Broadcom Introduces Most Advanced WICED IoT Family

by December 10, 2015 0 comments

Broadcom Corporation introduced a new family of enhanced low-power (ELP) multi-protocol Bluetooth/802.15.4 combo systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) into its Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) portfolio. Broadcom’s WICED CORE ELP devices provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with the ideal platform for low-power Internet of Things (IoT) products and applications.

The WICED CORE ELP Bluetooth family delivers advanced technology for a wide range of IoT applications, including simultaneous multi-protocol support, the industry’s first 40nm flash memory in a communications SoC, low-power consumption and a common development platform. By integrating a host of features including increased processor speed, FPU and DSP libraries, more applications RAM and significant flash memory on a chip the size of a fingernail, Broadcom enables OEMs to create more complex applications and employ a wireless MCU that scales across a much wider product set than solutions available today.

Broadcom’s WICED CORE ELP includes:

  • BCM20719 which supports both Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart protocols
  • BCM20729 which supports Zigbee and 6LoWPAN protocols
  • BCM20739 which supports Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart and IEEE 802.15.4 protocols

Key Features of the WICED CORE ELP Family:

  • ARM Cortex CM4 MCU with FPU and DSP extensions and a clock speed up to 100Mz
  • Common platform for simplified application development and seamless connection to mobile devices and mesh networks
  • 512 KB RAM for complex applications
  • 1MB flash memory for program and data storage including support for over-the-air updates
  • Integrated Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart and Zigbee 3.0 software stacks
  • Advanced sleep and latency management circuitry
  • High performance radio frequency (RF)
  • Compliant with Bluetooth 4.2 specification
  • Expansive set of IO including precision A/D convertors

o    Support for UART, SPI, Quad-SPI and Serial Control interfaces for interfacing to external nonvolatile memories, peripheral ICs, and sensors

  • On-chip, multi-channel ADC for measuring sensor inputs, battery level, and more
  • On-chip AES 256 encryption engines with support for RSA, MD5, ECC and secure element
  • Native wireless charging support for A4WP and Airfuel

Availability

Broadcom’s WICED CORE ELP family is now sampling.
