Redpine Introduces Dual-Mode Bluetooth 5 Secure MCU Solution

August 30, 2018 Laura Dolan

Redpine Signals, Inc. launched its industry-leading dual-mode Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 Wireless Secure MCU (WiSeMCU) solution – RS13100, with an integrated 180MHz ARM Cortex-M4F MCU for customer applications. 

It combines dual-mode Bluetooth 5 with high-performance processing, advanced security, and low-power for advanced IoT applications, delivers two to three times higher processor performance and three to four times more battery life and provides the industry’s highest-output power of 20dBm and lowest-power Bluetooth music streaming.

Bluetooth Low Energy 5 and 802.15.4 integrated in the RS13100 have the capability to provide up to 20dBm output power and -104dBm receiver sensitivity with an internal power amplifier, making it the highest-output power solution in the industry. Moreover, designers can provide simultaneous audio and high data throughput capabilities along with connectivity to multiple BLE and 802.15.4 devices with dual-mode Bluetooth 5 capability.

 “Dual-mode Bluetooth 5 is the technology of choice for a growing number of advanced IoT applications that require music streaming, voice recognition, and connection to smartphones and other IoT devices,” said Tim Vehling, president of Redpine Signals. “Existing solutions in the market are either under-powered or lack support for critical Bluetooth functions, forcing designers to compromise on their designs.  The RS13100 not only features long-range dual-mode Bluetooth 5 and BLE mesh support, but also includes a high-performance processor, class-leading security, low-power operation, and advanced peripherals that meet the requirements of advanced IoT applications.”
