Ubilite, a fabless semiconductor company that develops Ultra Low Power Wi-Fi Chipsets for IoT applications, has announced the immediate availability of its UBI206 platform based on the UBI206 SoC, targeted specifically for ultra-low power wireless applications. The UBI206 is a highly integrated single device that enables a vast number of IoT products with a minimal number of external components. It includes a switchless 802.11b/g/n radio, baseband processor, medium access controller (MAC), power management unit (PMU), memories, and a network application processor that runs the Wi-Fi link-layer protocols, TCP/IP stack, and IoT applications.
“UBI206 specifications are better by an order of magnitude than existing Wi-Fi solutions. The UBI206 was designed from the ground up to system level to optimize for lowest operating power and is the result of many years of development,” said Ismail Lakkis, CEO and founder of Ubilite. “Our solution offers a Wi-Fi experience with power consumption matching Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), thereby unleashing the full power of the IoT and enabling applications never before possible.”
“IoT applications require low power processors and connectivity – especially if they are battery powered,” said Phil Solis, Research Director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors at IDC. “The market for Wi-Fi-enabled IoT devices will reach over 2.2 billion units in 2026 – about 44% of the 5.1 billion total Wi-Fi-enabled products that year.”
The UBI206 is optimized for several ultra-low power IoT markets including wearables, trackers, beacons, healthcare, smart home, industrial systems monitoring and control, and audio.
