Whatever the application, many IoT devices need to be battery operated, so power efficiency is paramount. IMG iEW400, our latest IP for low-power connectivity, is based on the new IEEE 802.11ax standard, now widely referred to as Wi-Fi 6, making it the ultimate solution for low-power IoT.
A picture paints a thousand words and for ambitious companies with microcontroller unit (MCU) technology, the picture below is very clear – market growth in IoT-oriented connected devices offers great opportunities. In a slow-growing market, each new design win requires the removal of an incumbent. However, the rapidly growing connected IoT market offers ideal conditions for dynamic companies to gain market share quickly. Unfortunately, MCU companies without connectivity cannot play in this rapidly growing sector.
One of the key reasons for Wi-Fi’s ubiquity in devices is down to the Wi-Fi Alliance, which on 4 June 2019 is celebrating 20 years of existence. But what exactly is the Wi-Fi Alliance?
As is well known, one of the pillars on which the success of the IoT rests is its requirement for a multitude of devices to
The other day one of my colleagues at Imagination pulled from her pocket an old, battered, but clearly much cherished, music player. I couldn’t help
There is an ever-increasing demand for more functionality and complexity to be added to wireless access points. To address these requirements, systems designers must rely
Policy frameworks usually can vary broadly from one system vendor to the next, from a no-rules approach to performing deep packet inspection-based classification. However, all
The data bandwidth requirements of Wi-Fi devices have been increasing tenfold every five years while the number of Wi-Fi devices inside the home is doubling
Whenever I talk about Imagination Technologies, my colleagues in the industry almost always identify us with PowerVR and MIPS – two of the biggest brands
Since their release, the Ensigma Series4 family of Radio Processing Units (RPUs) has been the powerhouse for high-performance connectivity standards such as 802.11ac 2×2 and
