At this year’s Embedded World in Nuremberg, ON Semiconductor will be exhibiting its integrated semiconductor-based systems solutions for the industrial, automotive and consumer sectors. Particular focus will be given to the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industry 4.0, plus image sensing and power management for automotive.
With wireless connectivity continuing to enable the IIoT, ON Semiconductor is introducing a family of ARM cortex powered ultra-low power RF SoCs with different memory and speed options. According to the company, the family leads its class in terms of integration, bringing together a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ core and subsystem with a Sub-GHz (27-1,050MHz) narrow-band transceiver and power amplifier, and programmable analogue and programmable digital blocks.
Capable of supporting popular wireless protocols including Sigfox, the family of devices provides unprecedented flexibility and true system-on-a-single-chip capabilities for a range of IoT applications. Memory options will cover the popular 64k/128k/256/k Flash sizes at speed grades of 20MHz or 48MHz.
In the automotive sector, semiconductor technology is fundamental to enabling the progression towards fully autonomous driving and the relentless trend of increasing electronic content in connected vehicles. ON Semiconductor’s multiple exhibits and interactive demonstrations covering areas such as image sensing and in-car wireless charging will underline the company’s industry-leading solutions in these exciting and fast moving areas of technology.
The company will also illustrate its expertise and innovations in areas such as battery-free smart passive sensing, image sensing for machine vision, USB Type-C, and integrated power management solutions. These technologies and devices are enabling the development of compelling new end products across multiple industrial and consumer markets. Many of these can be seen on display around Embedded World, including IoT applications relating to smart home / smart buildings and security and surveillance.
Amongst the other demos at the ON Semiconductor booth will be the company’s RSL10 multi-protocol Bluetooth 5 radio system-on-chip which is key to enabling ultra-low power IoT applications. RSL10’s energy efficiency was recently validated by the EEMBC’s ULPMark where it produced Core Profile scores more than twice as high as the previous industry leader.
