With the rising demand for battery-operated IoT devices, the adoption of low-power Wi-Fi too has intensified. The new DA16200 SoC from Dialog Semiconductor delivers a superior battery life for Wi-Fi-connected, battery-powered IoT devices such as smart door locks and wearables. The company has announced that this latest device has scored 815 on the EEMBC IoTMark Wi-Fi benchmark. This is equivalent to 815 days of battery life for an IoT sensor running on two AA batteries.
DA16200 SoC is low power Wi-Fi networking SoC that ensures long battery life even for the devices that are continuously connected to the Wi-Fi network. Additionally, the chip also features strong IoT security, including WPA3 and TLS for authentication and encryption at Wi-Fi and higher stack layers. It is a full offload device and the entire Wi-Fi and TCP/IP networking stack and even end product application code can run on the chip without any external CPU or MCU. With VirtualZero technology and the Arm Cortex-M4 processor of the Wi-Fi SoC from the company, the customers can easily build disruptive, power-efficient IoT products for the future.
