Low Power Connectivity solutions designed to provide a single source solution for low-power wireless standards such as low power Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and IEEE 802.15.4.

Specifically designed to meet the communications requirements for IoT (Internet of Things), M2M (Machine-To-Machine) and wearable devices, Ensigma low power connectivity solutions implement all of the connectivity standards needed for embedding low-power connectivity inside SoCs and are optimised to provide the smallest possible area, with the minimum external components.


Ensigma Whisper RPU


Wi-Fi speeds at Bluetooth power

Ensigma Low Power connectivity solutions implement a patented PowerGearing low power consumption technique that includes advanced design techniques and process technology features, enabling the lowest active and idle power, extending the overall system battery life whilst maintaining consistent connectivity and providing a rich set of features. Solutions are available in a wide range of performance capabilities, from single-standard to multi-standard implementations. All solutions include an integrated MIPS processor that can be scaled as required to enable support for an integrated host stack, removing the need for a separate host processor and thereby reducing both solution size and cost.
