SiP provides drop-in Bluetooth 5 solution
The RSL10 System-in-Package (SiP) from ON Semiconductor integrates an antenna, the RSL10 radio System-on-Chip (SoC), and all required passive components in one miniature package, reducing design efforts and accelerating time-to-market. Housed within the 51-pin, 6×8×1.46-mm module is the RSL10 Bluetooth 5 certified, multiprotocol radio SoC, which offers ultra-low power consumption for wireless applications without compromising battery life.
The RSL10 consumes just 62.5 nW in deep sleep mode and 7 mW peak in receive mode. It supports Bluetooth Low Energy and 2.4 GHz proprietary/custom protocols. Receive sensitivity is -93 dBm and transmitting power is -17 dBm to 0 dBm. According to the manufacturer, the RSL10 achieves EEMBC ULPMark Core Profile scores for energy efficiency of 1090 at 3 V and 1260 at 2.1 V.
