Housed in a small 8.8 x 8 mm BGA package, the RS9116N-DBT is powered by an ARM Cortex M4 MCU, and boasts advanced hardware security, and multiple wireless protocols at very low power consumption. It has protocol stacks for Wi-Fi, BT, BLE, ZigBee and Thread, and includes automated mesh formation and reconfiguration. The wireless wake-up receiver remains on at a few microamps of current and wakes up the rest of the device when required.
The RS9116N-DBT consumes less than 113 uA for maintaining cloud connection over Wi-Fi. The SoC provides simultaneous operation of multiple wireless protocols – enabling router functionality in addition to that of an end node. In addition, the device has the ability to stream data at up to 100 Mbps and is compatible with all generations of Wi-Fi – up to Wi-Fi 6. The RS9116N-DBT is also able to provide a number of power-efficient and hardware-assisted machine learning functions.
