Ensigma™ Connectivity is a family of high-performance and low power IP solutions for wireless standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and IEEE 802.15.4 based solutions such as Zigbee and Thread. The IP is specifically designed to meet the communications requirements for the low-power consumption markets such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables. Ensigma Connectivity solutions implement all of the communication requirements for complex low-power System on Chips (SoCs).

Ensigma CRF5500 Wi-Fi RFIC IP is a low power, high-performance, highly flexible, dual-band IEEE 802.11ac and Bluetooth Radio which provides an optimum RF Transmitter / Receiver for the Ensigma Radio Processing Unit (RPU).

It provides a compact ultra-small form factor solution with minimal external components to drive the costs for mass volumes and allows for flexibility in size, form, and function. Utilising advanced design techniques and process technology to deliver the lowest active and idle power, the Ensigma CRF5500 IP Technology extends the system battery life while maintaining consistent connectivity and still provides a rich set of features.

The optimum solution consists of the IP pair of the Wi-Fi RF IP and the Direct-Connect-To-Battery Power Management IP. The two macros can be delivered as separate IPs and are mutually independent.
