Silicon Labs: Designing sensors into battery-powered IoT nodes

June 30, 2016 // By Silicon Labs
This white paper looks at always-on, battery-operated, wireless sensors and discusses Silicon Labs' Gecko Low Energy Sensor Interface, known as LESENSE. Wireless sensors usually comprise a wireless transceiver and MCU and at least one sensor. LESENSE enables Silicon Labs' Gecko MCU and Wireless MCUs to monitor resistive, capacitive, inductive, and IR sensors while keeping the power-hungry core and most of the MCU in deep sleep mode.
