ON Semiconductor Advances Battery-Less IoT with Bluetooth Low Energy Multi-Sensor Platform
April 11, 2019 / Ken Briodagh
ON Semiconductor recently released its new RSL10 Multi-Sensor Platform powered solely with a solar cell, which reportedly is designed to support the development of IoT sensors using continuous solar energy harvesting to gather and communicate data through Bluetooth Low Energy, without the need for batteries or other forms of non-renewable energy. The combination of ultra-low-power wireless communications, small form-factor solar cell and low duty cycle sensing applications makes it possible to develop and deploy totally maintenance-free IoT sensor nodes, the company said. The RSL10 Solar Cell Multi-Sensor Platform is enabled by the RSL10 SIP, a System-in-Package (SiP) solution featuring the RSL10 radio, integrated antenna and all passive components.
