The first available product is the IEEE 802.11b compliant Talaria ONE, which equires only a fraction of the power typically required. More products will come out later this year, supporting multiple standards in a single device.
The benefits of this new approach include end product with a significantly extended battery life, single chip multi-radio support, and reduced PCB footprint
With their first product, the Talaria ONE ULP WiFi Radio, Innophase offers the industry’s lowest power 802.11 implementation based on their proprietary PolaRFusion Radio. The advanced WLAN 802.11b semiconductor radio processor features an on-chip RF front-end circuit, baseband, MAC, clock management, and power management. The ultra-low power level combined with the extensive feature set of the Talaria ONE makes it a perfect match for battery-powered remote nodes – especially in combination with the ultra-low-power MCUs from Ambiq Micro.
“By adding Innophase to our product portfolio, we now have the opportunity to offer not only BLE connectivity with our ClickBeetle platform, but we have a WiFi solution as well,” says Axel Tripkewitz, President & Managing Director of FEEU.
Various synergies arise between the Innophase offering and FEEU’s existing linecard portfolio: The software driving the Talaria ONE is tailored to the Apollo 2, which is also available from FEEU. Secondly, with WiFi being nearly ubiquitous, the power saving approach from Innophase is ideal to support the IoT development activities of FEEU. As a Value Added Distribution Partner, FEEU not only offers a wide range of products and services for these application types, but also employs experts helping customers identify the products that best fit their individual requirements.
