Bluetooth Low Energy module available in the market. With a transmit power of only 2.4mA at 0dBm and receiver power under 1mA, the Atmosic Bluetooth LE 5.0 radio consumes 3X to 5X less power than competitors’ low power Bluetooth LE products for battery-based product designs.
Globalscale is using the Atmosic M2 Series ATM2202 chip as a low-power wireless processor for the new RistrettoBin module. Measuring only 14mm by 8mm, the tiny module is perfect for energy-critical consumer, industrial, medical and commercial applications. The on-chip Arm Cortex-M0 processor and a wide range of I/O interfaces make the ATM2202-based module a perfect choice for running energy-critical, edge-of-network applications.
“This new module will help unleash the full potential of the IoT, providing ultra-low power wireless connectivity to the growing range of energy-critical applications,” said Srinivas Pattamatta, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Atmosic Technologies. “With Atmosic’s unmatched power efficiency, the RistrettoBin module will significantly extend the battery life of IoT devices, reducing maintenance costs and time.”
In addition to the low power Bluetooth LE radio, the chip contains a specially designed, ultra-low power (150nA) wake-up receiver that can operate even when the remainder of the chip is in low-power hibernate mode. Unlike a typical Bluetooth LE radio that continuously uses energy transmitting beacons, the ATM2202 can remain in low-power hibernate mode until it receives a chip-specific coded message from another Bluetooth radio.
“The RistrettoBin module represents an exciting milestone for the IoT industry, offering ultra-low power consumption in an super compact design,” said Bryan Cheng, VP of Sales & Marketing at GlobalScale Technologies. “Furthermore, the module’s wide range of I/O interfaces and tools – including an AT command software package and SDK – gives manufacturers more design flexibility to customize the module for different types of applications and use cases.”
The module comes with an easy-to-use AT command software package, plus a comprehensive SDK for wireless application development. A library of software reference designs from Atmosic is available for many battery-based IoT applications, including contact tracing, wireless keyboards, cold chain tracking and electronic shelf labels.
