Infineon Technologies AG today announced the new AIROC CYW43022 ultra-low power, dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth combo, extending its broad portfolio of existing AIROC Wi-Fi and Bluetooth products. The CYW43022 ultra-low power architecture delivers industry-leading performance, with up to a 65 percent reduction in power usage during “deep sleep,” significantly extending battery life for applications such as smart locks, smart wearables, IP cameras and thermostats.
“As a leader in Wi-Fi and IoT technologies, Infineon has developed an innovative approach to maximizing battery life in some of the most power-sensitive consumer devices,” said Sivaram Trikutam, Vice President of Wi-Fi Product Line, Infineon. “By optimizing the sleep power for battery-operated IoT devices, consumers can now enjoy longer battery life compared to competing solutions. With the industry’s lowest power consumption for a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combination, this new solution enables more devices to be smarter, connected, and more versatile in a wide range of environments.”
The Infineon AIROC CYW43022 ultra-low power, dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.3 combo includes Wi-Fi network offloads and an embedded Bluetooth stack reducing power demands on host processors. To support designs with smaller antennas or designs that require longer reach, the combo includes a Class 1 Bluetooth PA with +18 dBm transmit power. Secure boot with firmware image authentication requiring signed Infineon firmware protects against hacker attacks.
