In collaboration with Cypress Semiconductor, Murata has developed a small form factor Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module with a dramatically reduced power consumption.

The novel device Type 1LV (CYW43012) has a power consumption approximately 54% lower than its predecessor Type 1DX (CYW4343W) in DTIM 1 (delivery traffic indication message) , 60% in DTIM 3, up to 50% for 2.4 GHz RX, and 28% for 2.4 GHz TX.
Based on the Cypress CYW43012 combo chipset, the ultra-small dual-band Wi-Fi 11a/b/g/n/ (11ac Friendly) +Bluetooth 5.0 module provides data transfer rates up to 78Mbps on Wi-Fi and 3Mbps on Bluetooth. The Type 1LV supports a broad range of popular processors including PSoC6, i.MX RT, STM32, i.MX, and IP Camera platforms, as well as Linux and RTOS based applications.

The chip uses highly sophisticated and enhanced hardware mechanisms and algorithms to ensure that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth coexistence is optimised for maximum performance. An embedded Ipv6 network stack can be used to keep the host processor in sleep mode while maintaining network connections. The module also supports BLE 2Mbps, LE Secure Connections, LE Privacy 1.2, and LE Data Packet Length Extension. The device operates seamlessly in dual-band networks with increased energy efficiency and enhanced security providing optimal performance in Wi-Fi 5 networks. It will have a reference antennae design for FCC/IC certifications and CE conducted test to provide a lower development cost and faster time to market.

“Teaming up with Cypress allows us to leverage our combined expertise in delivering breakthrough solutions that are game changers for the market,” said Koichi Sorada, Product Manager, Connectivity Solutions for Murata Europe. “Using our proprietary packaging and miniaturization technologies, Murata leads in developing turnkey, transformational tools that ease integration and enable connectivity to help bring IoT to fruition. With this lowest Wi-Fi power module, we now enable a new class of products that were previously designated for Bluetooth.”
