Combined Wi-Fi/Bluetooth radio chip offers very low power consumption

The AIROC CYW43012 SoC from Infineon is ideal for use in battery-powered products such as wireless IoT sensor nodes. The Murata Type 1LV module provides an easy way to implement the CYW43012 in end-product designs.

The AIROC™ CYW43012 from Infineon is an ultra-low power system-on-chip (SoC) which combines a dual-band 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Wi-Fi® 4 (802.11n) radio sub-system controlled by an Arm® Cortex®-M3 core, and a Bluetooth® 5.0 radio controlled by a Cortex-M4 core. 

The CYW43012 is ideal for battery-powered applications that require very low power consumption. This entails no compromise in performance: the CYW43012 supports 256‑QAM modulation for 20 MHz channels in the 5 GHz band, to enable data rates up to 78 Mbits/s in 802.11ac access points. The SoC includes an on-chip power amplifier and low-noise amplifiers for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

With the next-generation AIROC CYW43022 Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.4 SoC under development, OEMs can use the CYW43012 now and easily migrate to the CYW43022 when it becomes available. 

The easiest way to take advantage of the low power and high performance of the CYW43012 is by using the Murata Type 1LV, a fully integrated, off-the-shelf module for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networking applications. The Type 1LV module, which has the part number LBEE59B1LV, is housed in a small, shielded package that is easy to accommodate in size- and power-sensitive applications.
