Dialog Semiconductor Extends IoT Connectivity Portfolio

May 11, 2020 Perry Cohen

Dialog Semiconductor announced the release of the DA16200, the company’s newest IoT connectivity offering. The Wi-Fi networking SoC hosts two modules that take advantage of Dialog’s VirtualZero technology. The DA16200 puts a focus on battery on battery life in battery powered IoT devices.

According to the company, it runs the entire Wi-Fi system, security and networking protocol stack, eliminating the need for an external network processor, CPU, or microcontroller. It features an 802.11b/g/n radio (PHY) baseband processor, MAC, on-chip memory, encryption engine, and an ARM® Cortex®-M4F host networking applications processor.

A power amplifier (PA) and low-noise amplifier (LNA) are also included for extended range without dwindling battery life.

In addition to the SoC, the company released two DA16200-based modules for flexibility and design options. The modules feature 4MB flash memory and required RF components which include a crystal oscillator, RF-lumped filter, and either a chip antenna or a u.FL connector.

Per a company press release, the modules are fully certified for worldwide operation, including certifications for FCC, IC, CE, Telec, Korea, and SRRC. Additionally, both the SoC and modules are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED® for interoperability.
