Fujitsu Electronics Europe is working with the US based company InnoPhase in exploring their extreme low-power PolaRFusion radio architecture for battery-based wireless IoT applications. The revolutionary radio architecture moves RF processing functionality from power-hungry and large analog circuits into efficient, low-power digital logic. This opens new possibilities in the utilization of today’s WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, and other popular protocol radios. The lower power consumption will enable a whole new class of battery-based IoT devices.
Immediately after the market launch of InnoPhase's first product at the beginning of 2018, the Talaria ONE ULP WiFi Radio, FEEU has been evaluating the potential of WiFi being available in battery-based applications. Based on customer feedback and ideas, InnoPhase is now planning to expand the device’s feature set in a new product coming soon in 2019.
By combining Energy Harvesting from E-Peas with the Ultra-Low Power MCUs from Ambiq Micro and Fujitsu FRAM, InnoPhase’s PolaRFusion adds a new level of freedom in the selection of the used RF protocol while applications remain battery-based and energy-efficient. Selected application examples featuring the upcoming devices from InnoPhase will be made available by FEEU on the ClickBeetle reference platform.
