IEEE 802.11n SDIO module in ‘M.2 1216/LGA’ form factor
The Realtek RTL8723CS is an SDIO 2.0 solution comprising WLAN, BT, and FM Receiver. Its small module size, low power consumption, and intelligent coexistence mechanism make it ideal for multiple applications such as tablets equipped with the latest Intel Cherry Trail platform, smart phones, 2-in-1 detachable/convertible notebooks, and HDMI dongles (TV stick). The RTL8723CS is also a perfect solution in smart home or IOT gateway applications.
IoT is an emerging market integrating network communications into consumer and security electronics, automobile electronics, and industrial control electronics. Realtek provides a total IoT solution, Ameba (RTL8711AF, RTL8711AM, and RTL8195AM). The miniature module reference design ensures that the Realtek solution is compatible with market requirements for compact IoT products, e.g. smart plugs, smart home appliances, home security systems, and smart sensor/lighting devices. In addition, the low power design is perfect for battery-powered appliances.
Ameba consists of a high-performance CPU (ARM Cortex-M3) and memory. Ameba provides complete networking and Wi-Fi protocols, including hardware SSL engine, multiple serial ports, e.g. UART, I2C, SPI, and PWM, and high-speed SDIO. The RTL8195AM integrates with ADC and DAC to directly control analog type sensors or devices. With these features, customers can use the minimum of external components to realize their IoT product functions.
At Internet of Things World 2015, Realtek will showcase multiple Wi-Fi modules and the Ameba platform development kit for all types of customer applications requiring WLAN features; those related to IoT in particular.
“Realtek’s expertise in wireless technologies, SoC (System on Chip), and dedicated technical support allows us to provide ultra-low-power, highly-integrated, and high-performance products that give our customers access to the full potential of their products”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang.
The Internet of Things World 2015 will take place at the Moscone West Convention Center, San Francisco on May 12~13. Realtek will be exhibiting the above solutions at booth number 354.
