    Broadcom’s WICED™ CORE Enhanced Low Power Devices: Four Times the Battery Life for IoT Sensors...

    mifo

      One of the biggest gripes about early generations of sensor-driven Internet of Things devices (think: beacons, wearables and such) is that they’re power-hungry.

       

      To collect and analyze the most accurate data, whether it’s to look at consumer shopping habits or to meet a fitness goal, these devices need to be active 24/7.

       

      Yet beacons, medical monitoring devices, wearables and other small gadgets pose a unique problem in their design: there’s an inherent tradeoff between processing power, industrial design and the size of the battery.

       

      The Broadcom IoT WICED CORE ELP lineup includes:

      • BCM20719, which supports both Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart protocols
      • BCM20729, which supports Zigbee and 6LoWPAN protocols
      • BCM20739, which supports Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart and IEEE 802.15.4 protocols
