Bluetooth 5.0 MCU serves battery maintenance-free IoT devices
RENESAS ELECTRONICSRE01B 32-bit ultra-low power consumption microcontroller (MCU) with Bluetooth 5.0 support, was developed using firm’s SOTB (Silicon on Thin Buried Oxide) process technology. MCU is suitable for energy harvesting systems and intelligent IoT devices that need to operate constantly at extremely low power levels without the need to replace or recharge batteries. Device makes it easier to implement regular data management and firmware updates over Bluetooth while maintaining ultra-low power consumption, and extending the battery life. Applications include compact healthcare devices; remote controls with voice recognition capabilities and smart meter modules.
