iEB100 Series

Ensigma Bluetooth Connectivity Family

Low power, small form factor Bluetooth and 15.4 combo

The iEB100 series consist of Bluetooth Low Energy v5.1 and a  Bluetooth Low Energy v5.1 plus IEEE 802.15.4 combination IP. They enable compact ultra-small form factor solutions with minimal external components to reduce the costs for large-scale production. Utilizing advanced design techniques and process technology, we are capable of delivering the lowest active and idle power. The iEB100 series extends the system battery life while maintaining consistent connectivity and provides a rich set of features.
