The Atmosic team, having pioneered CMOS RF design over the past decades, has unique perspective and expertise in low-power wireless design. We approached the challenge of radically reducing battery dependence for IoT as “wireless agnostics,” in search of the most power-efficient way to solve the challenges associated with installing and maintaining billions of IoT devices such as beacons, controllers, and asset and fitness trackers, just to name a few.
Many IoT applications require long range but need very little bandwidth capacity, transmitting data only intermittently. We believe the advances of Bluetooth® technology with its latest iteration known as Bluetooth 5, offers the ideal wireless platform upon which we’ve built our inaugural solutions. The new Bluetooth 5 offers performance increases over legacy Bluetooth by 4x the range, 2x the speed and 8x the bandwidth. Enhancing this standards-based platform with our Lowest Power Radio outlined here, we’ve achieved 10 times lower power in our Bluetooth 5-based products. Combined with our On-demand Wakeup discussed here, our solutions are capable of 100 times lower power. With Controlled Energy Harvesting discussed here, we can make the batteries in your devices last forever or be battery free.
These order of magnitude decreases in power consumption, coupled with energy harvesting, will radically and positively change battery power dynamics for wireless IoT forever. With these advances, Atmosic is enabling our vision of Forever Connectivity, Anywhere.
Atmosic Solution Families
