Bluetooth Low Energy v5.1 and IEEE 802.15.4 IP in GF22 FDX
Energy efficient, robust wireless links are an important part of an IoT system. Beacons, wearables, activity trackers, indoor positioning, industrial and automotive applications have all benefited from technological advancements facilitated by low-power short-range wireless communications.
IMG iEB120 supports Bluetooth Low Energy v5.1 and IEEE 802.15.4 standards, with market leading radio performance and low power consumption. iEB120 is an ideal choice for integration into a low-power communication SoC.
Multi-protocol connectivity solution
iEB120 supports IEE 802.15.4 networking and communication protocols such as Zigbee and Thread. This enables maximum flexibility for multi-standard IoT deployments in industrial or home automation applications.
Minimise your integration time with silicon-proven IP
iEB120 is a silicon-proven design, reducing risk and minimising time to market. The solution is backed with a comprehensive evaluation platform enabling full verification of the outstanding RF performance offered by the iEB120.
We have a range of real-world end-to-end demo platforms from Bluetooth Mesh to a Bluetooth enabled Lego car, demonstrating the IP in action.

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.
Earlier this week, we announced our new iEB110 IP, a complete Bluetooth Low Energy IP solution based on the recently announced Bluetooth SIG version 5.2 specification. We’re particularly excited about this IP as the BLE 5.2 specification introduces LE audio, which is a significant step forward for Bluetooth audio, both in terms of sounds quality and functionality.
