Newracom Announces Availability of Ultra-Low Power ARM Core Based Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n MAC/PHY/Subsystem and RFIC IP for Internet of Things Applications


Author by Newracom


IRVINE, Calif. - ()Newracom, Inc., a leading developer and licensor in wireless intellectual property of cutting-edge Wi-Fi technology, today announced the availability of NRC6181, a proven ultra-low power ARM Core based IEEE 802.11b/g/n MAC/PHY/full Wi-Fi subsystem and RFIC IP especially designed for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. NRC6181 has been designed for easiest integration into customers’ SoCs and consists of extremely small number of gates counts for low cost, while also achieving ultra-low power consumption as required for many IoT applications.

NRC6181 is fully available today and supports all the mandatory IEEE 802.11 b/g/n features. It has been designed on TSMC’s proven 40nm LP process to achieve significantly low power.

“We are pleased to announce NRC6181, our latest ultra-low power Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n MAC/PHY/full subsystem/RFIC IP especially designed for the IoT market. Instead of using external Wi-Fi chipsets and modules, our low power ARM-based IP will enable IoT processor SoC customers to easily integrate 802.11 b/g/n functionality into their chipset for lowering overall cost, size and power consumptions. We have seen tremendous interest on NRC6181 from several customers, and looking forward in enabling low-power Wi-Fi as a core technology to be used for IoT applications in the near future”, said Michael Lee, Vice President of Marketing and Sales.

 NRC6181 has also been integrated onto ARM’s mBed platform and will be demonstrated live at the ARM TechCon held  in the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA USA from October 25-27, 2016.
