Complete radio IP solutions

The Cordio radio IP solutions for WPAN are a highly integrated and ultra-low power CMOS radio IP that incorporates Bluetooth 5 and the IEEE 802.15.4-2006 standards, and are suitable for applications requiring single-mode devices. 

The fully integrated IP solution,  and a one-source solution from RF to stack, includes a transceiver, baseband, and link layer firmware as well as Cordio stacks and profiles. The integrated link layer subsystem provides an energy efficient, timing-independent interface to the host processor, enabling easy implementation of the stack and application layers. In addition, the subsystem controls the sleep and wake-up times of the host processor leading to lower system-wide power consumption. 

The Cordio radio IP is a native sub-1 Volt platform – with all core circuits within the radio are designed at 950 mV (nominal). Due to the lower operating point for the internal circuits, the total power consumed during TX and RX is ~ 7mW.
