Bluetooth has always been a popular communication protocol for short-range applications, but now anticipating BT5 it’s really moving into the big leagues as a significant option for IoT applications. The new standard combines ultra-low power with significantly higher range and higher performance. Ultra-low power is always important for IoT, higher range makes use of BT5 practical to support ranges required for smart-home applications for example and higher performance can allow for more data communication long with improved Run Fast then Stop power reduction.
Naturally you’ll get maximum value out of BT5 if you can integrate with the rest of your SoC functionality. Join CEVA and CSEM to get designer views on where BT5 fits in the IoT landscape and how you can design and integrate a low-power radio front-end for your design with a minimum of fuss.
According to ABI Research, the number of connected devices will reach 48 billion by 2021, a third of which will be Bluetooth wireless technology enabled. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has recently released the highly-anticipated Bluetooth 5, which extends the performance and the scope of Bluetooth low energy. New features include a doubling of speed (from 1Mbps to 2Mbps), as well as a 4X range increase, thus enabling smart home applications. What does it take to design BLE products that are low power and low cost, but also reliable?
This webinar presents how to easily and quickly design a low power Bluetooth 5 SoC for IoT, wearable or smart home applications, thanks to the CEVA RivieraWaves Bluetooth low energy system IP combined with the CSEM RF solution.
Join CEVA and CSEM experts to learn about:
• Overview and market trends in connectivity for IoT, wearable and smart home.
• How does Bluetooth low energy fit into the landscape, and what will Bluetooth 5 bring.
• Bluetooth 5: typical system architecture and key components.
• The low cost and power optimized CEVA Bluetooth IPs.
• Designing a low power radio front-end using the CSEM IcyTRX RF IP.
